Thread: 25 Bond - NoHo - Condo - by BKSK Architects

    Default I like the treatment, scale of the piers is too big for the facade

    I think if the piers were 75% as wide the design would be stronger. It might be a bit much for that street. 40 Bond is a quiet very modern facade that blends in nicely (have yet to see the grafitti gate however), this seems like the facade meant for a building at least twice its size. Will have to check out in person.

    Nice to see the use of stone and not another glass box.

    Wait a few weeks before making a special trip down there to check it out -- the sidewalk shed is still up and usually closed off with plywood doors -- I just lucked out that the doors were open when I passed by.

    6/23: This building is perfectly contextual.

    I like this one. This block has undergone a very nice transformation. High end, but not out of control.

    ^ On its way to being one of the city's best blocks, isn't it?

    I'd live there in a minute.

    So how come this street is turning out so well, when so many others don't?

    A fortuitous combination of zoning and enlightened developers?

    If the answer were known, the conditions could be recreated elsewhere.

    Existing buildings all along the block that are pretty top notch.

    3 very good sized parking lots.

    The entire block is practically surrounded by Historic Districts (Noho to the North and West and South; Soho a bit farther South and West).

    One edge of the block is on The Bowery, which in its nasty rundown state served for years to scare away the more mundane middle-priced developers and left the lots fallow and available for the bigger (and clearly smarter) investors.

    The absolute insanity of the NY real estate market coupled with the great value of the dollar to foreign investors.

    Hedge Funds.

    All that together certainly contributed.

    It is sort of a diamond in the rough, and a delightfully surprising one at that.

    Next up: 19th street between West Side Highway and 10th Avenue.

    From the NoHo News website ...


    ... 25 Bond ... there will be a full 100 running feet of granite sidewalk, artist- etched and continuing into the main lobby. There is no doubt that Goldman Properties has taken contextual to heart and new heights.

    More Bondage: 25 Bond Unbound

    CURBED
    September 12, 2007

    NoHo's Bond Street has been buzzing lately. Last week, we had the unlocking
    of Ian Shrager's gated 40 Bond. Not to mention all that wonkiness bursting forth below
    the homely Penthouse at 48 Bond. And now, at big 25 Bond just across the way,
    the sidewalk shed has finally been carted off. What has been revealed is both strong and
    elegant. An imposing place that whispers, "Cross this threshold and we'll crush you."
    So much for the welcome wagon.

    Bond Street just keeps on giving. Today, we've got a little place downtown
    where you can rest your head at 25 Bond. For a mere $60,000 a month we
    give you a dazzling duplex penthouse. This one, with 8,000+ square feet,
    goes way beyond the Double Dipper we showed you last spring: Four fireplaces.
    A rooftop hot tub. Egyptian Limestone. Hand-rubbed Venetian Bronze.
    Ye gads!!! We're hoping we didn't throw away all that crazy coinage the
    25 Bond gang was sending out a few months back, because we'll be needing
    that spare change to get our foot in these big bronze doors.


    The main level, where two of those four fireplaces can be found


    On this floor is the soaking tub - and the other two fireplaces


    Up on the roof: terraces, a hot tub and lots of sky - but surprisingly no fireplace

    And finally, in case you're curious, here's a partial list of goodies that come with this
    7th Floor duplex penthouse. Where else downtown is anyone offering a manicured
    urban lawn complete with an "outdoor grilling ensemble"?

    Magnificent. This street was one of my favourites in New York before they put these buildings up...I can't believe they managed to enhance it!
