Everyone wants to live downtown, but not everyone can afford to do so. That’s why Soho Court is such a gem. There are 195 units in the building and 145 of those are one-bedroom apartments that convert beautifully into two-beds. In fact, if you do chose to convert the unit, the occupant of the second bedroom will still have ample closet space.
‘Notable Buildings’ in NoHo
With 275 units on 18 floors, 250 Mercer St. is one of the larger co-op buildings in Greenwich Village/NoHo area. What makes this co-op different? The board is very reasonable, allowing pets, guarantors, and pied-a-terres. Also, the building is equipped with a 24 hour doorman, live-in super, bicycle storage, common courtyard, and rooftop deck.
Interesting loft-like layouts including private terraces, nice city views, and ceilings spanning over 40 feet, give this building a certain “je-na-se-qua” as they say.
Bleecker Court is comprised of several adjoining buildings on Broadway and Mercer Street with a common entrance at 77 Bleecker Street. The building is very unique because it combines old and new architecture. In 1981 several older loft buildings that were once warehouses were combined with a new 14-story building, which was then converted to a co-op a few years later.
Located at the Nexus of Manhattan’s five hottest downtown neighborhoods, 304 Mulberry gives residents the luxury of a doorman with the feel of old New York. Plus, you literally look out of your window at NoHo SoHo and Nolita.
The Soho Plaza is one of NoHo’s only 24-hour doorman buildings. It sits at the crossroads of all of the most desired downtown neighborhoods; Soho, Little Italy, East and West Villages. Plus, you’re surrounded by the city’s best food spots and nightlife.
The lofts at 2 Bleecker Street will combine pre-war landmark structure with modern luxury. The building was constructed in 1866, and is now undergoing a meticulous enhancement and restoration that will keep the history intact while making it appear brand-new. These full floor lofts will be equipped with the finest modern interiors including 13-14’ ceilings, a pre-wired sound system, closets made custom by California Closets, and private elevator access. The fabulous Poliform kitchens will boast Miele, SubZero, and Bosch. All of this, located in the heart of NoHo, on the corner of Bleecker and Bowery.
Meet the building that started Condo Row in Noho, the Bond Street Lofts. This was the first new condo development in 50 years back in 2003 when it was built. With 6 stories and a curved façade, it now looks humble in comparison to its glitzy 40 and 48 Bond neighbors. At the time, the building stood out for its unusual amenities such as steam showers in the master bathrooms, four-person hot tubs and outdoor showers on the penthouses’ roofs. Today, however, many consider it a more attainable alternative to those seeking luxury and service in Noho.
Charcoal gray granite and large sheets of glass help this Condo Row neighbor stand out at 48 Bond Street. Though not as glitzy as 40 Bond, this new development deserves its own fan base, which prefers its sleek appearance to the more controversial structures of its next door neighbors. No wonder it sold out so quickly.
25 Bond represents supreme exclusivity on Noho’s “Condo Row.” Like its luxurious neighbors, 25 Bond does not disappoint. With its striking Egyptian limestone façade and its posh list of amenities, this condominium has developed a name all its own based on its high-end finishes, the vast square footage of its residences and its now elite location. At home, residents enjoy the custom touches one should well expect at this end of the high-end market, while outside they take pleasure in all that Noho and the two Villages have to offer.
40 Bond is a masterpiece of the new construction boom. One of my favorite buildings in the entire city, and most certainly my favorite new construction, 40 Bond Street was created by Ian Schrager and the Swiss based prize-winning team of Herzog & de Meuron.
