The Sugar Warehouse Overview

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." 

The 10-story building has 34 apartments. 

It was acquired in 2000 by Alex Forkosh of Forkosh Construction and Mr. Lombardi noted that its conversion was "one of the more complex" he had ever done because its core was 10 stories tall but other parts were five or six stories. 

"All the Landmarks Preservation Commission requirements were things we wanted to do anyway, like restoring the shutters and bricks and repainting the sign and street names on the sides," Mr. Lombardi was quoted in The Times article.
