Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"Whereas most slab towers have their main axis along the avenues, this enormous apartment building has its along the cross-street, which affords many of its residents excellent views to the north and south over lower-rise mid-block structures.

Erected in 1975, this 36-story tower has 532 apartments of which 462 are one-bedroom units. The building was converted to a condominium in 1986." Read Carter's Full Review
