New York City architecture firm Gorman Architecture has built a six-story, six-bedroom, two-bath condo on a former warehouse that it claims is the largest building in the city.
Gorman Architects, the firm that is building the $4.3 million, three-bedroom apartment, has partnered with the New York Historical Society and other organizations to raise funds for the building.
The company is also designing a $2.2 million, five-story building, but its project isn’t going to be the biggest.
The company’s project, which it is calling the “Lucky House,” is expected to cost $5.5 million and will be built on top of the existing Lincolns building, which has a total of three floors, and will have five stories of rental apartments and one garage.
Goryan Goryak, the company’s vice president of development, said the goal was to create a “new urban neighborhood” where people can live in luxury.
The building will be about 50 percent smaller than the Lincoleons building.
The developer said the design was “based on a philosophy that all of New York can be more than the sum of its parts.”
The Lucky House will include about 200 parking spaces and will feature an outdoor courtyard.
“The building was designed to offer a sense of place and to connect people with their neighbors, who will have a much greater sense of belonging and connection to each other,” said Goryaks architect, Peter Goryas, in a statement.
“The project is also designed to be a model for multi-family housing, a project that has a long history in New York.”
According to the New Yorker, the Lucky House is scheduled to open in 2019 and will include retail, apartments, a hotel, restaurants and a restaurant, which will also be accessible to pedestrians, through a pedestrian walkway.
The project is being funded by a $500,000 grant from the American Institute of Architects.
