Pritzker Prize winner Tadao Andao is remaking a corner of Nolita into a sleek collection of seven condos, which are officially up for grabs. The first units hit the market late last week, and now the developers, Sumaida + Khurana, have released the first floorplans and a lot more renderings showcasing the interiors, designed by Michael Gabellini and Kimberly Sheppard. The website lists three available apartments, two half floor units on the second floor, and a full-floor unit on the fourth. The latter measures 4,203 square feet and is listed for $14.8 million, while the others measure about 2,000 square feet each. The penthouse has not yet hit the market, but it will ask more than $35 million.
Ando designed the building to be a "sanctuary" apart from the business of Manhattan. He says, as quoted on the website, "A home has to be a place where you can reflect on your life. This project is about that. When you come home, 152 Elizabeth should give a quiet feeling. I have to make something that touches human hearts and leaves a feeling inside of them."
For the interiors, Gabellini tailored his designs to Ando's creation. The website notes that Gabellini feels that the main idea "is for the spaces to be so timeless—and of such high quality—that they're cherished, maintained, and passed down, not torn apart and replaced by something else a few decades later. Establishing the 152 Elizabeth residences required honing in on four main concepts, or elements, that define the interior and exterior spaces: light, air, sound, and water."
