Carter Horsley's Review of The Sugar Warehouse

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The Sugar Warehouse at 79 Laight Street on the southwest corner of West Street in TriBeCa was built in 1853 by the Grocers Steam Sugar Refining Company and later sold to the United States Sugar Refining Company. 

According to Joseph Pell Lombardi, the architect involved in this impressive project's 2002 restoration and conversion to condominium apartments, this 10-story building was one of the tallest in the city when it was built. In a March 15, 2002 article by Nadine Brozan in The New York Times, Mr. Lombardi, one of the city’s most active converters, was quoted as saying "It was tall and proud on the skyline, one of our more important buildings." " Read Carter's Full Review
