This new building at the corner of Bleecker and Mulberry Streets has 61 luxury residential units ranging from one bedrooms units to five bedroom penthouses with retail spaces on the ground floor.
Taking cues from its historic surroundings, the building emphasizes the depth of the façade to create a sense of timelessness while using a modern vocabulary. The modulating rhythm of the grid and gentle curve of the façade are clean and minimal, speaking to the aesthetics of today. The windows are generous and proportionally scaled to the rooms they serve, inviting a balance of light and privacy. At the interior of the building, no two units are completely alike, creating a living experience that feels personalized, authentic, and modern.
The penthouse levels, each set back from the one below, are integral to the character of the building. Employing a technique used in many tiered Art Deco skyscrapers, the top of the building is sculpted by dramatic terraces which wrap along its two street frontages at each of the three top floors. The terraces differentiate the top of the building from the base, allowing it to be less formal while relating to the sky and views.
The project takes advantage of a merged zoning lot to maximize floor area for the developer. Amenities include a swimming pool, garden, exercise room and parking garage.
