This complex to the north of San Juan Hill was part of the Lincoln Square Urban Renewal Project. The complex occupied 20 acres and had 3,837 apartments in 8 buildings. The apartments were rent stabilized until a co-op conversion in 1987. The layout is "tower in the park" with structures only occuping 19% of the footprint and a parking garage was integrated into development, reflecting the growing dominance of the automobile in mid-20th-century America.
