Central Park West Historic District
The building was originally planned to be a 45 story hotel, but the plans were changed midway through construction due to the depression and the passing of the Multiple Dwelling Act, which restricted a building's height immediately above the street, but allowed tall towers if the property was sufficiently large. The Majestic replaced the Hotel Majestic, designed byAlfred Zucker in 1894, which had been home to Gustav Mahler and Edna Ferber, among others.
