Looking at the future luxurious corners of Lafayette Street

[February 2009]

The west side of Lafayette between Great Jones and Bond will soon be home to two luxury residential buildings… The former tenants of these corners, the ZP Auto Repair Shop and a parking lot, are long gone.

First, allow us a moment of silence for the wall above this space that brought us Harrison Ford's giant head

… and Claire Forlani's disembodied scotch ad hands

[Head bowed]


The new buildings are apparently going up simultaneously … already up to the second level in spots… (these photos are from Saturday)…

There is 372 Lafayette St. …

… and 10 Bond St.

The first units in No. 10 hit the market earlier in the month … Curbed pointed out a 2,775-square-foot home for $6.9 million … and for the more budget-minded, an 1,866-square-foot residence for $5.3 million.

Or enough of the solipsistic, woo-ing, clueless shitheads who move into 'em.

I've been saying for years: "This neighborhood is starved for luxury housing! Wish they hadn't taken me seriously.

On a positive note, that eyesore of a garage (that always looked more like a junkyard) is gone, along with all the (presumably illegally) parked cars on the sidewalk, and those obnoxious advertisements will be no more.

This area has been the target of developers like Ian Schrager for several years now, I didn't expect public housing here and as far as luxury condo's go these designs at least fit the character of the area, be grateful these are not more damn hotels.
