Built in 1937 to designs by Joshua Tabatchnik, the six-story-and-basement Allendale Apartments is among die later apartment buildings erected in the historic district. Typical of that phase of development, the building occupies a large mid-block site and is planned with two lightcourts which break up the long street front into three sections. The widest section, at the center, has a shallow recess where the entrance is located, flanked by full-height three-sided bays; each lightcourt has a similar bay. Designed in the neo-Georgian style, the building is similar to a number of other contemporary buildings in the historic district. Elements which are typical of the style include brickwork imitating quoins; monumental brick pilasters with stone trim, applied to the upper facade; brick dentil courses and entablatures; tripartite Palladian-inspired windows set into relieving arches composed of brick headers; gables with oculi at the roofline; and parapet balustrades. Niches flanking die entrance contain urns. A few original multi-pane wood windows survive at the basement level. The entrance doors have been replaced.
