Constructed in 1925, this elegant limestone-clad pre-war cooperative was designed by Emery Roth and Thomas Hastings. At the time, this 41-story tower was the first tallest residential building in the city. New York City’s apartment building height regulations applied to apartments with individual kitchens, which the Ritz did not offer. This meant that the Tower could be built much higher than any of its contemporary residential buildings. The Ritz is considered to be a strong symbol of a transition in American architecture, with Hastings and Roth incorporating a strong classical style into a building of ground-breaking height and size. According to Robert A. M. Stern, Gregory Gilmartin and Thomas Mellins, the Ritz Tower “was intended from the beginning to be the apogee of urban living.”
