50 Madison

The former headquarters of the ASPCA on Madison Square was used in the way good but superannuated, antiquated building has been used for millennia: as a starting point for a larger building for a different use – in this case, full-floor apartments. Platt Byard Dovell White completed the conversion of the former four-story 1898 Italianate mansion on the eastern side of Madison Square into an 11-story condominium building. To integrate the combination of old and new, the cornice and one story of the old building were removed. The remaining three stories dovetail with eight new ones in a dignified but non-derivative expression of an eleven-story condominium.
