The Delano– Built in 1937 to designs by me Cohn Brothers, die six-story-and-basement Delano Apartments is among die later apartment buildings erected in die historic district. Typical of that phase of development, die building occupies a large mid-block site and has a deep entrance court which breaks up its street front into two sections. The main entrance is set into a full-height three-sided bay. The building is similar in design to a number of other buildings in the district produced by me Conn Brothers firm. Faced in red brick with white trim, the building is neo-Georgian in style. Elements which are typical of the style include the projecting entrance containing a door surround of engaged columns supporting an entablature with a broken pediment; the windows with multi-pane arched sash flanking the entrance; brickwork imitating quoins and brick and stone band courses; relieving arches with brick headers; stone keystones; small oval windows; monumental brick pilasters supporting an architrave; and pediment motifs at the roofline (the parapet has been rebuilt and the projecting portions of the pediments have been removed). The double-leaf wood-and-glass doors are surmounted by a transom. Brick pedestals and iron fences span the entrance to the court.
