Thread: Hudson Blue - 423 West Street - West Village - by Patrick Han of HB2

    Default So where's the Blue in Hudson Blue?

    The blue was construction film after all, but what's underneath is...no color at all.

    Lost its snap.

    ^ Too bad.

    Oh well, maybe some European will come along and do something bright. They're not afraid of color in Europe.

    Default Everything is Relative ...

    When that relatively little brownish brick building with the funky balconies (center of Zip's last photo) went up in the '80s it was the biggest building on that blockfront -- and at the time seemed huge for what was around it.

    Now it be dwarfed by the newcomers -- and looks sadly "Kaufmanesque" ...

    Before the newcomers, that building reminded me of a motel.

    6/23: This building, though dull, sort of completes the block. Before, Meier's towers stood somewhat on their own. Now, they have a little brother, almost a premonition from the north of better, bigger things to the south. (Did that make any sense at all? )

    It'd be better if they kept the bright blue...but it's still alright.

    When you gotta go, you gotta go.

    9 bathrooms; 5-1/2 half-bathrooms. What's a half-half bathroom?


    From City Realty:

    Hudson Blue now being offered as single-family house

    When it was erected by Horizen Global, which is headed by Michael Yanko, the 10-story building at 423 West Street facing the Hudson River was planned to contain 8 condominium apartments.

    Designed by Patrick Han, the very attractive building, which has been known as Hudson Blue, was notable for the thin diagonal pier on its mostly glass facade. The building, which is 23.5 feet wide and between Perry and West 11th Streets, has a setback at the ninth floor. It is just to the north of the three modern mid-rise buildings designed by Richard Meier for two different developers.

    It was planned to have a part-time attending lobby with limestone floors and a fireplace and all apartments would have fireplaces and balconies or terraces and the building has private storage areas and a wine cellar. Prices initially for 1,245-sq. ft.-units with 1.5 baths were to start at about $1,990,000.

    Times have changed and in December the building was listed with just six units.

    Now, however, the developer is offering the building as a single-family home. The property is now listed as a 15,000-square-foot, 21-room house with 11 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and five-and-a-half half-bathrooms and is listed by Mara Flash Blum of Sotheby's for $21 million.

    She told CityRealty.com that the change in strategy is "because we have substantial interest in the whole building over individual unit."

    At $21 million, it might be considered a bargain because of its river views and the fact that another townhouse now under construction at 2 North Moore Street, several blocks south in TriBeCa has only six floors with a total of about $11,300 square feet and a $35 million pricetag. It has 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 4 powder rooms, a garage and a 47-foot, heated lap pool.

    There are other choices.

    The 45-foot-wide, 22,000-square-foot mansion at 22 East 72nd Street that has been occupied for several years by the Salander-O'Reilly Galleries, has been placed on the market with a $75 million pricetag.

    It has grand interior spaces and was designed in 1922 by C. P. H. Gilbert for Julius Forstmann, a wool merchant. It was acquired a few years ago by Aby Rosen and Michael Fuchs for about $15,650,000.
