Fit to Print: An Industrial Chic Aesthetic in the West Village

Fit to Print: An Industrial Chic Aesthetic in the West Village

The duplex at 421 Hudson Street also features a personal catwalk

“It’s very grandiose, very different, and not cookie cutter at all,” COMPASS broker Dylan Hoffman declared, entering a seventh-floor unit at 421 Hudson Street.

Indeed, the 2,000-square-foot layout of the duplex is the result of a two-unit combination, and it stays true to the industrial theme of the Printing House—that is, with an abundance of gray slate, stainless steel and frosted glass doors. 

A metal staircase just off the entry staircase leads directly up to the guest bedroom, which has a full, private en-suite bath with a distressed wood vanity, slate floors and bathtub, as well as a wall of closets.

“The entire apartment is unique—this kind of avant-garde, industrial-slash-modern kind of feel to it,” Hoffman said, leading us into the living room of his $4.25 million listing, where double-height ceilings reach 15 feet and west-facing windows provide river views.

Venetian plaster and stucco walls complement the distressed white oak floors, which have “been run through a mill to create this grade,” Hoffman informed us. “It feels like it’s exfoliating!”

In contrast to popular open layouts, the stainless-steel-outfitted kitchen is closed off from the living area. An additional den is open to the living room, though it “could definitely be dedicated to a sitting room or another guest bedroom,” Hoffman opined, noting the full third bathroom for the area, as well as a powder room off the entryway.

The master suite is accessed by another staircase and is complete with a four-fixture bath. “This is my favorite part,” Hoffman said excitedly, opening the door to the walk-in closet and revealing a “catwalk” over to the rows of custom shelves. Given the sidewalk grate-like nature of the catwalk, Hoffman said that heels are perhaps best kept toward the front.

“It might not be for everyone,” Hoffman admitted, descending the stairs and admiring the modern silver light fixture hanging from the ceiling, “but we’ve had every walk of life come through here, and they’ve all appreciated the property for what it is—the work, art and love put into it.”

187-Year-Old West Village Carriage House Receives $4M Price Chop

187-Year-Old West Village Carriage House Receives $4M Price Chop

Two years and two price adjustments later, the 19th-century home will try again with a lower ask


A few months back, it was agreed that despite its magnificent charm, the 19th-century carriage house at 29 Downing Street would need a good price-chopper before a buyer would snatch it up. The owners must have come to this same realization—the home is now asking $8.995 million—a $4.005 million price cut from its most recent ask of $13 million.

Back in June 2014, the 3,480-square-foot home, built in 1829 on land once owned by Aaron Burr, was listed for $12 million. No one bit at that price so the sellers, artist John Bennett and photographer Karen Lee Grant, re-listed the following year for $13 million (yes, we scratched our heads at that too). But it looks like reality has set in, and with that came the new lowered price.

Hopefully the charming home, which has been featured in photo shoots for magazines and fashion brands alike, will have better luck finding a new owner on this go-round. (Or maybe the Hamiltoncraze will make people more interested? It's big enough to get mentioned in the brokerbabble, anyway.)

St. John's Terminal Redevelopment Gets First Renderings - Curbed NY


The redevelopment of the St. John's Terminal site could bring over 1,500residential units, many of them affordable, to the West Village, and the first images of what that project could look like are finally out, The Villager reports. Local residents aren't too thrilled about the proposed development, which entails razing the existing 1 million-square-foot St. John's Terminal building and erecting a 1.7 million-square-foot multi-building project, despite the benefits the developers say it would offer the community. For the time being, the plan is conceptual; it still needs to pass through a uniform land use review procedure (ULURP) before getting the go-ahead.


In a community meeting held this month, project architect COOKFOX presented designs for the Atlas Capital Group- and Westbrook Partners-developed project. The development's highlights include 500 units of affordable housing, of which 175 units are just for seniors. A little number crunching turns back that, at that rate, one-third of the projects apartments will be affordable, which is well above what's par for the course.


Here's how the plan breaks down: The tallest residential building proposed for the site, at 430 feet tall, will be fully market rate and sit at the northern end of the development. The 175-unit senior housing building will also be in this area, as will 40,000 square feet of retail—the developers suggest bringing in a Trader Joe's. There's also an additional 105,000 square feet of basement space for a big box-type store, as per the developer's suggestions. The middle section of development will include a smaller residential building with almost equal market rate and affordable apartments spread throughout, and a small garden adjacent to this building would connect it to the another fully market-rate residential building. The southern portion of the development will hold a set of mews and a350-room hotel.


The plan also includes publicly accessible park space. When St. John's Terminal was still in use, platforms connected it to the elevated railway track that now makes up the High Line. Under COOKFOX's plan, those platforms will be converted into mini elevated park space, much like the High Line.


If the plan moves forward, the developers will pay $100 million to the city to purchase Pier 40's air rights for the redevelopment of the terminal. In turn, those funds can be pumped back into the crumbling pier, which is in urgent need of repair.


Neighborhood residents are so up-in-arms because they believe the development does not address the burden it will add to the limited amount ofschools in the area, the fact that they need more medical facilities, and how the flood protection mechanism for this development might endanger the homes of other residents in the area.

"The tallest building in this plan is equal to the Trump Soho," Andrew Berman, the director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, told The Villager. "The overall project is equal to six Trump Sohos."

If the proposed development does not pass the ULURP process, the developers may move ahead with an as-of-right development, which wouldn't allow for the residential buildings the developer is looking to add.

At the community meeting, the developers assured that this will be the first of several discussions with the community in terms of designs and proposals before the project moves forward.
