A Downtown Residential Project. Co-developed by Cape Advisors Inc. and Andre Balazs.
Designed by Richard Gluckman.
Experience a unique reinterpretation on "Loft" lifestyle and residential architecture poised between the neighborhoods of Soho and Nolita.
The 11-story undulating curved tower is a testament to harmonized form and function. Noted Architect, Richard Gluckman has designed the
interiors that carry through the same precepts of movement, contrast and texture of this building he created. The finishes consist of solid ash
wood flooring, oversized windows, and 10' ceilings. White carrera marble counters and back splashes are highlighted with gray lacquered
cabinets and white laminated glass fronts. The master baths boast over-sized soaking tubs and separate showers highlighted with Blue de
Savioe marble and white lacquered cabinets, inverting the color motif in the kitchen which includes stainless steel European appliances.
Additionally, there is a 24-hour concierge, a fully equipped gym, and the convenience of an on-site building manager. The units range from
460 Sq. Ft. to 2,700 Sq. Ft. in a variety of floor plans.
Starting from the $600,000's to $6,000,000.

"More information is pouring in on Andre Balazs' proposed condominium project that includes an 11-story apartment building on Lafayette Street and a 6-story apartment building on Crosby.
According to sources, there will also be a commercial space on the ground floor.
"The new building will fill in an unattractive gap (an existing parking lot) in the street front along Lafayette Street and provide a beacon at the eastern edge of SoHo," says the source. The original architect Jean Nouvel, has been replaced by Gluckman Mayner Architects, which has designed many galleries and retail spaces including Helmut Lang and Yves Saint Laurent.
In recent years, Gluckman has designed many of the new galleries in Chelsea including Paula Cooper Gallery, Mary Boone Gallery, Cheim & Read, Luhring Augustine, Andrea Rosen and the new Gagosian Gallery.
The Crosby Street building will have loft-style apartments that will feature one per floor. The larger Lafayette Street building will have apartments of varying sizes featuring very large apartments with terraces on the top floors.
The apartments in the Lafayette Street building will also have expansive views panning both East to the Williamsburg Bridge and West across Manhattan. No prices have been floated as yet."
