This five-story wing, whose height is actually smaller than the adjacent, and much grander, townhouses, was the result of a major controversy with the community, many of whose civic leaders protested the original plan to put the 20-story tower flush with the street fronting the park. The bulk of the building, a white-brick slab setback from the avenue with two bays that...
