Originally built between 1896 and 1928 for St. Luke’s Hospital and used as a hospital services wing, the four-building complex has now been transformed into 205 market-rate apartments. The redevelopment included new infill and interior renovation to create residential units and amenity space.

The buildings’ original finishes and landmarked façades were preserved while complicated architectural moves, such as realigning all the floors across the different buildings, were also incorporated.

Other amenities include a 3,000-sf fitness center and rooftop terraces with views of Morningside and Central Park.
