This handsome, 19-story apartment building at 91 Leonard Street was erected in 2018 by Toll Brothers City Living, whose other projects include 1110 Park Avenue, the Touraine on the southeast corner of 65th Street and Lexington Avenue, 121 East 22nd Street and 303 East 33rd Street and 400 Park Avenue South.

This building contains 112 condominium units and about 12,000 square feet of commercial space.

It has been designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Hill & West.

Enea was the landscape architect.

Occupancy is slated for 2019.

Bottom Line

A handsome but bulky and almost bloated, mid-rise, mid-block building with many amenities on Lower Broadway with a very attractive façade reminiscent of the better proportioned Seagram building that has a large plaza and no setbacks.

Description

According to an August 2, 2017 article at CityRealty.com, Toll Brothers believes the building will “convey a feeling of refined luxury infused with an industrial spirit.”

The building is setback at the above the 13th floor and it has windows on its north façade over a 5-story building on Broadway whose air rights the developers had acquired.

The building has a very handsome dark bronze-color façade reminiscent of the Seagram Building in tone with two-window bays highlighted by protruding terracotta fins and lintels and separated from adjoining bays with recessed dark panels.  The windows are nearly floor-to-ceiling and the fenestration panel is continued on the exposed section of the north façade.

The proportions of this building are not divine and a bit robust and bulky in comparison with the Seagram Building.

The double-height lobby has a tortoise-shell marble feature wall behind the concierge station

Amenities

The building has a roof deck with grills and an outdoor fireplace, a lounge with fireplace and garden access, a 60-foot-long pool, a fitness center, a screening room, bicycle storage, a 24-hour attended lobby, and a children’s playroom.

History

After decades of family ownership, Alan S. Cohen and Adam Maxson of ABS Partners sold the development site at 353 and 355-357 Broadway between Leonard and Franklin streets to Toll Brothers in 2015.

The $73 million price-tag included the air rights from No. 359, which the family is retaining. It was the family’s first building and, in 1853, the site of Civil War photographer Matthew Brady’s studio.
