New & Unique Loft-y Rentals To Debut Summer ’10
– Amenities Galore!

By Lauren Raymond
New York, New York – In SoHo, a neighborhood filled with sought-after residences, great dining, galleries and New York City’s foremost design stores and enviable transportation, a new and unique rental residence, 55 Thompson, is about to open at the corner of Thompson and Broome Streets. Once home to the City’s first indoor garage (circa 1920), the site now boasts a beautiful curved structure, with 38 units and a three-story, full service townhouse with a private Sullivan Street entry. A terracotta medallion of a car that had once graced the front of the garage now crowns the nine-story building - as an homage to the past.

55 Thompson, developed, owned and managed by Manhattan Skyline, features beautifully crafted one-, two- and three-bedroom residences in desirable SoHo. “We created a unique building with extraordinarily large rental homes” said Laurie Zucker, a principal of Manhattan Skyline. “They are beautifully finished and the attention to detail radiates a charm that is almost impossible to find among New York City rentals. A 24 hour concierge and resident manager in a building of this size make this true full-service rental building in the heart of SoHo, an exceptional rarity.”

Designed by the Stephen B. Jacobs Group, the lofty homes flaunt wide solid white-oak flooring, 10-foot ceilings, large rooms, abundant closets and room-sized windows. In addition to the amazing cityscape views, select units are equipped with gas fireplaces, private balconies and wrap-around terraces. Sky-lit penthouses dazzle in the sun.

“Residents will be drawn to the intimate scale of the building” said Richard Cantor, a principal of Cantor Pecorella, the firm handling exclusive sales and marketing for the project. “Today, rental buildings are often synonymous with 200 plus cookie-cutter units, which often are out of context in their neighborhoods. With only 38 homes, 55 Thompson retains the low-rise European character of SoHo, offering renters the boutique feeling usually only found in condo buildings.”

Stylish kitchens feature custom limed-oak cabinetry with inset glass doors and Rainforest stone countertops with polished glass-tile backsplashes. “Top of the line” appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Bertazzoni gas range and Bosch dishwasher. Marble and tile bathrooms boast enormous dual-sink vanities, Toto dual-flush water closets, separate frameless glass shower stalls and relaxing soaking tubs to sit back and gaze out at the Empire State Building and beyond. Additionally, all homes are equipped with a fully-vented washer and dryer.

Expected to be ready for occupancy this fall, the outstanding residences are complimented by exclusive Sky’s The Limit™ concierge service by Abigail Michaels, where “If you can dream it, we can make it happen.” Other building amenities include a fully equipped fitness center, and two beautifully furnished and landscaped terraces providing 3,350 sq. ft. at the 2nd floor and 1,600 sq. ft. at the rooftop with spectacular views. Pricing starts at $6,500 per month.
