505 Greenwich Street: Review and Ratings

between Canal Street & Spring Street View Full Building Profile

Carter Horsley
Review of 505 Greenwich Street by Carter Horsley

This modern, 14-story condominium apartment building at 505 Greenwich Street in SoHo was erected in 2004 and has 102 units.

It was designed by Gary Handel & Associates and developed by the Metropolitan Housing Partnership and the Synchron Corporation.

It has 104 apartments.

Bottom Line

Sleek but understated modernity in the midst of an older warehouse district that is convenient to TriBeCa and SoHo art galleries and restaurants and not fare from the Holland Tunnel 


The building has a sleek glass curtain wall on Greenwich Street and is just to the north of another very modern project at 497 Greenwich Street. The latter project is smaller and also incorporates the façade of an older warehouse building, but is notable for the rippling and cascading glass façade of its newer section.

Although the projects were erected at about the same time and both use blue-tinted glass, albeit of different shades, they were developed separately. Winka Dubbeldam, the principal of Archi-Tectonics, is the architect of 497 Greenwich Street.


The building has a 24-hour concierge, a fitness center, a pet spa, a bicycle room, storage for each unit, a private courtyard, wine refrigerators, and mahogany flooring. There are 25 three-bedroom units, 42 two-bedroom units and 37 one-bedroom units. 


Each apartment has a washer and dryer.

Kitchens feature Sub-Zero refrigerators, Bosch dishwashers, Viking stainless steel ranges, custom Tanzanian Anigre wood cabinetry and gray Slate countertops, Italian green glass backsplashes, as well as microwave ovens and wine refrigerators.

The master bathrooms Pietra Bedonia marble floors and surrounds, cherry cabinets, and deep soaking tubs by Kohler, in addition to shower stalls in select homes.

Apartment 12A is a two-bedroom unit with an entry foyer that leads past a 15-foot-long   second bedroom with sliding doors to a 21-foot-long living room next to an enclosed kitchen.

Apartment 1A has a 25-foot-long living room with an open kitchen, a 13-foot-long home office/den, two bedrooms and a 29-foot-long garden.

Apartment 3A has an entrance fall that leads to a 21-foot-long living room with an open kitchen and two bedrooms.

Apartment 4D is a three-bedroom unit with a long entrance hall that leads to a 29-foot-long living room with an open kitchen and island.


This area is known as Hudson Square and is west of SoHo. It used to be a center for commercial printing.



The building is convenient to TriBeCa and the Hudson River Park and there are subways nearby as well as numerous restaurants and art galleries.

It is interesting to note that the building to the south of 497 on the same block has been nicely renovated with some modern touches at the Canal Street corner and that another small building on the same block but on the other side of Greenwich Street has been remodeled with a very handsome multi-paned fenestration. As a result, this block is one of the most interesting in the city.
