Description

The building is part of the development Tudor City [3.2] which was a speculative venture by Fred F French. It was considered one of the first residential skyscraper complexes in the world and thus set a new density standard. A private effort to revitalise a former slum, Tudor City was built as a new residential area to serve the commercial district around Grand Central Terminal. Woodstock Tower is an apartment hotel with 454 rooms. The volume sculpturally sets back towards the top. Apartments at the top of the building replace the hotel rooms of the bottom part. The structure is steel with a cladding in brick, enhanced by English Tudor details.
