Review of 42 Crosby Street by Carter Horsley

This sleek and shiny, 7-story apartment building at 42 Crosby Street on the northwest corner at Broome Street in SoHo was completed in 2016 and has ten condominium apartments.

It was built by the Atlas Capital Group and designed by Annabelle Selldorf, whose other residential projects include 200 Eleventh Avenue and 10 Bond Street.

The first plan for the building presented to a landmarks committee of Community Board 2 called for a 5-story base with a setback 4-story tower, a scheme that was ultimately revised at the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission for the present, lower design.

The building has some ground-floor retail space.

Bottom Line

Like a silver bracelet on the white painted cast-iron frame of SoHo classic architecture this modest but deluxe and elegant stainless-steel-clad building sticks out like a white tux at a black-tie soiree but your ’mobile can be discretely tucked away in its million-dollar parking spaces in the basement.


With admirable floor-to-ceiling windows framed in stainless steel, this mid-rise building gives off elegant steam on a hot corner in SoHo, styled with miminal splendor by Annabelle Selldorf. 

For a reported million dollars you can drive into the building’s porte-corchere and have the car whisked to its dedicated parking space while you ogle the lobby’s terranium designed by Paula Hayes.

The building has a nice and sophisticated but minimal cornice.


The building has a 24-hour attended lobby, a courtyard with a Norway maple tree, a car elevator and garage where parking spaces were priced at $1 million, storage, cold storage and a terrarium art installation by Paula Hayes in the lobby.


Apartments have floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors in their main rooms and washers and dryers.

They have stainless steel Boffi kitchens with Bardiglio and Thassos marble and terrazzo floors and ash plank flooring.

The 5,852-square-foot penthouse is a five-bedroom duplex with a 9-foot-wide entry foyer on the upper level that has a 4,024-square-foot wraparound terrace and which leads to a 30-foot-long living room that opens in one direction onto a 17-foot-wide library and in the other direction onto an 18-foot-wide dining room next to a 14-foot-long, open kitchen with an island vestibule that leads to a 21-foot-wide family room and an enclosed 7-foot-wide kitchenette and a bedroom.  The lower level has four bedrooms, a 21-foot-long family room, a 13-foot-wide media room/gym and a 7-foot-long kitchenette.  An article by Rachel Sugar in the September 26, 2016 edition of reported that this unit was in contract for $25 million.

Apartment 3S is a 3,299-square-foot, three-bedroom unit with a 9-foot-wide vestibule that leads to a 19-foot-long entry foyer that leads past a 16-foot-long open kitchen with an  island next to a 22-foot-wide dining room and an adjoining 21-foot-wide living room.

Apartment 6N is a two-bedroom unit with a long entry foyer that leads a 29-foot-wide living room with a fireplace and a 24-foot-wide study/guest room and an open 17-foot-long, windowed kitchen with an island and an L-shaped, narrow terrace overlooking the building’s courtyard.
