BEYOND THE STATS

  • The General Petroleum Building, also known as the Mobil Oil Building, was designed by the noted architectural firm Wurdeman and Becket and completed in 1949. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building has been transformed into the Pegasus Apartments, named in tribute to the flying red horse that was displayed for decades on the rooftop.
  • By effectively utilizing the original modular layout, the project creates spacious studios and two-bedroom loft apartments, arranged around two existing light wells, and preserves the existing historic corridors and doors.
  • The original uniquely designed aluminum casement windows and sleek silver aluminum panels are distinguishing features of the building’s bold International Corporate style facade. A rooftop pool and glassy gymnasium offer tenants special gathering spaces with spectacular views.
