This very handsome, 7-story building at 164 West 74th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues was formerly the former the Jack R. Aaron headquarters of Phoenix House, a non-profit alcohol and drug rehabilitation organization.  It was converted in 2018 to a 14 residential condominium apartments by Greystone Development, which is headed by Thomas Ryan, and Prime Rok Real Estate, which is headed by Afshin Hedvat. 

Buchman & Fox was the architect of the original building. 

Barry Rice was the architect for the conversion.  Maureen McDermott of Winter McDermott Design did the interiors.  Mr. Rice's other projects in Manhattan include 1100 Park Avenue and 100 Barrow Street. 

This building, which is within the Central Park West Historic District, was erected in 1901 as a luxury hotel.
