We got a long, lingering look inside the sales office of Tribeca’s two-facade stunner The Sterling Mason.
The seven-story, 33-unit project at 71 Laight Street will be designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, with interiors by Gachot Inc. The two- through six-bedroom residences will be priced from $4 million to $24 million.
Before we dive into the sales office at 459 Washington Street, a little history lesson: The building was originally a 1905 masonry loft warehouse for coffee and tea. The developer, Taconic Investment Partners, plans to preserve the historic building and create an identical adjoining structure on Greenwich Street. The newly built twin (“Sterling”) will be wrapped in aluminum panel, while its historical counterpart (“Mason”) will have a terra cotta facade. Hence, The Sterling Mason.
All units will have galleries, foyers and 5″ white oak plank flooring, with Juliet balconies in some apartments. The bespoke kitchens by Seattle-based atelier Henrybuilt have marble countertops sourced from Vermont and custom vented hoods made of the same stuff in Bugattis and dreams:
The bathrooms flaunt herringbone marble floors with radiant heating, custom vanities and doors, Gachot-designed sconces, millwork by Henrybuilt, Toto toilets and some magical-realism lighting that made us look the best we’ve looked in years:
Amenities include a concierge, doorman, porters, library lounge, interior courtyard, private dining room, gym with yoga studio, children’s playroom, underground parking spaces available for purchase, 23 storage rooms and an on-premise building manager. The courtyard, designed by Deborah Nevins, comes complete with a reflecting pool on axis with the entrance:
Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is marketing the property. The floorplans have not been released yet, but we’ve seen them, and they’re real and spectacular. Especially the five-bedroom unit. Whew.
