Selldorf Architects Brings Contemporary Living to New York City's Historic Greenwich Village
NEW YORK, June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- William Macklowe Company, a New York-based real estate investment and development company, together with co-developer Goldman Sachs, today announced the launch of sales at 21 East 12th Street, a collection of 52 condominium residences designed by Selldorf Architects in the heart of Greenwich Village. Located at 12th Street and University Place, 21 East 12th Street is a contemporary interpretation of the limestone-faced prewar apartment buildings of the neighborhood.
"At 22 stories, 21 East 12th Street is taller than many of the neighboring low-rise buildings and set back on an outdoor garden podium, maximizing light and views for residents while bringing sunlight to the garden and streets," explained Billy Macklowe, CEO of William Macklowe Company. "The building's green space is a connector between the neighborhood's two parks, Union Square Park to the north and Washington Square Park to the south."
"Our goal is to design a building that has a positive impact not just on the people who live there but on neighbors and passersby alike. At 21 East 12th Street, the functional and spacious interiors create a wonderful living experience for the residents as the streetscape and outdoor space enhances the neighborhood for everyone," noted Annabelle Selldorf, founding principal of Selldorf Architects.
The residences at 21 East 12th Street blend functionality with grand layouts in natural stone and wood finishes. Nearly all living rooms feature corner exposures, where generous casement windows pre-wired for solar shades frame views, while allowing ample space to display art. Two townhomes sit atop the building's garden podium, offering dramatic double-height living spaces and 3,200 square foot private outdoor spaces. Glass-wrapped duplex penthouses with three exposures and generous private terraces create expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces.
Among the meticulously curated details are custom light fixtures and hardware from VICA designed by Selldorf Architects. Kitchens with La Pietra Lavica stone countertops and custom white oak cabinetry by Valcucine feature Waterworks fittings. The Gaggenau kitchen suites include stainless steel cooktops and vented hood enclosures, integrated dishwashers, built-in ovens, microwaves and large Julien sinks with disposals. There are also fully-integrated Sub-Zero refrigerators, freezers and wine coolers.
Master bathrooms are adorned with Sicis Murano glass mosaic tile flooring accented with Bardiglio Lucca slab marble borders and walls. There are white lacquer vanities custom designed by Selldorf Architects with Bardiglio Lucca Marble slab countertops, rainfall showers and freestanding soaking tubs, as well as radiant heated floors.
Secondary bathrooms include Sicis Murano glass mosaic tile flooring with white Carrara slab marble borders, mosaic tile walls in the shower and an under mount steel enamel tub all complete with a white Carrara marble surround. Polished chrome faucets and showers are by Waterworks. All residences at 21 East 12th Street offer abundant closets with integrated lighting and vented washing machines and dryers.
21 East 12th Street affords a full-service lifestyle experience for residents, from the moment you enter the 24-hour attended lobby, masterfully designed and furnished by Selldorf Architects with an innovative light installation by Apparatus Studio, Shikkui plaster walls and site-commissioned art by international artist Harold Ancart. Amenities at 21 East 12th Street include a resident's lounge featuring a generous outdoor entertaining terrace, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, a children's playroom and coveted on-site parking.
Greenwich Village was once known as a thriving enclave for artists and musicians and continues to be one of New York City's most beloved historic neighborhoods. Situated between Union Square and Washington Square Parks, 21 East 12th Street is close to some of New York's best award-winning restaurants such as Babbo, Blue Hill and Gotham Bar and Grill. Union Square offers an outdoor greenmarket several days a week and provides access to most major subway lines.
