History

Neo-Renaissance in style, it was designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh, and built in 1900–01 by George A. Fuller Co. for the Importer's Building Company. The 12-story building was converted from office space into 47 condominiums in 1999 by developer Yitzchak Tessler to designs by Karl Fischer and Alan Ritchie, at which time a duplex penthouse was added. The common areas were designed by Jay Valgora of the Walker Group/CNI.[1][2][3][4][5]

The building is part of the Tribeca East Historic District, which was designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission on December 8, 1992.[2] The building was originally called the "Importer's Building" and typically contained the offices and showrooms of dry goods firms.[2] It is decorated with mementos of the American textile industry. The building's facade is adorned with six representations of Caduceus, a winged staff entwined by a pair of snakes. There are also eight cartouches.[4]

Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten bought an apartment in the building in April 2001 for $2.62 million, which he then sold in 2004 to Hiromi Go, a Japanese pop star, for approximately $3.25 million.[4]
