HUDSON SQUARE — Sales have officially launched for the new two-tower, Renzo Piano-designed condo building at 565 Broome St. in Hudson Square, just a block west of SoHo.
The 30-story building boasts 115 units, from studios priced at just under $1 million to full-floor four-bedrooms for around $20 million, spread across two 290-foot tall towers set back from the street and made of curved glass.
It is the latest New York City structure by the architect known for designing both the new Whitney Museum in the Meatpacking District and the New York Times building in Times Square.
"I was immediately drawn to this site and inspired by its natural surroundings with the harmonious flow of the river to the west, unobstructed views all around, and the ability to create a building that actually breathes air and light," Piano said in a statement.
The building has 360-degree views of the Hudson River, SoHo, Midtown, TriBeCa and the World Trade Center through windows made from low-iron glass that offers a clearer, crisper view than typical glass windows.
Piano left vertical panes off of the windows of the corner residences and amenity spaces to "make you feel like you are flying," he said.
The interiors were designed by Paris-based firm RDAI, with 6-inch white oak plan floors, master bathrooms with heated floors, custom-designed white oak vanities with Zucchetti countertops, frameless glass shower doors and Duravit wall-hung toilets, and chef's kitchens with custom-designed white oak cabinetry and Basaltina countertops, Zucchetti fixtures, Blanco sinks and Miele refrigerators, wine storage, dishwashers, wall ovens, microwaves, speed ovens and gas cooktops with four or six burners and Miele exterior venting stainless steel hoods.
Duplex and penthouse kitchens include warming drawers, and some of the higher-priced units have vast private terraces with 25-foot private saltwater pools and outdoor living rooms meant to flow from the interior living spaces.
The building boasts 1,700 square feet of amenities, including a landscaped outdoor terrace, a 55-foot saltwater lap pool, a fitness center and yoga studio, sauna and steam room facilities, a media room, a children's playroom and a 24/7 concierge desk.
A glass-enclosed, 90-foot-tall landscaped lounge and conservatory holds a library and wet bar.
The sales gallery, also designed by RDAI, is located a few blocks from the building itself at 372 West Broadway in SoHo.
