CITY REALTY ARTICLE
The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a certificate of appropriateness in September 2006 for a new building planned for 52 Wooster Street in SoHo that was distinguished by the split personality of its façades.
The approved design had been revised by Arpad Baksa, the architect for the planned 6-story building that would rise on an existing parking lot at the southeast corner of Broome Street after the commission indicated at a hearing that July that it was concerned about the arrangement of the façades.
Most of the commission members seemed generally pleased with the design in July, but were tempted to tinker. Vice chairman Pablo E. Vengoechea indicated he has some “trouble with the material,” but Commissioner Steven Byrns said he was “relatively comfortable with the material,” adding that he liked the “sliver” on Broome Street where the adjoining building leans into it by about 22 inches because it shows the pecularity of old buildings.
Mr. Byrns suggested that the metal grid façade on Wooster should be reduced to just two bays at the corner, while commissioner Margery Perlmutter, on the other hand, said “rather than reducing the metal, extend it more” along the Wooster Street frontage.
Mr. Byrns’s suggestion won out.
The original plans called for five, full floor, three-bedroom residential condominium units with about 2,000 square feet each, but as built in 2015 the building has only 4 units.
The developer is Continental Ventures whose other projects in the city have included Element at 555 West 59th Street and MercerGreene at 92 Greene Street/109 Mercer Street. Jane Gol is the president of Continental Ventures.
The interior design is by Grade.
