Among the brick lofts and nineteenth-century buildings in SoHo, Urban Glass House stands out as a modernly-constructed Manhattan condominium. Designed by world-renowned architect Philip Johnson, this 12-story building presents a facade of glass cubes with a gorgeous asymmetrical composition. This modern structure is home to 40 equally elegant units.
Each of the apartments has been constructed with floor-to-ceiling windows, paired with ten-foot ceilings and open floor plans. Other details were designed by another renowned architect, Annabelle Selldorf. There are renovated kitchens with small incandescent pendant-shaped lights accentuating black granite counters. The bathrooms vary from either a limestone or marble bathroom. They have different fixtures with a contrasting light and dark theme throughout.
Other amenities in the units include the spacious closets (including a walk-in closet), stackable washers and dryers and radiant heating. Penthouse apartments are available on the 12th floor of the building.
The lobby is staffed with a full-time doorman and a concierge. A superintendent, as well as handymen and porters, are on the premises to assist. Other amenities include a well-equipped fitness room, a yoga room, storage bins, and a bike room.
Located at the crossroads of SoHo, the west Village, and Tribeca, the building is close to shopping and dining areas. Subway lines are also conveniently located a few blocks away.
