First Look at the Franklin Place Sales Office

Franklin Place sales officeThe folks from El Ad invited me to the Franklin Place sales office next to All Good Things for a pre-opening* visit. It’s a lovely space (formerly home to Antik/Hostler Burrows); I have to think businesses will be drooling over it—if Steven Alan isn’t already planning on a pet-supply shop there.

Franklin Place sales office interiorTo the left is a model of Franklin Place (a.k.a 371 Broadway), which was designed by ODA and will be 20 stories and have 53 units. You get a much better sense of its shape from the model than from the renderings posted on Curbed the other day. Here it is from the northwest (the street to the left is White; the one with the sculpture is Franklin Place, the alley that runs between White and Franklin). Click to enlarge.

Franklin Place model from BroadwayThe Broadway side will be commercial (residences start on the second floor), because of course the entrance is on Franklin Place. It’ll be set back 34 feet from the street, like the Crosby Street Hotel:

The model also offered a good sense of the façade, which will be a brick that’s more gray than black (as it has appeared in renderings), with attractive curved frames on the sides without lot-line windows. Ceilings are 9’2″ on floors 2-14, 10’2″ on floors 15-19, and 12’5″ on the 20th floor. The windows start two feet from the floor in most apartments, going all the way to ceiling—and they’re floor-to-ceiling when they face outdoor space.

And here’s what the rooftop pool deck—with cabanas and grills—will look like, according to the model. (My being tall means that not everyone gets this view.)

More than a third of the units are already in contract, including all five of the studios. And the building is only five stories complete….
