What's Old is New Again in NYC Real Estate



What's Old is New in NYC

From converted former factories to onetime hotels and schools, many of New York’s most luxurious new residential buildings aren’t technically new at all. Among the standouts: Woolworth Tower Residences, a collection of condos on the top 30 floors of Cass Gilbert’s 1913 jewel, all recently retrofitted by French architect Thierry Despont. Located in Nolita’s Federal-style Old St. Patrick’s School and Convent, the Residences at Prince is a condominium/townhouse hybrid by Marvel Architects.

Uptown at the condo development 88 & 90 Lex, Workshop/APD merged a 1927 prewar structure with a 1958 office building. And in Brooklyn Heights, the 1903 Beaux-Arts Standish hotel now houses 29 condominiums designed by DDG to recall a bygone era.

The loftlike rental units at Glassworks Bushwick, a former glass factory from 1888, are the brainchild of design and development firm Ash, whereas another onetime factory, 90 Morton in the West Village, has a new lease on life: Gottesman Szmelcman Architecture and Leroy Street Studio converted the 1912 printing facility into a 35-unit boutique condo.
