How was this building rated?

The northernmost of Central Park West's great twin-towered apartment houses, the 31-story Eldorado was completed in 1931 and was designed by Emery Roth, in collaboration with Margon & Holder. 

Roth also designed the twin-towered San Remo and the triple-towered Beresford, both further south on the avenue.

The Eldorado at 300 Central Park West between 90th and 91st Streets is roughly the same size as the other twin-towered buildings, but its 186 co-op apartments are generally smaller than those in the others. 

"The futuristic sculptural detailing of the El Dorado, as well as its geometric ornament and patterns and its contrasting materials and textures, make it one of the finest Art Deco structures in the city. The towers are terminated by ornamented setbacks with abstract geometric spires that have been compared to Flash Gordon finials," observed Steven Ruttenbaum in his definitive study of Emery Roth: "Mansions in the Clouds, the Skyscraper Palazzi of Emery Roth," Balsam Press Inc., 1986.

The building was declared a city landmark in 1985.
