    How was this building rated?

    The Carlton House is a 16-story, brown-brick, apartment building occupies the entire western blockfront on Madison Avenue between 61st and 62nd Street.

    It was designed by Kenneth B. Norton in 1950 and contained 161 units, mostly suites.

    The building, whose address is 680 Madison Avenue, has several terraces and some bay windows.

    The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved Extell Development Company's rehabilitation and restoration plans for the former Carlton House Hotel at 680 Madison Avenue (between 61st and 62nd Streets) in Manhattan on July 19, 2011.

    The unanimous vote cleared the way for Extell and its partner, Angelo Gordon & Company, to proceed with their plans to convert the building’s hotel and residential units to 68 apartments and one townhouse unit.

    The architect for the conversion is Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners LLP.
