Carter's View

Facade cleaning is nearly done at 60 Spring Street, the very handsome former East River Savings Bank Building that was designed in 1924 by Cass Gilbert, the architect of the Woolworth Building at 233 Broadway.

The building, which has a chamfered corner at Lafayette Street, was converted last year to 40 condominium apartments by the LB Group, which consists of Boymelgreen Developers, African Israel Investments and the Leviev Group. Tsao & McKown were the interior architects for the conversion and Ismael Levya Architects handled the architectural conversion that included the addition of a penthouse level.

The building still has a construction shed around its limestone base as work was recently completely cleaning and restoring the tall ground floor columns and construction work in the former banking hall is now proceeding as the retail section of the building was recently sold.

The building, whose residential entrance is at 225 Lafayette Street, is one block north and across the street from One Kenmare Square, a new condominium apartment building that has an undulating facade and is now nearing completion.
