Carter Horsley's Review of The Forum

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This midblock tower is one of the strangest-looking in the city as its top is rakishly slanted and clad in glass while the rest of the building is relatively quite conventional. Although it is not very tall, the 25-story building's midblock location makes it quite visible from many parts of the Upper East Side, and therefore affords its upper floor residents good views. The massing of the building is unusual also for a midblock building: the western half of its street frontage is set back from a low-rise wing to create a plaza and its tower is further setback from its mid-rise base, to lessen its impact on the sidestreet. The lower three floors of the red-brick building are clad in limestone and the entrance has double-height arches, a rather flamboyant, but not unwelcome touch for the area. The building, which was developed by the Carlyle Development Corporation and designed by the Vilkas Group, has 148 cooperative apartments. The building, which was completed in 1986, has a garage, health club, concierge, balconies, doorman, and climate control units in the apartments." Read Carter's Full Review
