Excerpt from LPC designation report of July 9, 1985:

The Century Apartments, extending along the entire blockfront of Central Park West between West 62nd Street to West 63rd Street, anchors the southern end of one of New York City’s finest residential boulevards.  With twin towers rising 300 feet from the street, this building is one of a small group of related structures that help give Central Park West its distinctive silhouette.  Designed in 1930 by Irwin S. Chanin of the Chanin Construction Company, the Century Apartments is among the most sophisticated residential Art Deco buildings in New York and is a major work by one of America’s pioneering Art Deco designers.
