40 Bleecker the highly anticipated new luxury condominium project in Noho that boasts interiors by the AD100 designer Ryan Korban, has commenced sales. Located on the corner of Bleecker and Mulberry Streets, the 12-story ground-up condominium building includes 61 one-to-five-bedroom residences, an indoor 57-foot swimming pool, state-of-the-art exercise room and stretching studio, as well as white glove concierge service, a live-in superintendent and bicycle storage.
The architecture of the building, courtesy of Rawlings Architects, is the marriage of modern design with the distinction of buildings constructed a century ago. The striking brick and metal façade features punched glass window openings that are an important nod to the past and a reference to the historic, landmarked buildings within the surrounding NoHo neighborhood. Undulating in a step-like fashion at the top three penthouse levels and gently curving at its corners to maximize light and views, 40 Bleecker offers a boldly contemporary exterior design that matches the architecture of historically industrial pre-war buildings of its surroundings.
The AD100 designer Ryan Korban is well-known for his flagship luxury apparel stores (Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Aquazzura, Fivestory) and private homes for fashion designers, models, actors and other prominent cultural figures. The residences and shared spaces at 40 Bleecker, Korban’s first-ever residential development, demonstrate a level of fine bespoke detail and custom finishes unprecedented for a new development project of this size. The lobby of 40 Bleecker welcomes guests and residents with honed statuary marble and dove grey terrazzo flooring, offset by suede-paneled and Beauval limestone walls. The intimate seating area is furnished with two Korban-designed sofas and a custom-designed French limestone slab coffee table, all centered around a black marble fireplace lined in bronze.
The top floors of the building are occupied by six penthouses that feature private outdoor space, high ceilings, enormous banks of windows, and a richly layered palette of materials hand-selected by Ryan Korban. Each kitchen, outfitted with appliances by Miele, has been flawlessly designed to combine fine craftsmanship with sleek, modern technology. Waterfall-style islands in honed statuary marble along with book-matched marble hoods are complemented by elegant Italian cerused oak cabinetry with fluted bronze-colored glass and SA Baxter burnished nickel hardware.
Present throughout the residences and sourced from recycled wine barrels crafted by the finest tradesmen and artisans in northern Italy, is Listone Giordano French Oak chevron flooring. In the master baths, Korban has custom-designed the marble vanities that are surrounded by a reflective layer of mirror and glass to amplify both space and light. Echoing the adjacent living rooms, the master baths floors are decorated with Grigio dove and Calcutta moon light marble layered in a chevron pattern. A unique custom lighting design by Bill Schwinghammer illuminates the interiors.
40 Bleecker’s landscape architecture by esteemed AD100 designer Edmund Hollander, of Hollander Design, blends the boundaries between the interior and exterior. There is a 5,600 square foot courtyard garden that has been mindfully designed and thoughtfully appointed with lush, sustainably sourced greenery and seasonal flora. Punctuated by reflecting pools, Zen waterfalls and chevron paths, private seating groupings located throughout the garden adapt for both privacy and gathering.
