With its instantly-recognizable organic form, Charles Gwathmey's Astor Place, completed in 2006, is one of a crop of new developments that have vaulted downtown Manhattan living to a new level of extravagance'and architectural interest'that had been missing from the city for quite some time. The downtown Manhattan intersection where Cooper Square, Astor Place, Lafayette Street and Bowery meet is shaping up to be the city's first 21st century showcase for modern architecture. Though the NoHo area has long been a coveted spot for developers of high-profile designer residences, the skyline-stealing impact of what has become Manhattan's newest architects' alley has been more recent.With its undulating plan, this residential tower is one of the city's most distinctive. The 21-story, 270-foot-high building contains 39 apartments; the curved glass facades of what the architect has referred to as "Sculpture for Living" have blue-tinted floor-to-ceiling windows, and residents and guests enter through a 25-foot-high lobby. Penthouses offer keyed elevator access, terraces and fireplaces, and all apartments have two or three exposures, individually controlled heating and air-conditioning and a washer and dryer. Building amenities include a full-time doorman, a concierge, a garden and a garage. The Astor Place neighborhood is one of downtown Manhattan's most exciting hubs with the city's top universities, theaters, restaurants, cultural and architectural landmarks, food and fashion shops and internationally noted destination hotels as well as numerous transportation options all within blocks.
