Carter's View

Some of the apartment layouts at the Apple Bank Building at 2112 Broadway, where construction shrouds have recently been removed, are quite unusual.

Residence A on the fourth floor is a two-bedroom, two-bath and one power room unit with 2,231 square feet. It is distinguished by an extremely long and narrow foyer/gallery that has entrance doors to four stairwells on its south side and a power room and a 14-by-9-foot kitchen opening onto a 8-by-7-foot breakfast room on its north side. The foyer/gallery leads to a 20-foot-4-inch by 17-foot-6-inch living/dining room.

Many of the other units have some angled walls, such as Residence C on the fourth floor at the building's northwest corner that has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 1 powder room with a total of 2,050 square feet. Its 23-foot-8-inch by 19-foot-6-inch living/dining room has five sides as does its 18-foot-2-inch by 13 foot master bedroom.

According to Michele Conte of Brown Harris Stevens, a 3,117-square foot apartment that faces south overlooking the park at 72nd Street has an asking price of $7,100,000 and has a windowed eat-in kitchen that measures "over 18' by 14'" and a walk-in laundry room with ceilings "over 12 feet high, towering windows and tons of closets, includes three linen closets."

Occupancy of the 29 residential condominiums, of which 40 percent have been reported to have been sold, is planned for next month.

The landmark building occupies the full block between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue and 73rd and 74th Street and dominates Verdi Square and the adjoining express subway station pavilion.

The top four floors of the 8-story building are being converted into the apartments, which will have an entrance at 2112 Broadway.

The huge and very impressive four-story high banking hall at the base of the building will not be altered in the conversion of the building's upper floors that until recently were used as offices.

SLCE Architects is designing the residential conversion and each apartment will have a different layout, all with large entry galleries. Six of the apartments will be duplexes with roof decks.

The residential portion of the building will have a 24-hour concierge in the lobby that has been designed by Beyer Blinder Belle Architects, a canine grooming center on the 8th floor, an exercise room beneath a chandelier under 21-foot-high ceilings on the second floor, a commercial laundry facility and bronze mailboxes "at each home's entrance."

The landmark building was built in 1928 for the Central Savings Bank that formerly was located at 14th Street and Fourth Avenue. It was designed by York & Sawyer in the same monumental, Italian Renaissance-palazzo style the architects employed at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York Building in Lower Manhattan. The bank was founded in

1859 as the German Savings Bank in the City of New York and changed its name to the Central Savings Bank during World War I and subsequently it became the Apple Bank.

The bank continues to operate within the building's vast and spectacular vaulted banking hall - one of the city's most impressive interior spaces that is a designated interior landmark.

The building, which has a resident superintendent, commands one of the few prominent "key" sites in Manhattan at the intersection of two avenues such as the Flatiron Building at 23rd Street and the former site of the Herald Tribune at 35th Street between Broadway and The Avenue of the Americas and the former Times Tower at 43rd Street between Broadway and Seventh Avenue.

The sponsor is The Stahl Organization that was founded by the late Stanley Stahl in 1949. Its other properties include the Chanin Building on 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue, 277 Park Avenue and the Western Union Building in TriBeCa. It also owns the Apple Bank of Savings and the Cauldwell Wingate Company.
