The Greenwich Lane Building has just entered the market and is already selling fast. Located in one of Manhattan’s most sought after neighborhoods, The Greenwich Lane is comprised of five buildings offering both condominiums and townhouses and combining old world New York style with modern living and amenities. The Greenwich Lane is a stunning example of LEED-certified reconstruction as well as new building materials for a welcome addition to the neighborhood. With visionary architecture from FXFOWLE and interior design by Thomas O’Brien, The Greenwich Lane is a prime example of modern luxury living at its best.
Located in the space that formerly made up St. Vincent’s in the Village, at Twelfth and Eleventh Streets off Seventh Avenue, The Greenwich Lane was an eagerly anticipated project that has finally gone live and one building is already sold out. Making the project especially unique is the private garden, shared by all the buildings and a cheery spot of green right outside, away from the streets. Each building is uniquely designed; some are entirely new construction, including the tallest building, while others rely on existing materials.
Interior designer Thomas O’Brien is renowned in the design world and The Greenwich Lane marks his first foray into residential design. Each building has a different and unique interior, with custom touches and features.
Great effort was made to ensure that each residence has its own look and feel, from layout to fixtures, to ensure a custom feeling. Using the bones of the building to determine a time and place, luxury materials such as marble, mosaic, wood and fine metalwork influence the design.
Drawing each unique building together is the community garden, designed by M. Paul Friedberg & Partners. The community garden is done in a park-style, with three vistas as well as a reflecting pool and limestone benches. The natural landscape is not only beautiful but helps to filter out the grit of the city by giving the neighborhood more trees.
Building amenities are designed with socializing in mind. There’s a private lounge, a guest chef’s kitchen, a catering kitchen and a screening room, which can all be reserved singly or combined for your events. Designed by Thomas O’Brien, the spaces have the same feel of an Old World private club. Not forgetting the kids, there is a playroom designed by award-winning Roto Group. Suitable for children ages 2-12, the light-filled space includes a book tower and lots of storage space for toys and crafts.
The fitness center is a true stand out. A full floor down a grand staircase leads to a stunning 25-meter swimming pool with separate hot tub. A mosaic ceiling and a glass partition separate the magnificent centerpiece from two custom fitness studios perfect for yoga or private training, as well as a golf simulator. There are also private wellness rooms that can be booked for various spa treatments. The professional fitness center was designed by The Wright Fit.
Residents have access to a wide range of services, including 24-hour attended lobbies, refrigerated delivery storage, private on-site parking, Lutron’s system-enabled Homeworks QS dimmers and switches, on-site laundry facilities, service entrances and more.
The Greenwich Lane is part of a new effort at sustainable design in New York City. All buildings are LEED-certified and have sustainable features including: electric vehicle charging stations in the garage, secure bicycle storage, stormwater collection, landscape designed to help control climate, water-efficient fixtures and high efficiency LED lighting by Thomas O’Brien, recycled and local building materials, wood products responsibly harvested, adhesives, paints, flooring, and substrates are all low-emission.Each building has it’s own unique offerings to fit in with every lifestyle, from The Townhouses equipped with private elevators to the contemporary glass tower of 155 West Eleventh Street.
