129 Lafayette Street combines the spatial satisfaction of SoHo loft-living and the comfort of a full-service experience, both of which are largely sought after downtown. Each home is crafted out of this Frank H. Quinby-designed loft building, erected in 1911 and rising 12 stories above the intersection of Lafayette and Howard Streets
Quinbys design called for limestone from top to bottom, including detailed rustication on the first two stories, and a detailed corner entryway which later came to bear the name T.W. and C.B. Sheridan and Co. Theodore and Charles Sheridan were early book binding inventors and entrepreneurs, and their company occupied the much of the building from 1929-1956. The Sheridans were part of a long history of various typesetting and printing publications which operated here during the previous century. With such generous window proportions and such bright floors, its no wonder preeminent printing houses chose to call 129 Lafayette St home.
Converted into 27 residences during 2003-2005, these apartments offer a coveted amount of space, without leaving behind any modern amenities. 129 Lafayette Street is a full-service condominium with a 24-hour doorman and a common roof garden, which stands above almost every neighboring building. Residents also benefit from close proximity to SoHo, NoLita, The Bowery, and Tribeca. Six major subway lines (6/N/Q/R/J/Z) are just moments away from the buildings front door. Owners have access to storage units, as well as the ability to install a washer and dryer.
