Standing tall as one of the most handsome buildings of New York City, 152 Elizabeth Street offers a new building construction that is Tadao Ando's first residence designed in New York. The façade is striking and showcases the details and ingenuity its architecture holds, and hint at the blend of comfort and luxury that dictates the interiors if the building.
Inside the building, carefully composed, light-filled interiors by Michael Gabellini evoke a thoughtful sense of craft and refinement rarely found, and lend the building the immediate occupancy expectancy that it enjoys.
Dinesen Heart Oak wide plank flooring and wrapped corridors make these residences home, with the floor-to-ceiling windows making the generous layouts airy and filled with natural light, while the concealed ventilation systems of the building and fireplaces in select residences guarantee you comfort. Amenities include a full-time doorman, elevator, parking, storage, garden as well as a roof deck.
CITY REALTY ARTICLE
This very strong minimalist 7-story residential building at 152 Elizabeth Street on the southeast corner of Kenmare Street four blocks east of Lafayette Street in NoLiTa is the first to be designed in New York City by Tadao Ando, who won the Pritzker Prize for Architecture in 1995.
It is scheduled for completion in 2016. It will have 7 condominium apartments. The site was formerly occupied by a four-story garage.
Michael Gambellini of Gabellini Sheppard Associates, is designing the interiors.
Saif Sumaida and Amit Khurana is the developer, which bought the site for $21 million in 2014. It also recently commissioned Alvaro Siza, and recipient of the Pritzker Prize, to design a 400-foot-tall residential tower at 11th Avenue and 56th Street.
Mr. Ando’s other projects in the United States include the very elegant Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth that has low-rise pavilions in a pond, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis and the visitor and exhibition building at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass.
