345 West 13th Street

New York, NY

345 West 13th Street is a full-service luxury residential condominium in the West Village. Developed by Hudson for sale in 1999, 345 West 13th Street was converted from its former use by a printer into 47 loft residences. Originally built in 1890 by John Jacob Astor, it is located at the corner of Hudson and West 13th Streets, with dramatic views of the West Village, Lower Manhattan, and the Hudson River, and connects through the block with a narrow portion fronting on 14th Street.

345 West 13th Street was well-suited for luxury loft residential units with interior design that retains the historic flavor of a turn-of-the-century industrial facility. The open floor plan features exposed masonry walls, brick arches, decorative cast iron, wood columns, heavy timber beams, and steel structural I-beams. The exterior features include a restored metal cornice, detailed historic metal panels, attractive brick pilasters, fluted metal mullions, and expansive window openings that bring natural light into the interior of the building. Hudson created a completely new stair and elevator core in the center of the building, added a partial seventh floor to create dramatic duplex apartments with outdoor terraces, and developed a landscaped central outdoor garden.
