This is an apartment building and hotel located on the southern edge of Central Park between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. It contains 155 apartments on 36 floors. The site of Hampshire House was originally the site of an eight-building housing cooperative complex called Navarro Flats, which was built from 1882 to 1884. At the time, Central Park South contained a multitude of high-class apartment buildings. However, Navarro Flats was not successful, and it closed by the 1920s.Hampshire House was first planned at the site in 1926, and was built as two parts. The Central Park South building was envisioned as a narrow tower with a dome, but the plans were changed to a 36-story apartment hotel in the Regency and Art Deco styles. Construction of the $6 million Hampshire House was delayed until January 1931. The structure was done by July 1931. but the building's developers ran out of money and the interior design and roof was not completed.
