Tribecan warehouse 443 Greenwich Street has been slated for a conversion, in one form or another, since 2012, but (h/t to a tipster) here's the world's first in-color, non-historic-photo look at the project. A former book bindery that dates back to 1882, the site has lain vacant for a decade, but now developer Metro Loft is definitely turning the large, almost acre-sized parcel into 53 condos. After all, who can argue with facts presented by a teaser site? The units break down like this: 45 lofts (from 2,000 to 5,000 square feet) and eight penthouses (from 3,500 to 9,500 square feet), which, like so many others, are hitting the market this spring.
The only other details about the building released thus far relate to its copious amenities: a 71-foot indoor swimming pool; children's playroom, landscaped roof terrace, fitness center, private fitness studios, as well as both men's and women's locker rooms with steam rooms and saunas. There will be private storage rooms and a wine cellar. Also, a limited number of indoor parking spaces will be available for purchase. It's a landmark, so the facade will presumably get spruced up as all those luxury bells 'n' whistles are built out on the inside.
