After getting a peak of its entryway facade in March and announcing that rocker/actor Lenny Kravitz will mold its interior residences, we now have our first full look at DHA Capital‘s 35-unit condominium 75 Kenmare Street. Situated at the corner of Mulberry Street in Nolita, the upcoming seven-story development converts and expands upon a parking garage which DHA, in partnership with AMS Acquisitions and First Atlantic Capital, purchased for $50 million last year. Manhattan-based architect Andre Kikoski designed a sumptuous masonry skin composed of “richly textured and finely scaled” cast-formed concrete, and the apartments are expected to go from $1.7 million to more than $12 million.

The building that 75 Kenmare is replacing

The building is situated in the heart of the Chinatown-Little Italy National Historic District, which mandates that more than 50.01% of the new structure’s exterior be made of masonry. Inspired by the varying patterns of hand-laid brick cladding the district’s century-old structures, Kikoski sought to make a striking contemporary statement to complement the neighborhood’s architectural treasures.

His webpage states:

I studied ways in which hand laid brick is used to create detail and expression in historic buildings around NoLita, as well as innovative ways brick has been used in bringing pattern, texture and rhythm. My design solution references these precedents without repeating them, in the process transforming the literal building blocks of Manhattan. Most notably, I reinterpret the bricks themselves in cast formed concrete, imagining a richly textured and finely scaled surface with thoughtfully contemplated aggregate, color, and a surface patina. Vertical panels cast a series of narrow channels in three unique widths to define the architecture of the street wall. Each unique width is in a specific vertical plane that is set consistently with respect to the other two, and the pattern of channels is staggered randomly to create a stunning contemporary play of dimension, shade and shadow.

Deeply inset windows are accented by champagne-colored panels, and the building is topped by a modern cornice and a setback penthouse floor. It rises to the neighborhood’s height limit of 75 feet, and its ground level will host a commercial space. Its cellar and sub-cellar levels will provide 150 parking spaces and a short-list of amenities including a fitness center, a communal rooftop terrace, and bike storage.

Interiors by Kravitz Design have yet to be revealed, but Lenny, a downtown local, founded the design firm in 2003, with a bold aesthetic inspired by 1970s New York club culture and the easygoing California music scene of the same decade. The building’s teaser site recently launched, and Douglas Elliman’s Ecklund Gomes Team will be marketing the units, a collection of one- to four-bedroom homes ranging in price from approximately $1.7 million to more than $12 million. In April, The Real Deal reported that the expected sellout is pegged at $127 million.
