Manhattan is in the midst of a building boom with world-renowned architects crafting luxury residences, each with a unique design. And 40 Bleecker in the NoHo neighborhood is the latest to reveal its collection of model residences that take cues from fashion and travel.
The three uniquely curated apartments came to life thanks to celeb-go-to interior designer Ryan Korban and international design and strategy firm Colony. Wanting to complement the building's downtown grit, stunning design, and timeless glamour, they opted to highlight moments in fashion history, including Tokyo in the 80s by Rei Kawakubo, Paris in the 20s by Coco Chanel, and London in the 70s.
The Tokyo-inspired apartment features details like Bec Brittain's Shy 17 chandelier, Studio Paolo Ferrari's Facet Mirror, and Demuro Das' Emil Centre table. Sweeping hues of nickel, grey, and blue can be found throughout. It also boasts a set of vintage Anton Lorenz for Thonet chairs upholstered in white sheepskin, a Monolith Slab coffee table by Phaedo, and a navy blue Pool Rugby Grain Design, while wallpaper by Flat Vernacular highlight each bedroom.
Inside the Paris-themed unit, it's all about the timeless elegance of Coco Chanel. There are art deco elements like hexagonal brass insets of KWH Furniture's oak Etagere, the curved legs of Vonnegut/Kraft's Releve table, and luxe linens from Sferra. Meanwhile, the London residence is on the opposite end of the spectrum. It features more rebellious details like a vintage red leather Percival Lafer sofa, textile art by Hiroko Takeda, and cast bronze of the Nami Cabinet by Demuro Das.
These three residences vary in size and price and are meant to showcase the 61 one-to-five bedroom residences' versatility within the building. All the units have high ceilings and enormous banks of windows, as well as access to a landscaped 5,600-square-foot sculpture garden designed by one of the world's leading landscape architects, Edmund Hollander.
"We are excited to unveil a collection of exclusive model residences that emulate the chic downtown style that NoHo represents, and are thrilled to be working with Jean Lin and the team at Colony to offer a one-of-a-kind vision for 40 Bleecker," Raymond Chalmé, CEO and Principal of Broad Street Development, told Departures in a statement. "Their design exhibition is a celebration of global and local artisans that cohesively comes together to complement this rare blue-chip building, and we're proud to partner with celebrated New York atelier and support our great city businesses."
Pricing ranges from $3.6 million to $5.7 million for the three internationally-inspired units, and other remaining units in the building start at $3.365 million.
