The 58-unit Huys (pronounced “House”) building, developed by Kroonenberg Groep and designed by Piet Boon, will include open lofts, three-bedroom homes, five penthouses and a four-bedroom duplex penthouse with a huge private roof terrace and outdoor kitchen. The developer renovated the facade to create enlarged window openings, projecting bay windows and Juliet balconies with floor-to-ceiling glass, so residents can enjoy that famed “Dutch light” in lower-Midtown Manhattan.
The apartments will feature 6″ wide oak plank floors, built-in window seats, 11.5-foot-high ceilings with original beams and custom millwork with the “attention to detail, simple sophistication and superior quality” of classic Dutch design.
The team assembled by Netherlands-based Kroonenberg has some serious design cred: Piet Oudolf, known for his landscape design for the High Line, is designing the roof terrace, and construction management firm Sciame was behind the Guggenheim Museum.
Amenities include a concierge, doorman and a common roof deck. Here’s a bonus walk-through video Interior Design magazine did on the development, which sports Dutch-made, Huys-branded custom bikes in the sales office:
