The city's saddest starchitecture?the stalled condo at 290 Mulberry Street?is on the verge of a much-anticipated reappearance. A press release informs us that the building, recently purchased by Karass Development, will return to market as a rental, known as Mulberry House, sometime in "early summer." (The interiors are currently, and finally, being finished.) There's no pricing yet, but there is a preliminary website, which has this to say about the interiors:
All residences at Mulberry House include private keyed elevators, radiant-heat Walnut flooring, security camera systems, central A/C and oversized double-glazed windows. State-of-the-art kitchens boast custom gloss-white cabinetry with stone countertops, Bosch gas cooktops and ovens, Miele dishwashers and Liebherr stainless steel refrigerators. In addition, all kitchens feature Marvel wine coolers to keep bottles at the perfect temperature. The lofts’ bathrooms are equally luxurious. Designed as spa-like retreats, Mulberry House baths boast custom vanities and concrete tubs designed by SHoP Architects. All residents will appreciate amenities including the full-time lobby attendant, common terrace located on the second floor, and the available private storage units. Ah, but are the appliances c. 2008?
There are eight full-floor, three-bedroom units, topped by a triplex penthouse. The building's website describes that penthouse like this:
This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, villa in the sky comes complete with 1600 sq ft of private outdoor space, accessible from both the living and dining areas, as well as from the two secondary bedrooms. Located one floor above the main living area, the private master suite features sweeping views of Manhattan from strategically placed corner windows; and the private rooftop terrace above is the ultimate getaway.
