The condo conversion of the landmark Children's Aid Society building on Sullivan Street is now underway, and the marketing team sent out a few more slivers of information about the project, which is being developed by Broad Street Development. A new rendering of the Edmund Hollander-designed entrance garden was released and promptly Instagrammed by Fredrik Eklund, who is marketing the building with Sarah Burke and John Gomes of Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. Eklund says the 25 homes will be priced from approximately "$3M to over $16M." Sales will launch in early 2014.
The conversion will restore the original Calvert Vaux-designed building and add to it with modern new construction by architect Ed Rawlings. Homes range from 1 to 6 bedrooms, and there will be four townhouses, each with private underground parking. Eric Cohler is designing the interiors, and more than half of the homes will have private outdoor space. Compared to other similar projects in the area, a Curbed operative says 215 Sullivan seems "relatively inexpensive sounding." Mmhmm, right. A total steal.
