Between 72nd Street and 96th Street buildings have a height limit of about 20 storeys. Above 96th Street and below 72nd Street the buildings are much taller.
The building in question is the Princeton House. A relatively straightforward and attractive condominium, it was part of a crop of new buildings along Broadway that sprang up in the 1980's that made an effort to relate to the existing architectural context.
The building was completed in 1987.
Furthermore, the Princeton House was designed by Schuman, Lichtenstein, Claman & Efron. The boxy, 17-story is typical of much construction of the period: clean-cut, simple and efficient.
