ArchitectGordon Bunshaft

It was built from 1950 to 1951.[1][2] Designed by architect Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, the architectural style has been described as modernist.[1][2] The building was made with concrete, and the facade with white bricks.[2] Being 214 feet tall, it is considered a high-rise building.[2] It overlooks a private garden with two sculptures by Hans Van de Bovenkamp.[3]

The building is residential. It contains many condominiums.[1] Notable tenants have included furniture designer Florence Knoll, actress Grace Kelly, clarinetist Benny Goodman, former Governor Hugh Carey, and businessman Frank Hardart, the co-founder of Horn & Hardart.[4]

It became a New York City Landmark in 2007, a designation conferred by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission for its influential mid-century modernist architecture.[4] In 2014, the penthouses were redesigned by Cuban-born interior designer Vicente Wolf.[5][6]

It is co-owned by N. Richard Kalikow, a real estate developer, and Jeremiah W. O'Connor, Jr., the Managing Partner at O’Connor Capital Partners, a private equity firm.[4][7] Both men disagreed on their 2007 renovation project.[7]
