One Vandam is a 14-story mixed-use project with incredible views, ample exterior greenspace, a dynamic exterior envelope, and a contextually-sensitive street presence that establishes a distinctive edge  at the intersection of SoHo and Sixth Avenue.

Situated at a rare combination mid-block/corner site, at the intersection of three major neighborhoods in lower Manhattan, the building includes 25 luxury residential units perched atop a commercial base and low-rise residential “gatehouse” entry building. Through strategic massing, the lower portions of the building scale with the adjacent streetscape, ensuring that the architecture complements the primarily pre-war neighborhood. The slender residential tower overlaps the “gatehouse” building perpendicularly and sits atop the commercial plinth, surrounded by a landscaped green roof and generous exterior tenant amenity space, featuring exceptional exposure and through-floor unit layouts on each residential floor. The carefully choreographed “random” stone and glass curtainwall composition is a direct articulation of the building’s 7 unique floorplates, comprised of varied unit sizes and configurations. The result is a dynamic façade that exhibits degrees of transparency and reflection based on lighting conditions and viewing angles.
