    Default 48 Bond Street - NoHo - by Deborah Berke & Partners Architects

    curbed has a rendering of a new building at 48 Bond in NoHo -- which was previously reported by boweryboy back in December in the New development on the Bowery thread; boweryboy's post is HERE ...

    48 Bond St

    Just a couple of buildings west of Bowery a new building is coming to Bond St. They have poured the foundation and that's about it. Here is where the site will be: http://www.48bond.com/ ...
    Development Du Jour: 48 Bond

    Wednesday, January 17, 2007, by BL



    Forget West Chelsea. When construction finally finishes up on Bond Street in Noho, it might just be the city's most interesting block in terms of its traditional/modern architecture mix. This here is new development 48 Bond, currently rising on what was until last year an empty lot a few doors down from the (far more ballyhooed) 40 Bond. The developer had originally comissioned a design by architect Marvin Meltzer, but scuttled those plans and moved ahead instead with architect Deborah Berke, her first residential condo project. Berke explains, in a press release sent our way by alert publicists: "The façade of 48 Bond is an elegant composition of slabs of granite and sheets of glass. The scale of the material is unusually large, contributing to its abstract and bold quality. The stone and glass play off each other and accentuate their contrasting textures."

    Marketing materials indicate that the 11-story, 14-unit building, with apartments starting at $2 million, are already on the market, but 48 Bond's official website teases us with a "Coming January 27" tagline. So coy.



    ***

    One commenter at curbed offers a sly 2 cents ...
    These 2 building s on either side are tasteless trash compared to the sleek glass facade of 48 bonds. Just imagine, someone trying to recreate 20s architecture? They don't even appear as authentic, they are detracting from 48 bonds and these two eyesores stand out like sore thumbs compared with 48 bonds. These should have been more contextual with 48 bonds. What was the builder of thsoe 2 isores thinking? I'm leaving this town. Iv'e had enough!!

    A short while back I had posted THIS on the building just to the east at 50 Bond ...

    Looking at the rendering above of 48 Bond no wonder someone is trying to bail out of the Penthouse at 50 Bond (on the market for ~ $7M) -- maybe they want to get out before the new Deborah Berke designed Penthouses begin to loom over its terrace-in-the-sky (aka the Dairy Queen in the Clouds) ...

    That photo doesn't look like 11 stories as the text claimed.

    NoHo news reports 12 stories with retail on the ground floor which is also different.

    I was starting to wonder if this was a photo for the rejected plan but it seems to mirror what is on 48bond.com

    So, I wonder what they are actually building

    Looks like 8 stories on the main base section and 3 stories above ...

    Stopped by the place last night. It is going to be marketed by Stirbling.

    According to City Realty, the principle is going to be taking the (a?) triplex penthouse for himself.

    48 Bond Update:
    10' High Flamed-Granite, Dammit!

    curbed.com
    Thursday, January 18, 2007, by BL



    Yesterday's Development Du Jour, 48 Bond, came in for some abuse in the comment thread. Decried one commenter, "The building would look better if the windows weren't all flush, so there was some light and shadow. Look at the light and shadow at the buildings to each side. Now look at the light and shadow in the new building. Boring."

    In response, a tipster sends along the above close-up rendering of the facade, noting, "There seems to be confusion on your comments board about the facade of 48 Bond. Since you got the scoop on the upcoming marketing campaign, I thought I'd share the best image from the project. The glass and granite are all flush except for several canted windows. The slabs of flamed-granite will be up to 10' high."
    Now you know!

    are canted windows what we agents call "tip'n'tilts?"

    They're all the rage in Tribeca loft renovations -- easy to clean. (I sit in a prewar where I've been trying to get the historic windows cleaned for years).

    Plus, they're easy to "guard" -- if you have kids under 10, you have to implement safety measures so they don't fall out the windows, and most people hate the "grill" look of traditional window guards.

    The canted windows at 48 Bond will be permanently atilt ... ...

    The windows you describe are only in that position when you open them.

    Ok, am I being dumb? How does the heat stay in? Are they shaped like wedges with the thick edge on the bottom?

    lol ^^^

    The windows are structurally set at an angle -- solid triangular pieces on the sides / flat rectangular piece on the bottom.

    Weird little angle at the bottom where the out-set window meets the floor -- great for trapping dust, but beyond that what's the point?

    From http://cityrealty.com/new_developments:

    Granite facade at 48 Bond Street will have slanted windows 17-JAN-07



    The design by Deborah Berke & Partners Architects LLP for the planned 11-story residential condominium building at 48 Bond Street will incorporate some windows that slant downwards and project outwards from the facade.

    Construction is now underway at the site where Dabon LLC, of which Donald Capoccia is a principal, plans to create 17 apartments, three of which he will keep as a triplex penthouse for himself.

    David Gross of GF55 is the executive architect and Romy Goldman of Gold Development is the development manager.

    The building, which is on a cobblestone street, will have a 7-story base with a dark granite facade and the upper floors are setback and have floor-to-ceiling windows. The building will have a large swimming pool in the basement with a high, undulating ceiling. Prices are anticipated to begin at about $2 million and the building is expected to be completed by about the end of the year.

    The building will have an entrance marquee. It is a few feet to the east of 40 Bond Street, another new residential condominium project whose facade on Bond Street has recently been enclosed although not yet finished with the curved green glass elements designed by Herzog & de Meuron for the developer, Ian Schrager.

    Another large new project on the same cobblestone block, 25 Bond Street, is entirely wrapped in shrouds.

    The site at 48 Bond Street had been used as a parking lot and storage yard for Great Jones Lumber Yard and it is not far from the handsome and curved residential condominium building at 57 Bond Street on the southwest corner at The Bowery that was recently completed.

    Deborah Berke designed the recently opened Marianne Boesky Gallery in Chelsea next to the High Line and the 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.

    A previous design by Marvin Meltzer for the site for the developer contained 29 apartments.

    I really like this building, especially how it looks in that^ rendering. It's contextual alright, but it's got its own identity.

    In a couple of years (maybe after they get around to re-laying the Belgian block streetbed) this block will be quite the swanky spot.
