Products of Morris Adjmi Architects can be spotted around the city. As diverse as the locations of these constructions are, the style of each building carries its own unique appeal.
Adjmi has a number of buildings in the works between Manhattan and Brooklyn, including 138 North 10th Street in Williamsburg, which has new renderings, and Tribeca’s 290 West Street, a building that has recently had its windows installed and has the majority of its apartments in contract.
But if waiting isn’t your kind of game, there are a number of buildings designed by Morris Adjmi Architects for you to look into. Here are a few picks of the litter.
11 North Moore Street is a great location for the movie buff, being located across the street from the fire station present in the Ghostbusters films. But the spot it currently occupies was less than stellar, having been a parking lot for a number of years. Now, 11 Moore Street is a nine-floor, luxury residential building donned in limestone and black granite, floor-to-ceiling windows, and high ceilings.
A short walk to the Hudson River and a close neighbor to Soho, the area surrounding 11 North Moore Street is quite expansive. With its selection of parks, museums, restaurants, and nightlife stretched out, this is a location that encourages you to walk and enjoy the Tribeca streets.
While many buildings are being renovated from old factories into luxury homes, this condominium, a collaboration between Morris Adjmi and Aldo Andreoli, was simply designed for a factory look. It is the only mixed-use building on the list, as it includes retail space on the ground floor, in addition to the numerous retail boutiques and major retail brands in the area.
250 Bowery is also centered well among a selection of art galleries and most notably, the New Museum, which can be found just across the street from the building.
Tall, thin, and glassy may be a type of new construction ideal in New York City, but Adjmi’s 16 West 21st Street shows exactly how you can reinvent the concept and make it fit into the historical context of the surrounding neighborhood. With a façade made entirely of glass materials, the building may not rival a skyscraper as it only rises to 14 stories, but its thin stature fits perfectly into the once-vacant space in the Flatiron’s Ladies Mile Historic District.
A collaboration with fashion designer Zac Posen, 16 West 21st Street’s Flatiron location means it’s conveniently located near bustling neighborhoods such as Chelsea and Greenwich Village. In immediate proximity are a number of retail stores and restaurants, Madison Square Park, and some of the city’s most convenient subway lines.
The Emory may exist on one of the most underrated blocks within Chelsea. Between 5th and 6th Avenues, 27 West 19th Street — which is just two blocks from 16 West 21st Street — falls perfectly near a wide variety of shopping options and restaurants that includes two Spanish, one Italian, and one British on the same street and side of the residence.
As Madison Square Park falls to its north and Union Square Park to its south, residents enjoy being close to the city’s most convenient subway lines.
In many ways, the Schumacher may be one of the poster children for Morris Adjmi constructions. While 250 Bowery, which is close in proximity, was designed to give off the converted factory style, the Schumacher was entirely restored into 20 condominium and mansion residences from the printing building it once was. Work on the façade began once the greenlight was given by the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission, in which the building’s exterior was completely designed to resemble its original, Romanesque Revival-style features.
The Schumacher fits comfortably into Noho’s architectural heritage. Boarded by Soho and Nolita, this is another Morris Adjmi building that promises a plethora of retail and gastronomic destinations to choose from.
