Historic building restoration of brick masonry and copper roof.
Henson Architecture served as the Building Architect for this Landmark building, located in the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District.
Designed by Robert T. Lyons and completed in 1905, the St. Urban was part of the early generation of tall New York apartment buildings, which was ushered in by the construction of the Dakota in 1884.
Like many of these buildings, the St. Urban is firmly rooted in the Beaux-Arts tradition, with its high mansard roof, round corner tour, and elaborate copper detailing.
