Residences at Prince via Aaron Thompson Residences at Prince via Aaron Thompson
For the development team of Time Equities and Hamlin Ventures, the Residences at Prince are all about using the past as the foundation for the future. Take the view from the penthouse. You would never imagine yourself to be looking at New York from up there. There’s no hustle or bustle, and you’re surrounded by beautiful, slanted rooftops, as if you’re in old world Europe. You almost expect to see an old cathedral, and then you do: The Residences at Prince stands adjacent to the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral. And while new development is sprouting up throughout New York, nothing can replace the landmarked Cathedral.

The Residences at Prince are landmarked too, having started out as the Old St. Patrick’s School and Convent. Marvel Architects redesigned the building’s interior while honoring much of the original building’s charm. There are exposed brick and gas fireplaces throughout, and the penthouse and one of the remaining townhouses retain the same wooden beams that bore witness to the march of Union soldiers heading toward the Civil War. In fact, those wooden beams are more authentic now than they’ve been in years, as Marvel Architects had them hand-painted to match the natural color and grain (the wooden beams had been treated with white paint to achieve flame resistance).

For all their Old-World charm, the homes at Residences at Prince are outfitted with all the luxuries and amenities modern buyers have come to expect. The bathrooms feature radiant heated floors, stunning Waterworks tubs that beg for sumptuous spa treatments, and even steam showers. The kitchens are bursting with inconspicuous storage space and come adorned with marble countertops and top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances. Each unit also provides real white oak floors and the sort of silence that makes you forget you’re living in a popular, bustling Nolita neighborhood. The beloved Café Habana, Prince Street Pizza, and Little Cupcake Bakeshop can be seen from the windows…which make it a good thing the building has its own gym and yoga studio. Additional amenities include a climate-controlled wine cellar, bike room, and private storage.

And yet, despite all the similarities, each home is uniquely its own. While they contain enough room to host large gatherings and personal wine cellars for libations, they also have what it takes to raise a family, and a multi-generational one at that. Of course, convention does not dictate how one uses the space. Yes, unit #3C, a spacious duplex listed for $11.9 million, may have a Jack and Jill bathroom, but the use of that feature depends on the wants of the owner. Maybe the combination is for siblings, or maybe it’s for relatives and friends who’ve come to augment the family like a 90’s sitcom. Similarly, the bottom floor of unit #2A, a five-bedroom corner triplex for $10.25 million, may serve as a TV room, guest bedroom, and an office, but it can just as easily be a home for one’s elderly parents. (The one other availability is #PH, a four-bedroom duplex listed for $12.445 million with no shortage of space, either).

The Residences at Prince provides accommodations to match one’s imagination, and it also facilitates peace of mind with countless nooks and crannies to ease into the present moment and count one’s blessing. Whether it’s overlooking a tree line in bloom during the summer, enjoying a cocktail above a warm fireplace, or leaning on a marble countertop to inhale the scent of freshly brewed coffee in the morning, the Residences are a place to appreciate life’s gifts. In that way, it’s fitting that these homes are contained within the former Old St. Patrick’s School and Convent because, at the Residences at Prince, sacred moments flourish.
