The Dominick, 246 Spring Street: Review and Ratings

between Varick Street & Sixth Avenue View Full Building Profile

Carter Horsley
Review of 246 Spring Street by Carter Horsley

The reflective, glass-clad, 46-story Dominick (originally known as Trump Soho) at 246 Spring Street is one of the tallest buildings between Midtown and Lower Manhattan. 

Completed in 2009, it has 391 condominium apartments. 

Handel Architects LLP served as the architectural firm for the project. 

The Rockwell Group designed the interiors. 

The building is also known as 9-19 Dominick Street and 134-136 Varick Street.

Bottom Line

Close to the Hudson River, this handsome full-service skyscraper is a condo-hotel hybrid in SoHo that commands sensational views and is convenient to the boutiques of SoHo and the restaurants of TriBeCa and the West Village.

The project has frontage on Spring, Varick and Dominick Streets and is not far from the Holland Tunnel and the Hudson River Park.


The sleek and glossy glass-clad design is not dissimilar to International Hotel & Tower at 1 Central Park West and Drumpf World on First Avenue at 47th Street. 

The plan of the tower is a slightly bent long rectangle.


The project has an outdoor swimming pool on the top floor of its five-story base, a Cornelia Spa, 24-hour in-room dining, The Library with books by Taschen, which has a lovely bookstore nearby, valet parking, baby-sitting services, 24-hour doormen, a business center, meeting rooms, overnight laundry and dry cleaning, personal shopping, and a restaurant and a nightclub.


The guest rooms and suites have furnishings by Fendi Casa. The guest rooms range from 422 to 540 square feet and the 132-one-bedroom suites range from 682 to 905 square feet.

Purchase price of the rooms includes furnishings designed by David Rockwell of The Rockwell Group, with units equipped with "leather-cushioned custom designed beds with full-height headboard," marble flooring in entryways, two-person tubs and separate glass-enclosed showers, "a bar area set in contemporary wood-veneer cabinets," "discreet appliances," and "the latest technology is also included with a flat-screen television, DVD and CD players and connections for high-speed Internet access." 

Residences also have private locked closets to keep personal belongings between stays and a safe. Amenities include 24-hour room service, access to the fitness center and space, and "may also enjoy evening turndown service, garment care" and concierge service. 

Baths are marble-clad and have Egyptian cotton bedding and towels, spa toiletries, and flat-screen televisions. 

There are 10 penthouse units including a duplex suite with a terrace. 

Apartments have floor-to-ceiling windows, Bellino Italian linens, fully-stocked mini-bars, three dual-line telephones and Nespresso coffee makers. 

The units do not have cooking facilities.

Studio Suite 1 on floors 9 through 42 have an entry foyer that leads to a 16-foot-long guest room with a wet bar and a 15-foot-long bath. 

Studio Suite 12 has a long entry foyer with a wet bar that opens into a 15-foot-wide guest room with a 14-foot-wide bath. 

Deluxe Suite 7 has a long foyer that leads to a 18-foot-long living room with a powder room, a 12-foot-wide guest room and a 16-foot-wide bath. 

Deluxe Suite 10 on the 8th and 9th floors and 21st and 22nd floors and 33rd and 34th floors has a foyer that leads to a 17-foot-long living room with a wet bar, a 13-foot-long guest room and a 16-foot-long bath. 

Penthouse 4405 has an entry foyer that opens into a 26-foot-wide living room with a wet bar, two bedrooms, two baths and a powder room.


The property, which was acquired in September, 2005, by Bayrock/Sapir LLC, a partnership of the Bayrock Group, Tamir Sapir and Donald Drumpf, had been a parking lot and apparently several decades before it had been the site of a Presbyterian Church.
