Though the celebrated American architect and first-ever Pritzker Prize winner Philip Johnson passed away in 2005, his design tenets endure through his multi-disciplinary firm of Philip Johnson/Alan Ritchie Architects (PJAR). Now led by Alan Ritchie who worked with Johnson for more than 25 years, the proactive continues to produce Post-modern and contemporary structures around the globe. While the Manhattan-based office has been quiet locally — with their last major commissions being the condos Renwick Modern (2017) in Hudson Square and Number 5 (2009) near Grand Central, the office has been tapped to design a ground-up condo downtown to be known as Gramercy 1860.

Situated on a tree-lined block at 327 East 22nd Street, midway between First and Second avenues, the 11-unit the project is being developed by Suzuki Capital who purchased the 50-foot-wide lot for $11.5 million in April 2014. The sale also included 7,000 square feet of air rights allowing the building to include several more units, but not enough to overshadow its low-rise neighbors. The site was formerly the home of the 21st Precinct station said to date back to "the Gangs of New York era." It most recently served as a group home for LGBT youth and was demolished at the beginning of 2018.

Keeping with the firm's loyalty to Modernism with hints of traditional, the exterior is understated and finished with dark-toned panels, casement-style windows, and tastefully-designed balconies. The upper floor is stepped back from the street, providing a large terrace for the lucky penthouse owner.

The residences will consist of eight floor-through two-bedrooms, two three-bedroom maisonettes, and a two-bedroom penthouse with a private roof terrace. All homes will have private balconies, in-unit washer/dryers, and oversized windows to bathe interiors with natural light. Building amenities will include a virtual doorman, lounge areas, bike room, and storage. The quiet section of Gramercy is a short walk to many of the neighborhood’s dining and attractions closer to Lexington and Park avenues. All the venues of the East Village, NoMad, and Flatiron are also a short walk away.
Like due to the pandemic, a sale launch has been delayed. The building is targeting a sellout of over $37M according to an accepted offering plan. According to a demolition worker on the site, “The tubs alone cost $20,000” (Town & Village). Moreover, CityRealty listings report that the median listed price of a two-bedroom condo in Gramercy is $2.54 million or $1,916/ ft2
