2 Cooper Square Capped

Posted on: November 12th, 2009 at 6:25 am by

In just a few short months, 2 Cooper Square (aka Deuce Coop) has reached its peak height, capped and crowned with the requisite American flag.  A look at the rear of the construction project from an unfettered vantage point on Fourth Street truly shows its massive size.

Here’s a quick recap of the fifteen-story structure. Broker babble via Curbed:

The exterior of the building will reflect historic elements sympathetic with the adjacent Noho Historic District. It will boast a 6-story base that recalls the historic streetwall condition of the particular site. Floors 7 through 15 will be set back from both the East 4th Street and Cooper Square façades. The design includes double-hung windows in punched openings that are reminiscent of adjacent historic properties. Expressed columns and larger window openings at the corners of the building help to modulate the scale of the ‘street wall.’

Meanwhile, the historic Samuel Tredwell Skidmore House at 37 East Fourth Street will be restored as part of the deal.  For now, it remains in a dilapidated state.
