This large, red-brick, rental apartment tower was designed by Davis, Brody for The Related Companies and completed in 1986.

It is one of the few buildings in Manhattan with a major curve, which provides many apartments with very broad bay windows. The developer also used a similar, but much larger, curve for another major development nearby, the Monterey at 175 East 96th Street (see The City Review article) that was designed by Costas Kondylis and completed in 1992.

Its tower is flanked by low-rise bases on the avenue and the sidestreet and the building's red-brick facade nicely complements the large Ruppert Plaza development a couple of blocks south on the avenue.

A subway station is at Lexington and 96th Street and cross-town bus service is also available on 96th Street. The building overlooks the Carnegie Hill neighborhood, one of the most desirable in the city, to the west and this area became very lively in the mid-90's as there are many restaurants and nice shops in the vicinity.

The corner entrance is highlighted by glass blocks. The building has discrete air-conditioners and its red-brick of the facades is particular rich in color. The low-rise sections of the development provide more light and air for the tower's apartments.
