The Egyptian limestone façade of the lower six-floors of this 8-story residential condominium building at 25 Bond Street is extremely appealing not only because of its tactile surface and brightness but also because of its syncopated rhythms and depths.

The building was developed by Goldman Properties, which is headed by Tony Goldman, who owns several prominent buildings in nearby SoHo as well as South Beach in Miami.

This building was designed by BKSK, which has designed several of TriBeCa's most distinguished recent residential projects including the Hubert at 7 Hubert Street and the Duane Park Building at 166 Duane Street.

It has only 9 apartments.

Bottom Line

25 Bond Street is a stunning and very distinctive residential building with 89-foot-long entertaining spaces and four fireplaces per apartment on a fabulous cobblestone street.

Description

The top two floors are setback on Bond Street and are not faced with limestone, nor is the rear of the building, which overlooks its large rear garden.

The Bond Street façade looks like a stack of keyboards, or a reconstructed deconstructed Greek temple, formal and classic.  Because of its asymmetrical fenestration pattern, it also conjures an abacus.

The building uses two types of stone to create a double layer screen wall of varying widths and irregular separations that is front of a bronze and glass wall with floor-to-ceiling sliding sections.

The rear of the building has a large garden that opens onto an alley to a street.

Mr. Goldman commissioned Ken Hiratsuka, a Japanese sculptor, Ken Hiratsuka, to create a work on the granite sidewalk in front of the building and to create a sculpture for the lobby.

Amenities

25 Bond Street has two parking spaces per resident as well as a 24-hour concierge, a garden with community outdoor grilling, a caterer’s kitchen service, individual lobby storage spaces, and direct elevator access.

It also has a rooftop deck, a business meeting room, a library, a health club, and a bicycle room.

Apartments

The apartments feature enormous entertaining spaces: a media/office space is open to the living room that is open to a dining room in an 89-foot-wide space, much of which is 30-feet deep, with only three free-standing columns.  At either end of this extraordinary space, which fronts on Bond Street, are fireplaces.

The entry is into a long private vestibule, at one end of which is a “mud room and laundry” and the other is a hall way leading to the entertaining spaces to the north and the four bedrooms, office, and family room/guest room.  The large master bedroom and family room/guest room both have fireplaces and balconies and the apartment has a very large kitchen.

Apartments have 10-foot-6-inch ceilings with 9-foot-6-inch sliding window walls.

History

Tony Goldman bought the site from Tribeach Holdings, the developer of 129 Lafayette Street, for $26 million.  Tribeach had planned a building with 48 apartments.

Mr. Goldman initially planned a new building with 23 apartments but then changed it to 12 and then 9 apartments, including a triplex and a duplex, each with a private rooftop pool.

The building was one of 19 residential developments honored by the American Institute of Architects in 2008.
