Pritzker winner Tadao Andao's first New York City project will launch sales
next week (they're here!), and along with the announcement by the New York Post comes the first interior renderings from the building described as "a glass jewel box suspended in poured-in-place concrete" by the Times. Two apartments in the seven-story, seven-apartment building will be up for grabs: a 2,008 square foot 2BR, 2.5BA asking $5.75 million, and a 4,203 square foot 4BR, 4.5BA asking $14.8 million. Pricing for the remaining five apartments, which include a penthouse, has yet to be unveiled.
The building's interiors are designed by Michael Gabellini and Kimberly Sheppard, and will feature custom sliding countertop islands, dehumidification systems (for, you know, priceless art), and an automated parking garage.
Ando told the Times that he "wanted create a space which no one has created before with a very common material which anyone is familiar with and has access to. Concrete can be made anywhere on earth."
Sumaida + Khurana are developing the project, which is expected to be complete in late 2016.
