Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese Architect Tadao Ando's first residential development in NYC and outside Asia, 152 Elizabeth Street, has just sold its highly anticipated duplex penthouse. Asking $35 million, the condo, which was never officially listed, is nearly 9,000 SF, with 5,603 SF of interior space and an additional 3,240 SF of outdoor space. The residence features 4-bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and spans 3 levels. Finishes include custom Pietra Cardosa stone, glass and satin spiral staircase by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, who served as interior designer of the entire building; a fireplace framed by Pietra Cardosa stone and artisan plaster; wide plank Danish oak flooring by Dinesen (which also wraps the bed wall in the master bedroom); Eucalyptus wood cabinetry; and a seamless kitchen that features a sliding countertop island by the Italian brand Minimal, which not only raises the island to dining height, but also successfully hides the kitchen sink and prep area from view. Outside, the first floor includes a private terrace outfitted with one of Tadao Ando's signature water walls, while the second includes a balcony off of the master suite and also designed by Ando. The third outdoor space, located on 152 Elizabeth's rooftop, leaves nothing to be desired and includes landscaped planters, a Tadao Ando-designed granite stone fireplace, outdoor kitchen with granite countertops and backslpash, Kalamazoo stainless steel dishwasher, Viking grill, Kalamazoo ice machine, carved granite soaking tub, reflecting pool and outdoor shower.
152 Elizabeth Street is a 7-story boutique condo building situated in the heart of Nolita. The building celebrates Ando's hallmarks such as poured-in-place concrete, burnished metal, voluminous glass and a living green wall. Considered a concrete and glass jewel box, the striking condominium features just 7, luxurious custom homes, each of which is focused on creating a sense of openness throughout the home as well as a fluidity between the indoors and the outdoors. 152 Elizabeth is being developed by Sumaida + Khurana, Compass is the exclusive sales and marketing firm for the development.
