Serene Starchitect Tadao Ando Enters Manhattan's Glassy Condo Scene

New, 1 comment

Of the new developments coming to New York City, one of the most closely watched is Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando's first ever standalone building in New York City, a seven-story building with just seven condos at 152 Elizabeth Street in Nolita. A few images and details have been revealed, but today, the New York Times brings the first full rendering of the project, along with lots of interior details. The Times describes the design as "classic Tadao Ando," calling it "a glass jewel box suspended in poured-in-place concrete." Half-floor homes will start at $6 million, full floors at $15 million, while the most expensive home will ask more than $35 million.
