New York City; here comes 570 Broome!!

Within a year from now 570 Broome will open its doors as one of New York City’s finest luxury boutique condominiums. It will be offering one–to-three-bedroom luxury residences in the former Printing District in West Soho, now the have-to-be-there-location for retailers, restaurants and businesses and a highly sought-after residential neighborhood. If you want to live a luxury life in the middle of all New York City’s vibrant action, this is where you have to be!

Murat Agirnasli, one of the building’s developers said: “We worked to create a beautiful and modern design that pays homage to the neighborhood’s architectural heritage, while enhancing the character of the existing urban fabric.”

And that shows looking at the design of the façade of this 25-story building where Neolith sintered stone slabs, that clad the walls on all sides and frame three-story high expanses of glass, will be used. Tahir Demircioglu, who happens to be the founder of the boutique architectural firm Builtd, has designed the building. Builtd has unique expertise in high-end residential towers.

The inside stonework is imported from Greece and selected by Greek architect Spiros Soulis. It is needless to say they use the finest high quality raw materials. Because of the individual colorings of the stonework and quality characteristics it makes it a nature’s work of art.

For the interiors of the residences, award-winning architectural institution Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, known for some amazing and iconic buildings in the world like One World Trade Center and the Buri Khalifa in Dubai was assigned to do the designs of the interiors at 570 Broome and they did an amazing job as you can see in the pictures below.


You will notice the fully attended lobby and the private entry garden featuring a Japanese maple tree as a centerpiece. Just wonderful!


The finest quality materials will be used in the luxury homes. Hardwood solid oak floors with walnut finish, 10’9” foot ceilings and astonishing floor-to-ceiling windows flooding the apartments with natural light are key features in these luxury residences as well as custom designed Lineadecor kitchens with walnut-stained oak cabinets showcasing the wood’s natural beauty and seamlessly integrated state-of-the-art Miele appliances. And what to say about polished Calacatta Alto Slab marble countertops and backsplash providing a beautiful contrast to the texture and hue of millwork in the apartments.


The amenities are designed to connect residents and spaces and you will find a lounge area with a game room opening into a landscaped outdoor terrace. Spin classes can be had in the state-of-the-art fitness center and also there is a yoga studio. You can store your bike in the indoor bike storage and private storage units are available for purchase.

“With one year until occupancy, 570 Broome offers attainable prices that will appeal to a variety of buyers from young professionals to empty nesters to pied-à-terre buyers,” said Sean Murphy Turner, Director of Sales, Stribling Marketing Associates, the exclusive sales and marketing firm on the project.

West Soho has it all with its many boutiques, art galleries, nightlife hotspots, upscale cocktail bars and modern hotels like the Arlo Soho Hotel, with its rooftop terrace open year-round offering some of the most breathtaking views of the Hudson River, Paul’s Casablanca, an upscale nightclub with its luxurious Moroccan garden and the local favorite Lazy Point, a homey beach-inspired cocktail bar. 570 Broome is centrally located from Hudson River Park and popular down town neighborhoods like Tribeca, West Village and NoLita.

A luxury apartment in New York City designed by Robert Couturier

High above mediocrity and on the 52nd floor high above New York’s cityscape, world famous interior designer Robert Couturier has unleashed his fabulous interior design talents on this spacious apartment in the 252 East 57th Street building, located on much desired Billionaire’s Row. This luxury apartment building has been designed by acclaimed Daniel Romualdez, A100 and Robert Couturier.

The 3000+ square foot, 3 bed rooms, 3,5 bath rooms apartment has been transformed into a well-balanced luxury home filled with light as you can see in some interior images below. The interior looks grand!


Robert himself explained a bit about what he was envisioning for this apartment during the design process:

  • Instead of creating a contemporary apartment,” Robert explained, “we wanted to balance the modern and light-filled rooms with traditional fabrics and furniture placements.
  • On the mix of furniture and decor, he “used contemporary furniture interspersed with antiques and strong art pieces.” He felt that “the tension between the modern and customary made for more dynamic and interesting spaces.”
  • Working within the space, Robert tells us: “The living room does not have an obvious furniture placement as a typical living room would, so it was interesting to come up with different solutions and ultimately settle on the one we felt was best for the space.”



The apartment also features a south-facing balcony with a lot of privacy, 11’ ceilings in the living and dining room, huge windows to give you dramatic views stretching from the East River to Central Park, and white oak floors everywhere in the apartment. There is even a window in the kitchen.

The master bedroom is generous in size and has two large closets and en-suite bathroom with radiant heat floors. Also it features a custom 6’ bathtub and a beautiful separate glass-enclosed shower.

This amazing luxury residence is currently listed for $7.995 million.
