There’s something ethereal about this co-op, now up for rent at 57 Thompson Street in Soho. Maybe it’s the artwork, or the exposed brick that’s been painted white, or the nine-foot ceilings, or the treetop views from the big windows. Simply put, we believe the listing when it says this two-bedroom apartment has a dreamy, peaceful quality to it.

To create The Residences at Prince Street in Soho, Time Equities and Hamlin Ventures renovated the old St. Patrick’s Cathedral School into seven condos starting at $7.74 million. The placement of the windows on the landmarked facade “had certain implications for the layouts,” says Time Equities director Roberta Axelrod.

One recent morning Erik Harrison, a vice president of the Patrinely Group, stopped by 535W43, a rental complex nearing completion that his company is developing with the USAA Real Estate Company between 10th and 11th Avenues in Manhattan. But it wasn’t the 280 units in the two 14-story brick towers designed by CetraRuddy that were on his mind.
The luxury residences being built in what used to be St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral School in New York City will be modern, energy-efficient homes on the inside—but retain historic landmark status on the outside.
The property, to be known as The Residences at Prince, is just one of hundreds of old buildings around the world being transformed into luxurious yet ecologically responsible homes.
The high-profile conversion of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral School into seven (expensive) condos accompanied by two townhouses has reached yet another milestone. Sales launched this morning, bringing the condos onto the market from a not-insubstantial $7.74 million. The launch doesn’t bring any new renderings—those showed up in early March—but does reveal the full pricing spectrum of the development, where nearly each condo has a unique floorplan and is asking between $7.74 million for the 3BR/3BA 3A to $13.1 million for the 4BR/4.5BA penthouse. The townhouses have yet to hit the market, but will ask $25 million when they do.
The weather is turning warmer and flowers are finally in bloom, which can only mean one thing: spring has arrived. And that can only mean one thing: it’s time to look at the many, many, many apartments—both rentals and condos—that will be hitting New York’s real estate market in the next few months. Across more than 40 developments, there are starchitect-designed condos (your Selldorfs, Sterns, and Pianos among them) and super-pricey, family-friendly apartments, along with under-the-radar outer-borough rentals and apartments that are deemed “affordable luxury.” It’s a lot to take in, and as always, if we missed anything, the tipline is right this way.
Super high-end condos may grab the headlines, but single-family homes still retain their classic appeal.
“It’s a unique buyer that buys a townhouse versus another condo or co-op,” Corcoran broker Timothy Scott said. “That’s what makes townhouses special—there are only a handful of them.”
The former St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral School is on its way to becoming a fancy condo complex.
A little more than a year after the first renderings appeared for the condo conversion at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral School, a full website for the development has launched, revealing both pricing for the project, as well as a plethora of new renderings. Those images show off the interiors of the project’s seven condos, as well as those for the $25 million townhouse that will sit at the complex’s northeast corner.
