between Prince Street & West Houston Street View Full Building Profile

Review of 151 Wooster Street by Carter Horsley

This very handsome and elegant, 8-story loft building at 151 Wooster Street between West Houston and Prince streets in SoHo was erected in 1915 and converted to 12 condominium apartments in 2007.

Alfa Development, of which Michael and Izak Namer are principals, is the developer of the project, Other projects by the Namers include the Jefferson Court Condominiums at 134 West 10th Street, 123 Sullivan Street, 136 Sullivan Street, 54 Spring Street, 65 Thompson Street, the Zachary at 125 East 12th Street and the Loft at 130 East 12th Street.

Lee H. Skolnick was the architect.

A June 3, 2007 article in The New York Times suggested that a mural uncovered during renovations on the eighth floor might have been painted, at least in part, by the late Jean-Michel Basquiat, adding that Michael Namer indicated he planned to move the work “off-site.”  The Paula Cooper Gallery was once located in the building.

Bottom Line

Vaulted ceilings with recessed lighting, large apartments with gas fireplaces, some arched windows, a rusticated base, and, voila, a very elegant condo in a prime SoHo location.


The 8-story building is south of Houston Street on an attractive cobblestone street and when the project was conceived it had no cornice but a large and handsome was added in the conversion.

The beige-brick façade has arched windows on the sixth floor and a two-story rusticated stone base with stringcourses above the second, third and seventh floors.

The building has sidewalk landscaping.


The building will have a 24-hour, doorman, concierge service, roof terrace, children’s playroom, gas fireplaces, barrel-vaulted ceilings, a fitness center, available maid service, wine cellar, and storage spaces.  


Apartments have 11-foot-high barrel-vaulted ceilings with recessed lighting, gas fireplaces, separate laundry rooms and central air-conditioning.

Italian kitchen cabinetry by EuroMobile with Miele and Liebherr appliances.
