Little Italy parking garage will receive a 'superstructure' residence with squash court

During an early-morning walk down Mulberry Street Sunday before the Feast, I stopped to look at the parking garage here between Prince and Spring ... As far as parking garages go, this one has a nice, um, Little Italy feel to it...

Curious about the address, I did a little research ... Well! I learned that the building is for sale:

Massey Knakal has been exclusively retained for the sale of 224 Mulberry. This once in a lifetime opportunity to develop a premier single family residence, boutique condominium, retail flagship or exclusive office. 224 Mulberry, in the heart of chic SOHO/Nolita, offers the opportunity that is almost impossible to find in New York City. Simply put, where in New York City can one find on-site parking, a protected panoramic view that is unique to the neighborhood, and 75 feet of width, all in one building?

And the rendering on file:

According to a video from the construction manager of the project:

The new luxury residence features a family and chef’s kitchen, squash court, 5 bathrooms, a private elevator, multiple terraces and many more high-end residential features and finishes. Specified items include a Shuco curtain wall system, a Levolux louver screen and Trespa paneling for the exterior.

One especially interesting engineering detail allows the new building superstructure to rest on isolation pads in order to minimize the transfer of vibration and noise from the parking garage below, which will remain in operation once the project is complete.

Here's the video that explains how all this is going to work ...

And luxury housing reaches a whole new absurd level...

Grub Street finds, shoots (his photo!) Spots

On Mulberry...Daniel Maurer has the scoop. But was there a reward?

Previously on EV Grieve:
Unlucky dog?

He was spotted, so to speak, by two of our commenters/fellow bloggers...and I didn't get around to doing a follow-up...

I don't think it's the same dog, but there's one like it on Mulberry Street over the door to an Italian place. Careful to whoever's calling Mulberry above Canal "Chinatown": those kind of words could still get you hurt!

I am sure it's the same one. My camera battery died on me during Chinese New Years, but Mulberry Street sounds exactly right. How many big brown dogs perched over a canopy can there possibly be in one small town?
