NoHo Development Continues to Astound
With new buildings at 688 Broadway (entrance on Great Jones Alley), 10 Bond St., 366 Lafayette St., 45 Great Jones and significant restorations/renovations at 24 Bleecker, 36 Bleecker, 37 Great Jones, NoHo development has the eye and ears of a host of hopefuls who will, alas, have a hard time finding another niche in our famously edgy and historic neighborhood.
25 Great Jones/22 Bond St. – our friends at BKSK Architects have applied their magic touches to the “finger of NoHo.” Now 3-stories shorter (thank you, BSA) with a Bond St. address and main entrance to the residential units from Bond St., the Great Jones St. side will house ground-floor retail (no food and beverage) and has a street-wall matching the neighboring buildings on the block.
The Bond St. side will feature a 4-story screened wall through which one will see a garden and an elevated grove of trees. Below that to the right will be a street level window that will feature artworks. Both will be ambiently lit at night to highlight the Bond St. streetscape.
Lot line windows for the neighboring buildings on Bond St will be preserved. The west wall of the building will feature a full mural (no windows) by Jose Parla, internationally known but based in Brooklyn.
Altogether this is a a big Yeah! for NoHo and finally another unique and probably significant addition to our neighborhoods mystique.
