Description

Medium Lipstick Building is a pre-war builing in Tribeca finished in 1890. It served as a spice storage warehouse before its conversion to an 8-story, 14-unit cooperative.

The lobby has been updated with keyless entry and video security, and the building is topped with a roof deck with gas grill, seating areas, and views of the Hudson River and Lower Manhattan skyline. Situated at 288 West Street, between Watts Street and Canal Street, it is close to the best shopping, dining, and transportation that Soho, Tribeca, Hudson Square, and Battery Park City have to offer. Hudson River Park is practically right out the front door.
