Despite the claim by some preservationists that the building looked like “a block of swiss cheese,” back in June the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved Maya Lin Studio‘s design of a contemporary mega-mansion in the heart of Tribeca‘s historic district. The plans call for a five-story, 20,000-square-foot home at 11 Hubert Street–including incredible amenities such as an 82-foot swimming pool, basketball/squash court, four-car garage, and an open-air courtyard–and, as the Post reports, the corner site has just hit the market for $35 million, though this doesn’t include the $15 million it’ll cost to actually build the house.
Artist and architect Maya Lin, best known for her design of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., has just purchased a sprawling loft unit at 35 Bond Street in Noho, according to city records. Lin paid $4.5 million for the 3,260-square-foot space, which remains extremely raw, making for the perfect blank canvas workspace or renovation project for the multi-disciplinary creative who has also been known to dabble in interior design.
The holiday season is fast approaching, which means there are undoubtedly plenty of festivities on your calendar. Well, if you happen to have $60,000 a month in your pocket, perhaps you’ll enjoy this sprawling condo at The Curzon House; it’s warm enough for the winter months and large enough to spread out in when you’ve had enough family time. Internationally renowned architect, Yonkers jail converter, and designer of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Maya Lin spent several years painstakingly renovating this spectacular pad. The end result is a showstopper that has been featured in a number of publications.
For nine decades the brick walls at 24-26 Alexander Street in Yonkers were known more for its portfolio of inmates than as a museum-like structure. But soon the classic two-story building will be liberated from its former life as a prison to house a collection of a very different kind.
As part of a concentrated effort by the City of Yonkers to continue the transformation of the area all along the Husdon River, Mayor Mike Spano was more than a little excited when art collector and dealer, Daniel Wolf, and his wife, the renowned artist and architect Maya Lin, expressed interest in the property.
