The 11-story building will offer 64 one- and two-bedroom homes, including special duplex townhouses and open lofts. It will be ready for occupancy in the summer of 2006.
"Our recent success at 505 Greenwich has put us in touch with the needs and aspirations of our downtown buyers," says Jane Gladstein, principal of MHP.
"These new residences will offer generously-sized living spaces in a building of striking design, with facades of glass curtain wall curtain wall
Nonbearing wall of glass, metal, or masonry attached to a building's exterior structural frame. After World War II, low energy costs gave impetus to the concept of the tall building as a glass prism, an idea originally put forth by Le Corbusier and Ludwig Mies and folded concrete, punctuated by metal mesh balconies. Our objective is to create an environment that works with a fresh, modern vocabulary, while presenting an enduring elegance that is comfortable for every day living."
The three duplex townhouses, accessed from the lobby, will feature 60-foot-deep backyards. Open lofts, the other special configuration, will have both east and west exposures and will feature 13' x 47' primary living areas with 10-foot ceilings, an oversized o·ver·size

One bedroom homes are priced from $975,000; two bedrooms are from $1,825,000; lofts are from $1,335,000; and townhouses are from $2,950,000.
"The design takes maximum advantage of the accessibility to light and open space," Ms. Gladstein notes. "Since the building fronts on Hudson Street and sets back 60 feet from Renwick Street, where the nearest building is 80 feet away, these homes will enjoy an unusual degree of privacy. The expansive windows capitalize on the beautiful light afforded by this site."
Commenting on the growing attractiveness of the area, Christopher Martorella, president of MHP, reports, "We believe that Western Soho enjoys the best of the neighboring communities of Tribeca, Central Soho and the West Village, which have combined to make Western Soho the city's most compelling area in which to live.
