The Textile Building at 66 Leonard Street: Review and Ratings

Review of 66 Leonard Street by Carter Horsley

This handsome building in TriBeCa was designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh and built in 1901, several years before the architect would design the Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue.

It is known as the Textile Building and was converted in 1999 to 46 residential condominiums by Chessed LLC, of which Yitzchak Tessler is managing partner.

The conversion, which was designed by Karl Fischer, added a penthouse floor. Jay Valgora, a principal at the Walker Group/CNI, designed the common areas.

The building has a garden, a rooftop terrace with a children's play area, a fitness center, a bicycle room, a media room and an on-site 50-car garage with attended parking.

Apartments have fireplaces and individually controlled heating and air-conditioning.

The residential building includes displays of antique American textiles and materials associated with the textile industry. The elevator doors are embossed with a weaving machine motif.

The building is in the TriBeCa East Historic District, which was designated in 1992.

There are six representations of Caduceus, the winged staff entwined by a pair of snakes on the building's façades as well as 8 large cartouches.

In 2004, Jean-Georges Vongerichten sold his apartment in the building to Hiromi Go, a Japanese pop star, for about $3,250,000. Mr. Vongerichten had paid $2,620,000 for it in April, 2001.
