This very handsome, 16-story condominium building was erected in 2003 and has 33 apartments.

Robert Siegel of Ghent Realty Services Inc. was the developer.

BKSK was the architectural firm and Alan Wanzenberg designed the interiors.

Bottom Line

It is perhaps the nicest "Post-Modern" structure built in the city, because it applies the large industrial building style of the 1920s and 1930s in the city to a new residential project and does so with a fine sense of proportion and good materials. It pays very good homage to many of its surrounding buildings and in fact is better looking than the excellent residential conversion of the adjacent building to its east, 145 Hudson Street.

Description

The orange-brick building has dark-green window sashes and some arched windows on the 5th, 9th and 13th floors. It has a two-story limestone base and the top two floors have corner windows.

What is most distinctive about this project are the large multi-paned windows, typical of old factory facilities but rarely so clean and neat. Multi-pane windows are especially attractive on masonry façades, as here, and far too many fine pre-war residential buildings in the city have been somewhat "ruined" by installations of large, single-pane windows that may seem more "modern" from the inside, but are totally out of keeping with the original architecture.

 

Amenities

The building has a doorman, a concierge, a health club, private storage, a nursery, a bicycle room and several terraces. It is pet friendly but has no balconies, no roof deck, no garage and no sidewalk landscaping.

Apartments

Apartments have large, multi-paned windows, high ceilings, eat-in kitchens and central air-conditioning.

There are some arched windows.

Apartment 11B is a four-bedroom unit with a 13-foot-wide entrance gallery that leads past a 22-foot-long enclosed kitchen to a 30-foot-long corner living/dining room.

Apartment 4A is a three-bedroom unit that has a long entrance gallery that leads to a very large great room with an open kitchen and a very large terrace.

Apartment 6B is a four-bedroom unit with a 7-foot-long foyer that leads to a 14-foot-long gallery in one direction that opens onto a 30-foot-long living room and an 18-foot-long dining room and a 19-foot-long library, and a 13-foot-long gallery in another direction that leads to two bedrooms.  There are 17-foot-long terraces on either side of the living room.

Penthouse B has a long gallery that opens onto a 32-foot-long living room that opens onto an 18-foot-long den and a 23-foot-long dining room next to an 18-foot-long open kitchen with an island.  The apartment has three bedrooms and a second den.

Apartment 7E  has a 8-foot-long foyer that leads to a 17-foot-long gallery that opens onto a 27-foot- long great room with a 17-foot-long open kitchen with an island.  There are 17-foot-long terraces on either side of the great room and three bedrooms.

Location

It is on the east side of the two-block-long Collister Street and across Hubert Street from an old 3-story industrial building that has a cartouche with a dog and is emblazoned with the name "American Express."

The building is near Hudson Square, a large open area that is part of the approaches and exits to the Holland Tunnel, which is several blocks to the north.

The building, which has high ceilings and five setbacks with terraces, but no sidewalk landscaping, is in the heart of TriBeCa North, a neighborhood with many very handsome residential conversions of former industrial properties.

It is only two blocks away from the Hudson River. This area is also not far from SoHo and the civic center.
