Situated across the street from the New Museum, 250 Bowery is an eight-story building with 24 condominium units that include duplex penthouses, rooftop gardens, and ground-level retail space. The design was conceived of
as a contemporary loft building with a façade of factory-sash, floor-to-ceiling windows framed with wide-flanged, powder-coated aluminum steel beams and columns. The sober façade stands in striking contrast to the hodgepodge mix of nineteenth-century tenements and commercial brick buildings that line the street. The design is the result of collaboration between MA and Aldo Andreoli.
