View looking along 95th Street towards 5th Avenue
According to the New York Landmarks Commission, this is the first truly Classical building to be built in Manhattan since the 1960s.
It has been designed, together with the adjacent building on 3 East 95th Street, an early 20th Century mansion by Horace Trumbauer, to provide four large luxury apartments in the heart of the Carnegie Hill Area on the Upper East Side.
Contextually, the new building takes advantage of the courtyard on the East, which is the property of the neighbouring landmark building, The House of the Redeemer, an Italianate brick and stone mansion of the early 20th century. This has allowed for a more elaborate corner condition to be developed, in response to the prominent view seen by pedestrians as they approach 5th Avenue from the East.
