Hubert Street Mansion Approved

11 Hubert rendering largeCurbed reports that the Landmarks Preservation Commission signed off on the design for the single-family mansion at 11 Hubert. Designed by architects Maya Lin and William Bialosky, the six-story building will have an exterior “made of Chelmsford stone (from Massachusetts), stainless steel, perforated metal, and glass.”

Last month, the Tribeca Trib reported that “its floor plans call for 11 bathrooms, five bedrooms (including two guest rooms), a dog room, separate prep and catering kitchens, wine closet and two bars, screening room, his-and-her studies, fully landscaped courtyard, 5,000-square-foot sports and fitness center in the basement, and a garage.”

Here’s how the building will look from Greenwich/Hubert and Beach/Collister.

  1. It is aesthetically interesting…
    However as it required Landmark approval I am assuming this is in a landmarks area.
    Hence I don’t understand how landmarks feel that THIS is contextual with the buildings around it…
    Seems quite obviously different from the surrounding structures

  2. Beautifully inserted into the block…..great design

  3. Another example of the completely arbitrary nature of Landmarks decisions. If the commissioners are in awe or friends of the presenting architect or developer, they will approve anything, irrespective of its merits. If the commissioners are not related to the presenting architect they will deny even the most modest updates to an existing building.
