A former book bindery that served myriad other industrial uses beginning in 1883, the handsome red-brick landmark that is 443 Greenwich Street is sheathed in scaffolding and entering its next stage of life: conversion into 53 very large, very handsome condominiums. The piece de resistance is the 4,000-square-foot central courtyard, which will be landscaped with "indigenous materials" given that this part of Manhattan was once underwater in a swampy, marshy pond.
Developed Metro Loft, designed by CetraRuddy, and sold by Cantor Pecorella, chiefs from all three firms gave Curbed a tour of the under-construction building, which is currently having all its floors replaced and getting crucial structural reinforcement for the next phases. (Field Condition also toured the sales office and site.) The courtyard is currently being dug up so that a parking garage and amenity spaces can be built in the basement level, before it's covered up and landscaped.
Apartments start at $3.5 million, but 20 out of the 53 have already been sold. Plus, the penthouse with a pretty bonkers pool, which will be housed in an approved addition on the roof, just officially hit the market for $51 million.
