Japanese architect Tadao Ando has designed some of the world’s most celebrated buildings. He’s won every major architecture award. The only thing that’s seemed to elude him: designing a New York City apartment building.

Until now.

A seven-unit condo development at 152 Elizabeth Street in Nolita, designed by Ando, will launch sales early next year.

Developed by Sumaida + Khurana, 152 Elizabeth is located at the corner of Kenmare and Elizabeth Streets. Rising just seven stories, the building will house bespoke apartments measuring 1,900 square feet to more than 5,600 square feet. Half-floor residences will start at $5.9 million full-floor condos will start at $15 million. The penthouse pricing has not been released.

Each apartment is “being treated as a custom residence,” Leonard Steinberg, president of Urban Compass, which is marketing the project, said in a statement.

Saif Sumaida and Amit Khurana purchased the site for $21 million in March and tapped Ando to design the building.

Known for his minimalist designs, Ando has won the Pritzker Architecture Prize (1995), the Praemium Imperiale (1996), the Carlsberg Architecture Prize (1992) and the Kyoto Prize (2002).

152 Elizabeth will feature building materials Ando is known for, including concrete, galvanized steel and glass. The interiors are being designed by Michael Gabellini and Kimberly Sheppard, who created retail spaces for designers Armani, Jil Sander and Ferragamo.

Each resident of 152 Elizabeth will have at least one parking spot. Construction is expected to be finished in 2016.
