Summary of site plans and status

Built in 1928 as the Central Savings Bank, this landmark building was designed in an Italian Renaissance Palazzo style by the architects Edward York and Philip Sawyer.

The top four floors (which had previously been rental office spaces) of this building have been converted from office space to 27 condominium apartments, and the bank at the base of this building has been left unchanged. The entrance to the condos is at 2112 Broadway, near 74th St. According to a 17 April, 2005 article in the “New York Times”, some are worried that the condominium owners will destroy the “1920’s character” of the building.

On November 15, 2005, Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the application to modify the West 74th Street entrance. As of April 25, 2006, Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the application to install sidewalk canopies and signage.
