Penthouses en route at Kushner Companies’ Puck Building

Six penthouses at Kushner Companies’ Puck Building in Soho are set to hit the market, Buzz Buzz Home reported. The apartments are being marketed by Douglas Elliman’s Raphael De Niro and Dennis Mangone, and sales will launch later this spring. The addition of the penthouses to the historic building was approved in 2011, after a contentious landmarks battle.

The lofts at 295 Lafayette Street will range from 4,895 square feet to over 7,000 square feet, and will have barrel vault brick ceilings, cast-iron columns, oversize windows and open layouts, according to the listing seen by Buzz Buzz Home. Residents of the apartments will enter the building through a private entrance and have access to a 24-hour concierge. Three of the penthouses will have deep, set-back outdoor space. 

In December 2011, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a highly scaled-back version of Kushner Companies’ proposed penthouse additions to the landmarked building, after the developer had a three-month battle with the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, which fought against the original proposal. The revised additions were 20 feet shorter than in the original proposal. [Buzz Buzz Home]  –Hiten Samtani
