Located in the heart of SoHo, 151 Wooster blends the form and function of the artist’s bygone loft with the grandeur and opulence of today’s most elegant living spaces. An exclusive collection of ten 3,000 sq. ft. luxury lofts and one 8,000 sq. ft. penthouse, the lofts at 151 Wooster are meticulous in their aesthetic and masterfully appointed in their detail. Alfa Development directed a full gut renovation of the entire building including entirely new mechanical systems, new flooring and a new rooftop pavillion while working around an occupied retail space. The architectural details of the original facade which were fully restored by Alfa Development are stunning with detailed limestone window carvings, light antiqued brick and a dramatic cornice. This restoration in keeping with the character of the neighborhood was contrasted with extremely high-end Mies Van Der Rooh inspired contemporary finishes in the lofts designed by Lee H. Skolnick Design + Architecture Partnership, internationally respected for their unique high-end residences and museum designs. 151 Wooster has since become the most desirable luxury loft destination in all of SoHo due to its exquisitely executed design, its 24 hour doorman, its extremely high profile demographic, and its permanent Certificate of Occupancy.
During the interior demolition of the 8th floor one of the more fascinating works of art ever uncovered in New York City was discovered behind an old kitchen wall. The two part 18’x11’ & 10’x11’ mural had been hidden for almost 30 years and featured prominent urban downtown artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat, Fab 5 Freddy, Francesco Clemente, Futura 2000, Rammellzee, and Koor. The mural underwent a $200,000 restoration and removal job and was featured in an art gallery Alfa Development constructed and operated on the 2nd floor of the building called Gallery 151. The piece and the gallery has since then been featured in hundreds of news outlets around the world, has had thousands of visitors, and has had documentaries and TV shows produced about them.
