How was this building rated?

The former anchor of Riverside Drive, this fine and distinguished apartment building at 344 west 72nd Street is known as the Chatsworth and was designed by John E. Scharsmith and completed in 1904. A smaller annex was designed by the same architect just to the west at 340 West 72nd Street in 1906.

The Chatsworth actually consists of three buildings. In addition to the annex there is a building at 353 West 71st Street.

In their wonderful book, "The A. I. A. Guide to New York City, Fourth Edition," (Three Rivers Press, 2000), Elliot Willensky and Norval White described these buildings as "gracious russet-colored brick apartment blocks embellished with lavish limestone trim in the tradition of the Kenilworth and Rossleigh Court/Orwell House."

This 12-story building overlooks Riverside Park and is adjacent to the large Riverside South development overlooking the Hudson River that Donald Trump starting erecting in the 1980s.

When it opened it had 66 “housekeeping units,” some as large as 15 rooms, but most were subdivided by 1996 when there were about 169 rent units.

It had been developed by George F. Johnson Jr., and Aleck Kahn, who had built the large Hendrik Hudson Apartments on Riverside Drive at 110th Street.

John E. Scharsmith was the architect of the Beaux Arts-style Chatsworth and its 8-story annex.

According to a September 26, 2014 article in The New York Times by C. J. Hughes, HFZ Capital, headed by Ziel Feldman, and BSG Real Estate Ltd., brought the building for about $150 million in 2012,and planned to reduce the number of apartments to 81 condominiums.  About a quarter of the units were rent-regulated at the time of the article.
