How was this building rated?

This impressive complex at 455 Central Park West between 105th and 106th streets began as The New York Cancer Hospital in 1887 and then became a nursing home before it was redeveloped as a spectacular and very dramatic residential condominium in 2005. 

The original building with its broad turrets and chapel, which was designed by Charles Coolidge Haight in French chateau style with English Gothic trim, became an official New York City landmark in 1976. 

It now has 16 apartments in the very distinguished, low-rise, older buildings and 83 units in a 25-story, red-brick tower designed by Rothzeid Kaiserman Thomson and Bee on the northwestern part of the site. RTKB Architects, Perkins Eastman Architects and Victor Caliandro were the architects involved in the new tower and restoration of the original buildings. 

The Rockwell Group designed the lobby. 

MCL Companies of Chicago, which is headed by Daniel E. McLean, did the conversion.
