Review of 421 Hudson Street by Carter Horsley

This large and very handsome condominium apartment building at 421 Hudson Street was converted in 1979 from a commercial loft building and is known as Printing House.

Bottom Line

The building, which was erected in 1890, has 184 units, all with high ceilings and very large windows. It overlooks the James Walker Park and the very attractive 19th Century townhouses on the north side of the park on Leroy Street.


It is notable for its elegant, Italian-Renaissance-palazzo-style rustication and design.

The building has a very attractive cornice and is located on the northern end of a stretch of Hudson Street that was developed with very large and attractive industrial buildings in the early part of the 20th Century, many of them on property owned by Trinity (Episcopal) Church.

This is the most handsome of such buildings and, along with the Archive Building a few blocks to the north at 666 Greenwich Street, was one of the earliest and most important residential conversions of large commercial structures.


It has a 24-hour doorman, a concierge, a health club and pool, a sundeck, video security, available housekeeping and valet service and it permits pets.


The building is two blocks from the Hudson River at the southern fringe of the West Village and the Western fringe of SoHo.

There are many restaurants in this popular area.
