If the buzz over Herzog & de Meuron's Tribeca condos at 56 Leonard are any indication, hotelier Ian Schrager's modern tower on the Lower East Side is going to put real estate-watchers over the moon. (Neighborhood preservationists, not so much, given the building's glassy appearance and relatively tall stature.) And lo, thanks to New York YIMBY, new renderings have emerged for the condo/hotel project, including the very first look inside. 215 Chrystie Street, between East Houston and Stanton, will house New York's first Public hotel, with 370 rooms taking up the first 18 floors, while 11 giant condos will sprawl across the top 10 stories. Sales are apparently launching in the next three weeks, with the proposed asking prices to hover around $4,000/square footwhich is bonkers pricey for the LES.
Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect of record, and John Pawson is doing the interiors. That protrusion from the top of the building, YIMBY says, is a sheathing that will hide all the mechanical equipment from view.
Here are some older renderings of the project, plus the teaser site's da Vinci-invoking visual:
