Fakten

  • A more recent addition of a glassed-in-restaurant, complicated the last setback of the 26th floor, but the original outlines can still be determined.
  • Erected in 1927-29 as a residence and clubhouse for women belonging to national Greek-letter college sororities, the Panhellenic Tower provided affordable housing for young college-educated women who were entering the work force in record numbers in the 1920s.
  • Though sparsely decorated, the building incorporates handsome gothic-inspired art deco ornament by the leading architectural sculptor Rene Chambellan.
  • The tower is renowned for its dramatic volumetric massing and bold vertical striping created by deeply recessed window-and-spandrel bays set between narrow piers which rise unbroken from a two-story base to a parapet crown.
  • The 26-story, brown masonry-clad art deco tower rises with uncomplicated flair and rounded corners to the top, the latter resembling that of the American Standard Building.
  • Designated landmark status on February 3, 1998.
