How was this building rated?

This 194-unit, apartment building was erected by RFR Holdings, Inc., in 2000 and was the first residential tower designed by architect Michael Graves to be built in the city.

Graves, who is best known for his unbuilt designs for an addition to the Whitney Museum of American Art on Madison Avenue at 75th Street, his elegant and colorful architectural drawings, his line of kitchenware, a civic building in Portland, Oregon, the headquarters of the Humana company, and hotels for Disneyworld in Florida, had designed a handsome, mixed-use tower for Sotheby's nearby at York Avenue and 72nd Street that was never built.

Here, Graves has designed a very bold and busy façade fronting on First Avenue.

The windows are large and multi-paned and the façade is divided into three-st...
