The sidewalk shed has come down at 10 Bond, a seven-story residential co-op from developers SK Development, Ironstate Development, and the Chetrit Group. This block long stretch of Lafayette Street has seen two new residential developments completed in the same year, as the adjacent 372 Lafayette rental building opens its doors as well. Clad in shaped, glazed terracotta panels, the building seeks to be contemporary yet respectful of its historic, mostly masonry surroundings in NoHo. Selldorf Architects' design includes a gridded facade of terracotta and large windows, with a setback penthouse and rooftop terrace on the seventh floor. A steel trellis caps the top of the building, providing a planted sunscreen that completes the tripartite composition of the facade.
Architect: Selldorf Architects; Developers: SK Development, Ironstate Development, and the Chetrit Group; Program: Residential, Retail; Location: NoHo, New York, NY; Completion: 2015.
