SWANNANOA
105 East 15th Street
Architect: Gilbert A. Schellinger
1898-1900

Swannoa

The Swannanoa is a 10-story Neo-Renaissance apartment building designed by a prolific designer of residentail buildings whose name is generally associated with single-family rowhouses. The building was planned with 40 apartments, four on each floor. Its most imposing feature is the two-story base with granite pilasters and projecting portico supported by four granite columns. Above the portico are seven-story rounded bays, undoubtedly designed to provide residents with views toward nearby Union Square. The brick-faced upper floors are extensively ornamented with terra cotta, including foliate detail, cartouches, lion heads, and dolphins.
