BACK ON THE MARKET
This renovated corner apartment overlooks all of Greenwich Village proper. Perched atop the historic building, The Albert, one-time home to Jim Morrison, Joni Mitchel, and other famous artists of the Village scene and designed by architect, Henry J. Hardenbergh, whose other iconic structures include the Dakota and the Plaza; this home sits on the northeast corner above 11th street and University Place. This lofted Jr. 1-bed apartment is a truly unique space with infinite possibilities including an undeveloped private roof terrace. The overall ceiling height reaches approximately 18’ feet and is currently built out as a main-level with generous 9’5” ceilings, featuring a large living room/dining room space with a renovated kitchen and windowed bath; and above this, is a full-height (7’5”) lofted bedroom that easily accommodates a queen-sized bed and opens onto a large (10’ x 16’3”) terrace with sweeping views that include the Empire State building; all of downtown; and as far west as the eye can see.
The possibilities are endless as there are board-approved initial design plans for the expansion of the upper loft for access onto the terrace. The kitchen features a Liebherr stainless steel refrigerator and polished concrete countertops with a Carrara marble slab backsplash. Ample storage has been worked into the space and an adjoining closet area can be converted into an additional storage closet or a laundry room, as the building does allow in-home washer/dryers. The bright, windowed bathroom has been updated with a porcelain sink and vanity among classic subway tiles.
The full-time doorman building is a true jewel, only a few years away from having its underlying mortgage paid off, it fronts the entire block of University Place between Tenth and Eleventh Streets; and features a beautiful landscaped roof top deck that spans the full building. The roof deck is meticulously maintained and boasts a community garden, string lights, lounge furniture and free wifi. Building amenities also include a bike storage room, laundry room, grocery cold storage and BuildingLink. The residents of the Albert love the organized community events including summer roof deck parties and Halloween trick-or-treating for kids, “The events in the building are one of the main reasons that made us stay on for so long.”
