Though Ian Schrager's condos on the Hudson River have been in the works for some time now, few details have been available: we knew they were being designed by starchitecture firm Herzog & de Meuron; that the address changed from 357 West Street to 160 Leroy Street; and that residents would have 50 pricey condos to choose from. And now, an article in the New York Times revealed more details on the somewhat mysterious development, including the fact that the sales gallery is now open to prospective buyers. But those buyers will need to pony up plenty of cash: one-bedrooms begin at $2.6 million. There's also a "12,000-square-foot penthouse with about 7,500 square feet of outdoor space and a private pool," though Schrager remained mum on how much that one will cost.
The number of units has been bumped down to a modest 49, and will rise 15 stories over the Hudson River. As seen in the rendering above, Herzog & de Meuron's curved building remains much the same as the older renderings, and will feature floor-to-ceiling windows that will "improve sightlines and offer views in more directions," according to the firm. The building will also have a 9,750-square-foot courtyard, designed by Madison Cox Associates; it's all expected to be completed in 2016.
