22 Bond Street The symbiotic marriage of art and architecture

22 Bond Street | New Development
Six ultra-exclusive residences starting from $8.975M

I can’t think of a new development that has a closer connection with (and is a greater celebration of) art, than 22 Bond in New York at this moment — and what’s especially exciting is that my team and I will be launching sales for the building this May!

Art is engrained in the DNA of Bond Street and in the architecture of 22 Bond

Art is engrained in the DNA of Bond Street and in the architecture of 22 Bond. Outside the gatehouse is a site-specific commission by Roy Nachum. Pieces by Nachum are designed as part of the public spaces throughout the building. Crowning the exterior is Federico Uribe’s “SuperFly,” an artistic experience for the building as well as the neighborhood.

Walls are oriented to protect artworks and allow for the virtually unrestricted display and arrangement of art

22 Bond is a limited edition of six ultra-exclusive residences framing a seductive urban garden. Embodying authentic luxury and rugged sophistication, the architecture of 22 Bond speaks to the neighborhood’s industrial past. Vestiges of an 18th century townhouse and exposed beams from a past development are part of 22 Bond’s architectural experience.

The residences of 22 Bond are unlike anything in New York, with double-height custom kitchens designed by Smallbone, gallery-ready surfaces, and ceiling heights from 10-1/2 to 12 to 22 feet. Walls are oriented to protect artworks and allow for the virtually unrestricted display and arrangement of art, as in the soaring living and entertaining spaces.

Bond Street’s Art Past

The 1890s building at 24 Bond Street, now known for the gold acrobats leaping and twisting across its façade, was the home and studio of the iconic Robert Mapplethorpe during the 1970s. In a fifth-floor loft there, Mapplethorpe photographed subjects from former girlfriend and muse Patti Smith, nude and gripping a radiator beneath cracked and dirty windows, to the bound and leather-clad men he found at local bars. After moving to West 23rd Street in the 1980s, Mapplethorpe kept the Bond Street loft as his darkroom until his death, in 1989.

Jean-Michel Basquiat rose from teenage graffiti artist, poet, and musician to one of the most celebrated painters of his generation. From 1983 until his death in 1988, Basquiat lived and worked at 57 Great Jones Street, owned at the time by his friend and collaborator Andy Warhol. The two-story brick building, a former Civil War-era stable, had been home to the New Brighton Athletic Club, a notorious dance hall, drinking den, boxing ring, and headquarters of the infamous Five Points Gang.

Pioneering artist and 80s icon Keith Haring created some of his most famous works-cartoonlike illustrations of dancing humans, barking dogs, UFOs-in a fifth-floor studio in a cast-iron commercial building on Broadway, between Bleecker and Great Jones streets. The studio where Haring worked from 1985 until his death in 1990 is now home to the Keith Haring Foundation, which has preserved the paint-splattered floors and ghostly imprints on the walls left behind by works Haring created there.

In his skylit studio at 20 Bond Street, legendary artist Chuck Close paints pixelated self-portraits and large-scale likenesses of famous faces, from Philip Glass and Cindy Sherman to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. The building’s ornate terra-cotta cornices and columns make it among the most handsome and exactingly detailed on the block.
