This elegant, 15-story apartment building at 75 Central Park West on the northwest corner at 67th Street was designed by Rosario Candela for Fred T. Ley  & Company in 1929.

It has 48 co-operative apartments. It does not allow pied-a-terre purchases. Pets are permitted with board approval. 

It is adjacent to the Hotel des Artistes at 1 West 67th Street.

Bottom Line

An elegant pre-war building designed by Rosario Candela at a prime Central Park West location.

Description

The building has a three-story rusticated limestone base with a large entrance marquee and a balustraded bandcourse above the third floor. There are handsome decorative balconies on the sixth and 12h floors. There are escutcheons on the first floor and the red-brick façade is modulated with pairs of quoins at either end of its façades culminating in three-story-high pilasters. The center windows on the 12th floor are topped with lunettes and there is garland façade decoration between the 13th and 14th floors. The cornice line above the 14th floor is decorated with a fence motif and tall urns and the watertank enclosure has a tall arched window.

The building has inconsistent fenestration and some protruding air-conditioners.

There is a large professional suite on the ground floor.

Amenities

The building has a doorman and a concierge, storage and a laundry.

Apartments

Apartment 7D is a two-bedroom unit that has a 10-foot-long entry foyer that leads to a 25-foot-long living room with a fireplace in one direction and a 17-foot-long dining room in the other next to a large L-shaped kitchen and a maid’s from.

Apartment 8A is a two-bedroom unit with a 14-foot-long entry foyer that opens onto a 22-foot-long living room with wood-burning fireplace and an 18-foot-long eat-in kitchen.

History

According to “The Apartment Buildings of Rosario Candela and James E. R. Carpenter” by Andrew Alpern, “in 1951, Candela, then associated with architect Paul Resnick, filed a plan for an ‘atomic escape hatch: from the ground floor carriage room to the cellar ‘to be used for aerial or atomic attack during an emergency.”

The building replaced the 7-story Town House Hotel that was erected in 1917 by the Artists’ Syndicate that erected the adjoining Hotel Des Artistses.
