Description

Originally constructed in 1912, 285 Lafayette Street was subsequently converted into 31 apartments. The property also contains 30,000 square feet of retail space currently occupied by the New York Public Library and Ralph Lauren.

There are four apartments on each of its first six floors. Residences include eight penthouses with wood-burning fireplaces and have 26-foot-high ceilings. Apartments also feature hardwood flooring, polished nickel vanities, wine coolers, terraces, elaborate kitchens and master bathrooms with six-foot-long bathtubs.

285 Lafayette Street, which has a rooftop garden and an 800-square-foot lobby with a 10-foot-long white onyx countertop, is partly famous for its celebrity residents including David Bowie and his wife Iman. It is surrounded by boutiques, restaurants and excellent public transportation and is also just south of the famed Puck Building on the southeast corner of Houston Street. It also has a full-time doorman and concierge service.

Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The large and impressive, 10-story-high building at 285 Lafayette Street between Jersey and Prince Streets in SoHo has a very handsome red-brick base with two-story high rusticated limestone piers with a two-story rooftop expansion that is mostly setback.

The developers of the conversion of this former commercial building spent about three years geting approvals from the City Planning Commission to remap the site and to add four flours to the existing six-story, non-fireproof building.  The solution was to erect a fireproof building over the non-fireproof structure."
