10 Bond Street: Review and Ratings

at The Northwest corner of Lafayette Street View Full Building Profile

Carter Horsley
Review of 10 Bond Street by Carter Horsley

The very handsome, 7-story building now under construction at 10 Bond Street at the northwest corner at Lafayette Street has been designed by Annabelle Selldorf, the architect of 200 Eleventh Avenue, for SK Development, the Ironside Development Company and the Chetrit Group.

When it opens in 2015, it will have 11 co-operative apartments consisting of a townhouse unit, 9 two- and three-bedroom apartments and a penthouse.


 

Bottom Line

A very nice, solid, small building that keeps up the extraordinarily high standard of design established in recent years on Bond Street, New York’s most fascinating architectural enclave.


 

Description

The building is notable for its corner windows at Lafayette Street, a rooftop pergola on Bond Street and its large windows framed in a red terracotta over Corten steel façade with exterior shading blinds.  A lower level fitness center overlooks a sunken landscaped plaza.


 

Amenities

The building has a concierge, a gym and a package room.


 

Apartments

Apartment 6E is a three-bedroom unit with 98-feet of continuous glazing wall and 10-foot-10-inch-high ceilings.  The master bath is sheathed in marble slabs with custom mahogany vanity millwork, floating tub, heated floors and fixtures by Lefroy Brooks.

Apartment 3W is a 2-bedroom unit with 1,866 square feet with a large living/dining room with an open kitchen.  It has 10-foot-10-inch-high ceilings and windowed bath with 5-inch-wide solid Douglas fir floors, solid mahogany window sills, automated lighting and window shade control by Lutron, marble slab kitchen countertops and kitchen appliances by Subzero, Miele, Wolf and Gaggenau.


 

History

It and 372 Lafayette Street, also on the north side of Bond Street, are a gateway for the two-block cobblestone stretch of Bond Street that contains some very handsome older buildings such as the former Brooks Brothers Building of 1874 at 670 Broadway designed by George E. Harney and the Stephen D. Hatch Second Empire commercial building with many Corinthian cast iron columns at 1-5 Bond Street at Shinbone Alley and some spectacular and very fine modern buildings such as Herzog & de Meuron’s 40 Bond Street, BKSK’s excellent 25 Bond Street and the very sophisticated gray-brick 41 Bond Street by DDG Partners.

The site was formerly used for gasoline stations and car repair shops.

The slim, 6-story building at 372 Lafayette Street designed by Morris Adjmi is quite similar in fenestration and massing to the Selldorf building although it employs a different palette and different materials.  A previous plan by David Wallance for the site that once contained a one-

The two buildings fill in highly visible holes in the short stretch between Broadway and the Bowery that has become one of the city’s most interesting and admired architecture ensembles.
