250 Bowery sits amidst a hodgepodge of 19th and early 20th century commercial neighbors on the west side of the Bowery. The facade is nearly square, with the width of the lot closely matching the 85` maximum allowable height. The building faces SANAA`s New Museum of Contemporary Art and Sir Norman Foster`s Sperone-Westwater Gallery. The front and rear facades are clad in Alucobond aluminum-composite panels with floor-to-ceiling, factory-sash windows. The facade responds to both the commercial history of the Bowery and the decidedly contemporary direction taken with recent construction in the neighborhood. The interiors for the residences are open and lofty with spare and minimal detailing. 250 Bowery heralds change for a neighborhood that has been primarily commercial for generations and brings upscale living to a famously down-at-the-heels address.
