This TriBeCa building at 7 Harrison Street on the northwest corner at Hudson Street is an extremely handsome, 8-story, red-brick building that was built in 1893 as a commercial warehouse and converted residentially in 2014.      

The building, which is at the north end of Staple Street, has 12 units.

Matrix Development LLC and Clarion Partners are the developers.  Matrix also developed the Urban Glass House designed by Philip Johnson in SoHo and the rental building at 19-23 St. Marks Place.

Steven Harris and DXA Studio are the architects. 

Rees Roberts + Partners are the interior designers.


Bottom Line

A very elegant and impressive residential conversion at a prime TriBeCa location on a cobblestone street with excellent layouts.



The conversion is extended the building’s very attractive cornice the full length of its frontage of Staple Street and removing its fire-escapes on Harrison Street.

The building has a rusticated stone base on Hudson Street and very handsome window surrounds on the second and sixth floors.  The fifth floor has arched windows at the top of three-story high inset bays.  There are centered, dentilated bandcourses beneath the 3rd and 6th floor windows on Hudson Street and partially on Harrison Street.  There is a bandcourse above the sixth floor that extends partially around the Hudson Street corner and there is a light and smaller bandcourse above the 7th floor that extends fully on Hudson and Harrison Streets.



The building has a 24-hour attended lobby, a fitness center and a bicycle room.



Apartments have plaster cornices, 5-inch wide plant rift and quartered oak floors, flush millwork, custom recessed-panel doors with Nanz polished nickel hardware and recessed halogen lighting.

The main level of the three-bedroom duplex atelier unit has a 9-foot-long entry foyer that leads to a 23-foot-long, double-height salon with a gas fireplace convertible to wood-burning, staircase and a 24-foot-wide garden and a 29-foot wide parlor with an open kitchen with an island. 

The duplex penthouse has three-bedrooms and 10-foot-high ceilings, a 32-foot-long living/dining room with two exposures, and a windowed kitchen with a breakfast area with banquette seating.

Apartment 5N is a three-bedroom unit with a 26-foot-long entrance gallery that leads to a 31-foot-long living/dining room  adjacent to an enclosed, 23-foot-lomg kitchen with a dining banquette that opens to the living/dining room.
