Review of 66 East 11th Street by Carter Horsley

This very handsome, 8-story, mid-block building at 66 East 11th Street between University Place and Broadway in Greenwich Village was erected in 1897 and has 5 condominium apartments.

The building was originally a dress factory and more recently a garage.

Delos, of which Paul D. Scalia, a former partner at Goldman Sachs, is a founder, was the developer. Its projects promote “Wellness Real Estate” that designs “amenities” that “research suggests will improve various aspects of individual occupant health including: cardiovascular, respiratory and sleep health, orthopedic health, weight and metabolism management, stress reduction, mood enhancement, cognition and memory enhancement, health literacy and health behavior motivation.”

Other founders are his twin brother, Peter, and Morad Fareed, a former executive of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide and a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, and Renato Termale.

The building’s “advisory board” includes Deepak Chopa, the self-improvement guru, Terry McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and current governor of Virginia, Richard A. Gephardt, a former majority leader of the House of Representatives, Mel Martinez, a former Secretary of the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Nicholas F. Russo of the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Michael Roizen of the Cleveland Clinic, and Dolly Lenz, the real estate broker.

According to its website, “a portion of Delos sales proceeds will go towards the funding and construction of 200 homes in the poorest refugee community in Haiti, a Clinton Global Initiative commitment.”  “This means,” it continued, “ that every single one of the five world’s first residences at 66 East 11th street will also be a world first in another way - the most aggressive giveback of housing for housing – or roughly 40 homes donated for every Delos home sold.”

SFA Design was the interior designer.

According to a Page Six item by Emily Smith in the February 26, 2014 edition of The New York Post, Mr. Chopra has purchased an apartment in the building, as has Leonardo DiCaprio, the actor.
