40 Bleecker Street New York seamlessly blends modern design with the quality and distinction of buildings constructed a century ago. The renovation project has been designed by Rawlings Architects, with landscape architecture by Edmund Hollander Landscape Design.
Channeling the prestige coursing down Park Avenue, the chic emanating from SoHo, the energy of nearby Washington Square, and the artistic history of the neighboring East Village, NoHo represents the nexus of culture.
The newly revamped building is also nearby newer cultural landmarks like the New Museum and Sperrone Westwater Gallery, along with some of Manhattan’s most buzzed-about restaurants and SoHo’s collection of the finest retailers in the world.
Its detailed curtain wall is finally being unveiled and brought back to formal glory; the rounded glass and brick corners and subtle appointments between the floor-to ceiling windows can now be admired once again from street level.
The striking brick and metal façade features punched glass window openings that are an important nod to the past and a reference to the historic, landmarked buildings within the surrounding NoHo neighborhood. It consists of large windows vertically grouped in two-story pairs among a tight narrow grid across the wide western elevation facing Mulberry Street and the shorter northern profile along Bleecker Street.
Undulating in a step-like fashion at the top three penthouse levels and gently curving at its corners to maximize light and views, 40 Bleecker Street New York offers a boldly contemporary exterior design well situated among the historically industrial pre-war buildings of its surroundings.
The highly anticipated new luxury condominium project in Noho (developed by the New York based Broad Street Development) is all conceived by Ryan Korban including both the residences and shared spaces, interiors are the eye-popping hallmark of the project.
The 12-story ground-up condominium building, containing 61 one-to-fivebedroom residences, within the coveted landmarked downtown neighborhood, and brings together an unrivaled team of collaborators including two members of Architectural Digest’s prestigious AD100 list.
Ryan Korban in his residential condominium debut takes a nuanced approach to design, blending forward-thinking vision with a subtlety that seduces and intrigues.
He is best known for his flagship luxury apparel stores (Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Aquazzura, Fivestory) and private homes for a bevy of fashion designers, models, actors and other prominent cultural figures.
A carefully curated amenity selection will be available to future residents at 40 Bleecker including an indoor 58-foot swimming pool, state-of-the-art exercise room and stretching studio, as well as white glove concierge service, a live-in superintendent and bicycle storage and private parking spaces.
The light-filled homes feature a collection of six penthouses, each with private outdoor space, that crown the top floors of the building. Elegantly proportioned residences are graced with high ceilings, enormous banks of windows, and a richly layered palette of materials hand-selected by Korban, coming together in a highly stylized living experience and celebrating the building’s captivating architecture.
The design interior showcases a level of fine bespoke detail and custom finishes –- unprecedented for a new development project of this size.
To welcome residents and guests, the warm lobby is appointed with honed statuary marble and dove grey terrazzo flooring, offset by suede-paneled and Beauval limestone walls. In the intimate seating area, two Korban-designed sofas clad in statuary marble surround a custom-designed French limestone slab coffee table that takes center stage atop a soft grey silk rug, all centered around a black marble fireplace lined in bronze.
Each kitchen, outfitted with appliances by Miele, has been flawlessly designed to combine fine craftsmanship with sleek, modern technology. Sculptural, cantilevered and waterfall-style islands in honed statuary marble along with book-matched marble hoods are the focal point of the spaces, complemented by elegant Italian cerused oak cabinetry with fluted bronze-colored glass and SA Baxter burnished nickel hardware. Present throughout the residences and sourced from sustainable French Oak is Listone Giordano special grey chevron wood flooring (reminiscent of noble Mitteleuropean palaces).
In the master baths, Korban has custom-designed the marble vanities that are surrounded by a reflective layer of mirror and glass to amplify both space and light.
Echoing the adjacent living rooms, the master baths floors consist of Grigio dove and Calcutta moon light marble layered in a chevron pattern. Within the powder rooms, handselected statuary marble envelops the area and a unique custom lighting design by Bill Schwinghammer illuminates the interiors.
Bringing a relaxing calm to the dynamic city energy, 40 Bleecker’s landscape architecture by esteemed Edmund Hollander Lanscape Design, blends the boundaries between the interior and exterior. The quiet retreat at the heart of the building is a 5,600 square foot sculpture garden that has been mindfully designed and thoughtfully appointed with lush, sustainably sourced greenery and seasonal flora.
Punctuated by reflecting pools, Zen waterfalls and chevron paths, private seating groupings located throughout the garden adapt for both privacy and gathering. The ideal place, a holistic architectural model that provides the right framework to live in harmony and nurture the emotional stability and wellness.
