Lately, Trophy residences that offer astounding views have become more and more popular in New York City. The best part of these types of buildings is that they have private-tinted windows that allow you to admire the entire metropolis. BLUE at 105 Norfolk St features kitchen spaces that look like as if they were created especially for a chef, thanks to its professional-grade Viking appliances. The bathrooms are also wonderful and they have either a double shower or a deep soaking tub. Such an exclusive condo also respects the environment and it is built from energy efficient materials.
BLUE was built in 2007, and today it is one of the most appreciated architectural pieces in the United States. The architect of the condo was Bernard Tschumi, who has a unique point of view and thus, he managed to come up with such an imposing architectural milestone. The striking edifice has many exceptional features such as:
- bike room
- full-time doorman
- 8000 square feet of terraces
About a third of the total number of apartments was sold with prices varying between $750,000 and $4,000,000. Bernard Tschumi, the designer of the remarkable building, was also the creator of other famous projects such as: Park Vilette in Paris or the Vacheron Constantin in Geneva, Switzerland. The designer was also the dean of architecture of the Columbia University, between 1988 and 2003.
The general aspect of “Blue” is extremely appreciated due to its unusual look. It has a gorgeous façade made of blue glass, which is decorated with geometrical figures. Norfolk Hudson LLP is the developer of Blue. The building will be also very secure because of the full-time doorman. In fact, this is the only building on the Lower East Side with this feature. Apart from this, it also has floor-to-ceiling windows, bamboo floors, individual storage units, and a residential communal outdoor space.
Clients will be welcomed in by bamboo trees and large rocks, placed in a special way. Kitchens will have very unique features too, with glass-fronted cabinets. All bathrooms have large raised sinks and beautiful pebbled floors. The project from the Norfolk Street is placed near another astounding condominium project, called the Switch. This is situated on the 109 Norfolk Street and it has 7 floors that are still under construction. The zig-zag floors and the lovely façade decorated with gentle angles are created by the architects. From this condo you can admire the great red-brick Asian Americans for Equality Community center situated on 111 Norfolk street.
“Blue” is the most important project from a series of new buildings built on Norfolk Street. The best part of this project is that it offers great views over other incredible structures. For example, it is situated near the “Switch” designed by Narchitects and placed on the 109 Norfolk. Also, “Blue” is near The Hotel of Rivington Street, which is a choice made by many important business men. It’s certainly a dream come true to live in a BLUE condo. The beautiful panoramas, the closeness to the city’s main attractions, and the luxurious amenities, will convince you that buying such an apartment is an excellent idea.
