169 Hudson Street, known as The Roebling Building condominium was a conversion in 2000 into 12 luxury condominium lofts 2 per floor, with 2 duplex penthouse homes that epitomizes the Tribeca loft living dream. Built originally in 1893 as a warehouse by Architect James Edward Ware, 169 Hudson Street is located in Tribeca’s Historic District and today is a prized landmarked Tribeca condo.
As is typical of the history rich area, the building still bares the historic Roebling name in brass lettering atop the building today, after John August Roebling “the Brooklyn Bridge’s designer and the engineer” took over the building back in 1912 to use as a warehouse for his wire rope and steel cable manufacturing business.
Rich with Pre-war detail and character missed today you will notice standing in front of the building the row of columns and pillars framing the buildings top line of windows, magnificently done brick work with brick arches around the large oversized windows and detail rich cast ironwork, braces and cables holding up the buildings awning. A true site to see and enjoy!
Further details and plans included the interior courtyard 30 by 40 foot, smartly created to bring more light into the middle of the building, thus bringing in more light to the ultra finished luxury lofts. This brilliant and key design thought, made the homes brighter and more functional.
The individual homes are spacious lofts ranging from 4,400 SF, with the duplex penthouses approximately 6,450 SF, all individually designed and feature private keyed elevator, high beamed-ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, oversized windows and state of the art kitchens, and much-much more. The building amenities further include 24hour doorman, full time super, gym, private basement storage, and a wine cellar with a tasting room.
For the individual that wants to live the true Tribeca historic loft dream in larger loft space not easily found, merged with today’s technology. Located in the heart and some of the most sought after cobblestone streets that Tribeca has to offer.
