Inside the Gwathmey Seigel-Designed Soho Mews

The Observer got an inside look at the Gwathmey Siegel-designed Soho Mews project on Thursday, the United American Land project Curbed in June called "the most expensive and pedigreed new development that no one is talking about."

The project encompasses two nine-story buildings, with a shared garden in between, stretching from Wooster Street to West Broadway, between Grand and Canal streets (directly opposite the disappointingly Ramada-esque facade of the SoHo Grand).

The two buildings house 59 lofts, five townhouses and four penthouses, the largest of which has an asking price of $11.55 million. (The cheapest unit is a two-bedroom, 1,225-square-foot unit going for $2.33 million).

The two buildings, which are getting an inordinate amount of interest from Italian buyers, are a construction site, though work is scheduled for completion by the beginning of ’09, but we did get some passable shots of the facade and the awesome views from the penthouses.
