The eleven-story Parkstone Apartments looms as the talructlest building in West Village Historic District and serves as a focal point of the neighborhood. The Chippewa Apartment Company, Owner of the Paekhurst Apartments kitty-corner from the Parkstone received a permit to cconstruct an apartment-hotel” on the north side of Agnes between Parker and Van Dyke on June 1, 1925 at an estimated cost of $930,000. The Parkstone is of brick, tike and reinforced concrete construction. The face brick is rough-cast and limestone quoins, sills string courses and base accentuate this otherwise austere Georgian Revival building. Subtle ornamentation the diamond patterned brick of the building add interest to the façade.
The Parkstone Apartments, although out of scale with the houses around it off sets the other large apartment building, the Parkhurst, and contributes to the urban residential scale of West Village through its off street shops on Agnes.
