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.

Carter Horsley's Review of 285 Lafayette Street

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."
