NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Originally constructed in 1894, the McKim, Mead & White architectural masterpiece at 108 Leonard in Tribeca has been meticulously restored to its original glory, with development managed by Elad Group, one of the nation’s leading real estate companies. Transformed into an elegant condominium, the building will house more than 150 luxurious residences within the landmarked Italian Renaissance Revival-style exterior. Sales are officially underway at 108 Leonard with Douglas Elliman Development Marketing exclusively leading sales and marketing.
The ornamental majesty of 108 Leonard offers dramatic details of scale, proportion and volume paired with contemporary interior design by award-winning hospitality design firm Jeffrey Beers International. In an homage to the most coveted elements of classic Renaissance revival architecture, 108 Leonard’s dramatic detail of scale, proportion and volume is a formidable presence in the Tribeca landscape.
Residents will enjoy an exceptional arrival through one of the building’s three entrances that feature opulent architectural details, many of which are landmarked such as the marble pillars, double staircase and landmarked chandelier that adorn the magnificent Leonard Street lobby. Homeowners may also enter through the building’s private, covered motor reception, clad in Belgian block flooring and ivory quarry pavers with valet attendant.
“Our goal with 108 Leonard was to pair this romantic structure’s elegant bones and extraordinary proportions with distinctly modern, finely-detailed interiors that allow for a refined living experience,” said Samantha Sax, chief marketing and design officer at Elad Group. “Elegant 21st century design elements, massive architectural windows and incredible ceiling heights are just a few of the features that make 108 Leonard truly unique and irreplaceable.”
World-renowned SLCE Architects was enlisted as the architect of record for the beloved landmark, which celebrates a gilded bygone era.
“We have already seen strong interest from buyers, as they immediately recognize that purchasing at 108 Leonard is a rare opportunity to own a residence housed within one of New York City’s most coveted landmarks,” said Susan de França, president and CEO at Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. “The property’s iconic architecture, proportion and scale, and expansive amenities are unmatched. It’s a very special offering for Tribeca.”
In a nod to this distinguished Italian Renaissance building and its Parisian counterparts, Jeffrey Beers International’s design juxtaposes classic details— oversized moldings and chevron-patterned oak floors —with contemporary touches. These elegant residences, priced from $1,535,000 to over $20 million, will range in size from one- to four-bedrooms.
With a bevy of hidden retreats spanning over 20,000 square feet, 108 Leonard’s amenities will provide a private escape in Tribeca, including indoor and outdoor spaces that cater to fitness, wellness, entertainment, and relaxation.
108 Leonard is located in the vibrant Tribeca neighborhood, sought-after for its historic architecture that has come to define Downtown with lofty buildings that reflect its heritage. For more information, please visit www.108Leonard.com.
