40 Mercer Residences is a collaboration between hotelier André Balazs and Paris-based architect Jean Nouvel. This 15-story building in Soho will offer 40 lofts (averaging 2,800 sf), a spa, pool and retail space. The modern glass exterior will mirror the neighborhood’s classic architecture in a beautiful way. According to Balazs, its style will be “brilliantly contextual, tough and strong like Soho”.

“The qualities that make the neighborhood attractive and fashionable are captured in the design and concept of 40 Mercer,” says Balazs. “One of the principal features of Soho is the sense of light and air – a function of its landmark status, which keeps buildings low and blocks short – making it a singularly pleasant place to live. 40 Mercer will be the tallest building in the neighborhood, and will include parking. It’ll have full concierge service, room service at breakfast, personal shopping and dog walking.” Sale prices have not yet been set.

LEGEND HAS IT

Completed in 1884, the Dakota is arguably the most famous residential building in New York City. It’s an oasis of luxury apartments combining space, privacy and intimacy. This seven-room spread features amazing Central Park vistas from balconies attached to the two master suites, 2.5 bths including an onyx master bath with heated floor, an enormous living room, state-of-the-art marble and granite chef’s kitchen with separate breakfast room, formal dining room, media room/den with its own park-view balcony, and six wood-burning fireplaces in original bronze and marble.

“This is an opportunity to own a piece of New York history that you won’t find anywhere else,” says Alison Powers, licensed real estate salesperson at Citi Habitats. “This property has been restored to absolute original detail, including many artifacts and fixtures. You feel that you’re in a home and not an apartment building.” List price is $18.5 million.

“What has always made for a fashionable address still holds true,” says architect Costas Kondylis of Costas Kondylis and Partners. “That is quality services, proximity to landmarks and civic gems such as Central Park, and unique architecture like the industrial chic of Tribeca or some of the more notable Fifth Avenue buildings. It’s all about the energy of a beautiful setting.”
