Description

The Olcott is a handsome, 16-story, mid-block, pre-war apartment building at 27 West 72nd Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. 

It was erected in 1925 and 99 of its 102 rental apartments were converted to condominiums in 2005 by Brack Capital, of which Mose Dan-Azougi is a principal, and Stellar Management of which Laurence Gluck is a principal. 

The building was designed by George Pelham and originally had about 227 units, of which 90 were transient, 31 were professional, three were commercial and one was a "lounge unit" on the roof. The professional units in the building are on the second through the ninth floors. 

The building has 162 condominium apartments. 

The building extends through the block to 24-26 West 73rd Street and it is on the same block as the famous Dakota apartment building that fronts on Central Park West.

One of the commercial units in the building is Dallas BBQ, a restaurant.
