Review of 53 Greene Street by Carter Horsley

This handsome, 6-story, mid-block, cast-iron building at 53 Greene Street has fire escapes and a spectacular duplex penthouse.

It has five condominium apartments and the 1900 building was converted to a condominium in 2014.

ADRE is the developer.

RSVP Architecture and N-Plus Architecture and Design were the architects.

Bottom Line

A luxurious cast-iron building with a Tuckahoe marble façade on Greene Street in SoHo with a very modern, setback penthouse.


The 35-foot-wide building has fire escapes and refurbished cast-iron sidewalk vault lights with bullet glass.


The building has a virtual doorman, a bicycle room, fireplaces, storage and in-unit washers and dryers.


Full-floor apartments have 13-foot-high ceilings, gas fireplaces, private elevator access and a water filtration system.

The duplex penthouse has 3,510 square feet and three bedrooms and a 2,067 square feet of exterior space.  The lower level has a 20-foot-long living room and a 7-foot-wide vestibule and the upper level has a large dining room with an open, pass-through kitchen and very large private  roof decks.

The full-floor residences have 2,771-square-feet and two bedrooms and an 11-foot-high Alaskan  white and ballistic grey kitchen cabinetry, Gaggenau double ovens, gas cooktops, teppanyaki grills, wine coolers and Miele refrigerators.  Bathrooms have Calacatta Michael Angelo marble slab walls, flooring and countertops. The 23-foot-long living room has a fireplace and adjoins the open 19-foot-long dining room next to the 16-foot-long, open kitchen with an island.
