Description

This 8-story residential condominium at 158 Hester Street on the southeast corner at Mott Street in Chinatown is known as Hester Gardens and has 61 apartments.

It was developed by Well-Come Holdings LLC and designed by Peter Poon.

A September 17, 2006 article in The New York Times by Vivian S. Toy quoted Shing Wah Yeung, a Well-Come Holdings vice president, as stating that "many buyers learned about the building by word of mouth," adding that "Chinatown is a different animal compared to the rest of Manhattan; it many ways it s an easier market to target than the mainstream."

Well-Come had previously built the 11-story, 81-unit residential condominium building in 2004 at 148 Madison Street next to the Manhattan Bridge.

Hester Gardens has a 24-hour doorman and a common landscaped courtyard on the second floor and a garage. Apartments have 9-foot ceilings and washer and dryer hookups and stainless steel kitchen appliances. Bathrooms have Carrara marble baths and Toto wash closets.

The building, which also has an address of 106-114 Mott Street, is one-block north of Canal Street and eight subways stop within six blocks.

It is convenient not only to Chinatown, but also SoHo and Little Italy.
