Welcome home to Plaza West!! This lovely Beaux Arts building was built in 1911 using brick, stone, and iron by Gormley-Poynton Co., designed by Architect Simmons, B. Stanley, owned by Louis A Pirie, and built in the style of great iron buildings of the early 1900s.
In 2022 the building received Fannie Mae's approval to receive 30-year share loans! Many recent building projects have been completed in the past five years, beginning in 2018 - a new Boiler and a new Chiller. New roof in 2019 and painted the building's exterior. Renovated entrance canopy and elevator interior in 2020. Installed solar panels 2021. A new backup boiler in 2022. Coming in 2022-23, complete remodeling of the lobby, mailroom, and hall corridors. This beautiful co-op building retains its original charm and character, and no special assessment is due.
