344 Bowery Street
344 Bowery was originally built as a manufacturing building in 1892. In 2007 the building was converted into a boutique condominium, comprised of five full floor loft apartments and one Penthouse duplex. Each of the full floor apartments offer a gracious two bedroom, two bath layout. The Penthouse Duplex boasts three bedrooms, three baths and has two private roof terraces with an outdoor kitchen and a wood burning fireplace.
All of the buildings residences have been finished to the most exacting standards and feature a high end chef’s kitchen, spa-like baths with Kohler tea for two soaking tubs, central heat and air, white oak flooring and beautifully restored red brick walls. Additional features include a private key-lock elevator that opens directly into each loft’s living room, four exposures which maximize the amount of natural sunlight, private basement storage and of course the bulls eye NoHo location, Bowery between Bond Street and Great Jones.

About NoHo: NoHo is primarily made up of loft apartments, which in turn makes it one of the most expensive and desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan. Its small size and central location also contributes to a high demand, again keeping prices high.
The NoHo Historic District, which comprises approximately 125 buildings, represents the period of New York City’s commercial history from the early 1850s to the 1910s, when this section prospered as one of its major retail and wholesale dry goods centers. Acclaimed architects were commissioned to design ornate store and loft buildings in popular architectural styles, providing a rich fabric against which shoppers promenaded, looked at display windows, and bought goods, and merchants sold products. The district also contains early-nineteenth century houses, nineteenth- and twentieth-century institutional buildings, turn-of-the-century office buildings, as well as modest twentieth-century commercial structures, all of which testify to each successive phase in the development of the historic district. Today, the effect is of powerful and unifying streetscapes of marble, cast-iron, limestone, brick, and terracotta facades.
