This Tudor style apartment building was actually a house of many mansions: each arm of the x-shaped plan contained two-story apartments as spacious and well-appointed as any freestanding home. Darwin R. Martin (whose father had built the Darwin D. Martin House by Frank Lloyd Wright) was behind this project, and his luxury penthouse occupied the top floors. The grand apartments have since been split into single-floor units that are now sold rather than rented. – Designed by Bley & Lymon in 1929
