George Fred Pelham designed 124-126 East 63rd Street, as a stable in 1921. 63rd Street was known as the street of stables and this building was originally constructed as a four-story, stucco stable and later converted to a garage. It is a modest building without distinguishing architectural details.
This building is a 4 story parking garage and full cellar constructed of wood, steel, stucco and concrete. The lot is 5,021 square feet. Zoning would permit a construction of 5,000 FAR on the roof. There is a MTA cooling tower that is located on the roof. There are windows in the front and rear and at different levels on the east and west wall.
