The listing points out that this “industrial chic downtown property” even offers additional FAR for adding more space.
In its current setup, The building is comprised of a duplex apartment with outdoor space and a large triplex with 20-foot ceilings, a terrace and a roof deck. There’s even a spacious cellar.
From the architects: “Designed to emphasize the latest tenets of eco-friendly construction, the space features concrete floors with radiant heat throughout. The opposing elements in the building and on the facade – hard and soft, open and closed, public and private – create a dynamic reflection of the changing Lower East Side neighborhood.”
The commercial space on the ground level is currently home to the City Lore Gallery, an urban culture gallery.
