52 Lispenard Street: Review and Ratings

Carter Horsley
Review of 52 Lispenard Street by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of CityRealty.com.
 

The two small buildings at 52 and 54 Lispenard Street in TriBeCa have been combined by developer Murat Bugdaycay to create seven condominium apartments.

His proposal to demolish one of the buildings was rejected by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission but it approved a later plan to add three stories to the shorter of the two buildings.  The shorter building lost three floors in a fire. The commission termed the plan by Studio F Design “a worthy riff on cast iron.”

The buildings were in the TriBeCa East Historic District.

Bottom Line

By combining and expanding two mid-block TriBeCa buildings, this project offers very large residences with high ceilings in a prime neighborhood.

Description

The original cast-iron façade of 54 Lispenard was being restored and heavy gauge steel was applied over stucco for the enlargement of 52 Lispenard with setback windows within sloping metal panels.  New storefronts with steps of vaulted lights have been given to both buildings.

The penthouses of both buildings are setback with the one at 54 Lispenard getting a hip-roofed addition in zinc and stucco and the other getting a darker stucco.

There are arched windows on the second floor at 52 Lispenard.

Amenities

The project has a part-time doorman.

Apartments

Apartments have fireplaces by Hearth Cabinet, 8-inch Italian white oak plank floors, solid wood lacquered doors, LED lighting, 4-zone Mitsubishi heating and cooling, motorized window treatments and laundry rooms.

Kitchens have Gaggenau refrigerators and ovens and Bianco Borealist countertops and backsplaches.

Unit 4 is a five-bedroom residence with 3,341 square feet and a 91-square foot balcony.  It has a 12-foot-long entry foyer that leads to a 33-foot-wide living room adjoining a 24-foot-wide kitchen/dining area.  It has ceiling heights of up to 10 feet 4 inches.

Unit 2 is a four-bedroom residence with 3,804 square feet with a 10-foot-long entry foyer that leads to a 33-foot-wide living/dining room adjacent to a 24-foot-wide kitchen with an island and a 12-foot-long home office.  It has ceiling heights of 11 feet 11 inches and a 25-foot-long skylight.
