Stop the presses (and convert them): NoHo ex-printing factory The Schumacher has officially launched sales.
The seven-story, 20-unit building, located at 36 Bleecker Street, was designed by Morris Adjmi. The Stillman Development International project offers two- to four-bedroom lofts starting at $3.75 million. Contracts for 10 of the units were sent out to interested buyers this week, The Real Deal reported.
The homes have high barrel vaulted ceilings reaching up to 16 feet and open floorplans “specifically tailored to enable light to fully suffuse living space,” according to the browser-genic official site. The Romanesque Revival-style building originally hosted a lithographic company, so it needed large windows and good lighting for workers to judge the quality of prints.
We doubt any lithographic workers will be occupying these revamped digs; Douglas Elliman’s John Gomes, who is marketing the project with Fredrik Eklund, is aiming for the rhymes-with-millionaire-but-richer crowd. “This building is going to be the new billionaires club,” he told The Real Deal.
Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, 750-square-foot fitness center, refrigerated lobby storage, bicycle storage, pirate-themed children’s playroom, individual storage available for purchase, library and rooftop garden designed by Ken Smith. The central courtyard will have elegantly latticed evergreen vines on 6-inch marble gravel and two simple fountains to “provide a visual and aural experience” for your eyeballs/earballs. There will also be an art program curated by Soho gallerist Cristina Grajales.
The development will be ready for occupancy by September 2014. Renderings — and lots of barrel-vault ceiling porn — from the official site below:
