After more than a decade of rumbling, construction has finally advanced on the conversion of an Italianate-styled building at 66-68 Reade Street in Tribeca. Designed by Samuel A. Warner, the 5-floor building was finished between 1856-57 and is one of the many commercial store and loft structures built during that time. The double-wide building is protected within the Tribeca South Historic District (designated in 1992), and dons a marble façade with segmentally-arched rectangular windows.
Now, the building’s longtime owner, Jean Hieber and the architects of Preservation Green L.L.C. are writing the 160-year-old building’s next chapter. With a design approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, in 2012, the structure is proposed to hold 5 large residential condos with two retail spaces below.

The apartment breakdown calls for three single floor units and two penthouse duplexes. The penthouses will offer rooftop gardens and views of the downtown skyline. There will also be a new elevator and stair core installed.
Following the Commission’s preferred “spirit of invisibility" rule, a new 16-foot-high sixth floor will be setback from the streetwall —just out of view from passersby below on Reade. In 2006, Heiber sought to build a much larger 3-floor addition atop the structure but the LPC was not convinced the slanted addition would be "invisible" from the street.
