Three years ago, the Tribeca Citizen spotted plans to convert the rundown industrial building at 28 North Moore Street into apartments. Now YIMBY has the first look at the revamped seven-story warehouse between Hudson and Varick Streets, courtesy of developer Valyrian Capital.
The building will have seven condos spread across 21,759 square feet of residential space, for average units measuring 3,100 square feet. The ground floor will host 1,332 square feet of retail and one apartment, followed by six full-floor units. Each of the full-floor apartments will have three bedrooms and three baths.
Condo owners will have access to storage, a recreation room, and a gym in the cellar, as well as a shared roof deck.
Thomas O’Hara’s HTO Architects are supervising the renovation. Valyrian Capital appears to be partnering with the developers listed on the permit, Imian Partners, who are based in New Canaan, Connecticut.
The owner, George Moscahlades, has held onto the 23,000-square-foot building since 1985. It was once home to his family’s import business, Moscahlades Bros. Inc., but the company has long since relocated to Paterson, N.J.
The Department of Buildings approved a fresh set of permits for the conversion in September, and it looks like work has happened on and off over the last two years.
The building sits inside the Tribeca West Historic District, and Landmarks greenlighted plans for interior construction back in 2012. Hopefully the developers plan to restore and repoint the attractive brick facade, which features arched windows and iron details. The property is a former cold storage warehouse that dates back to the 1880s, per the LPC’s designation report.
