THE POLICE BUILDING, 240 Centre St, 5H - SoHo - Nolita, New York

THE POLICE BUILDING, 240 Centre St, 5H - SoHo - Nolita, New York

 

240 Centre Street, formerly the New York City Police Headquarter building, between Broome & Grand Streets in the Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan, was built in 1905-1909 and was designed by the firm Hoppin & Koen. It housed the headquarters of the New York City Police Department from 1909-1973 and was converted into luxury residences in 1988 by the firm Ehrenkranz Group & Eckstut. Today it stands as one of downtown's most iconic addresses offering residents the highest level of quality living in a historic building.

Architecturally magnificent and visually stunning, the former gymnasium of the classic Beaux-Arts style building was transformed into a stunning contemporary one-of-a-kind 6,600 square foot, four bedroom residence by the famed late architect Charles Gwathmey. It was the only apartment he ever designed from the ground up, and required over four years to complete. The home, comprised of the fifth and sixth floors, seamlessly integrates contemporary aesthetics with modern conveniences all while preserving the integrity of this historical treasure.

On the main level of this expansive home, a grand entrance foyer with onyx powder room leads to an impressive and massive great room that hosts multiple sitting and dining areas. Limestone floors and subtle Venetian plaster walls are complimented by the soaring 25 foot barrel-vaulted ceilings that are punctuated by three skylights, terra cotta tiling and exposed steel tresses. Through double doors, the kitchen is truly chef's grade with double Viking wall ovens, Viking Stove, two Traulsen refrigerators, double Miele dishwashers, multiple sinks, a custom Winekeeper and 80+ bottle wine cellar within the adjacent laundry and has a separate staff entrance. Off the kitchen, a private terrace offers the perfect setting for al fresco dining alongside the beautiful architectural detail of the building and skyline views of SoHo.

The first floor master bedroom corner suite encompasses the entire eastern wing of this level and offers bright Southern and Eastern exposures. Accessible by two entrances an oak-plank framed radial glass floor from the library above is one of the focal points of this quiet retreat that is complete with a private office, custom outfitted dressing room and walk-in closets, dual onyx bathrooms and a private sauna. Up the distinctive staircase is an open study or library that "floats" above the master suite and overlooks the voluminous lower level great room. Three additional bedrooms and two full baths complete this level that has a separate entrance from the sixth floor.

The landmarked Police Building has an opulent marble lobby with exquisite detail and offers a 24-hour concierge and doorman, live-in resident manager, fully equipped fitness center and beautiful common English Garden with fountain.
