Excavation has begun at 10 Bond Street, which will soon be home to a seven-story mix of residential and retail space. Designed by the consistently fantastic Annabelle Selldorf, Curbed has the details from the building’s progression through the approval process – the final product will be clad in a mix of terracotta tile and Corten steel.
Mixing classic and forward-thinking materials is quite bold, though the building will still look contextual to its NoHo surroundings, and both terracotta and Corten are becoming trendy for new facades in New York City – especially among luxury developments. Terracotta’s resurgence is most notable in Stern’s soon-to-be 111 West 57th Street, while Corten’s poster-child is the Barclay’s Center, as well as The New School’s addition at 65 Fifth Avenue.
Permits for 10 Bond Street indicate the structure will hold ten units, and though no signs have been posted indicating a completion date, the lot’s small size should signal a relatively brief construction timeframe. The small number of units also signals the building’s ’boutique’ status, and if it hasn’t sold-out already, it will soon.
SK Development’s page on 10 Bond has additional information on the project, though whether the building is completed by spring remains to be seen. Most interesting of all is Gene Kaufman’s involvement, and it is surprising and refreshing to see the architect working on a project that is actually attractive.
