Alas, information about soon-to-launch 443 Greenwich Street up till now has been somewhat piecemeal, with early renderings, floorplans, pricing, sales office interiors and other details provided by tipsters rather than the developers themselves. But Metro Loft divulged tons of juicy tidbits to the Times, so it's all official now. In no particular order, here are eight salient, official, and totally confirmed facts about Tribeca's newest conversion and its 53 units, all designed by CetraRuddy:
1) It will have a 4,000-square-foot interior courtyard that residents can actually use, "lined with hundreds of windows and shutters with a 19th-century aesthetic and will have seats shaded by sassafras trees." Though it will probably shut down around 7 p.m. for noise reasons.
2) The conversion is costing $300 million. One expensive project was restoring the more than 600 shutters when only 20 were "salvageable."
3) Prices for the non-penthouse apartments, most of which are three-bedrooms between 2,600 and 4,600 square feet with both street-facing and garden-facing views, will be around $3,000/square foot.
4) There are eight penthouses, which will around $4,500 a square foot. As expected, the priciest one, a triplex, will go on the market for a whopping $53 million.
5) As for interiors, "the condos will have kitchens with two dishwashers, a 70-bottle wine fridge and drawers in which to warm cappuccino cups before coffee is poured in them. The baths will offer stand-alone tubs against dark-marble panels. Bidets will also be installed."
6) Amenities include an indoor pool and a driveway into the building's basement for almost door-to-door access.
7) Sales will launch this month, courtesy of brokerage Cantor-Pecorella.
8) The building is slated to open in 2016.
