This attractive building replaced the famous Brevoort mansion. Completed in 1926, the 15-story building opened as the Fifth Avenue Hotel, designed for permanent residents. The 419 apartments were subsequently converted to tenant ownership. Designed by Emery Roth, the building has a very large and very elegant lobby ith a long, wide corridor with carved plaster ceiling and marble mosaic panels et into pilasters. The first floor contained a very large dining room that riginally was designed in Pompeian style with a sunken garden. The two-story base of the building is covered with limestone and the rest of the building is covered in two shades of buff brick with terra-cotta trim.
