The Children's Aid Society sold off few buildings in Greenwich Village to developers several years ago, after the neighborhood got too rich to be an appropriate location for the organization. The developers opted to do what so many have done before them, and convert the buildings to condos. The teaser site for those condos?address: 215 Sullivan Street?is now live. And, happily, it has more information than most condo teaser sites!
The building will contain 25 condos, five of them penthouses and four of them townhouses. More than half of the apartments, which go up to six bedrooms in size, will have private outdoor space, and the townhouses will have private underground parking with direct access to the house.
The building is architecturally notable because it was designed by Calvert Vaux (half of the duo that designed Central Park), but developer Broad Street Development has added some of its own touches. We don't know exactly what those are?the teaser site offers only the partial rendering above and the notation that the building has been "creatively expanded and thoughtfully re-imagined for contemporary living." Architect Ed Rawlings, landscape architect Edmund Hollander, and interior designer Eric Cohler have all played a hand in the redesign. Interior finishes include custom-finished white oak flooring and Carrara marble floors in the bathrooms. Sales, led by Sarah Burke, Fredrik Eklund, and John Gomes, will begin in early 2014.
