Topping Out: Ryan Korban’s Luxury Residential Building 40 Bleecker in NYC
40 Bleecker — NoHo’s newest and most anticipated residential development — has just topped out and reached its full height, making it one of the tallest new buildings in the neighborhood. To celebrate, developer Broad Street Development, NYC-based firm Rawlings Architects and world renown AD100 celeb-interior designer Ryan Korban were joined by the sales team from Douglas Elliman Marketing Group, including Million Dollar Listing’s Fredrik Eklund, John Gomes, Sarah Burke and President and CEO Susan De Franca, on-site at the building.
Located on the prominent corner of Bleecker and Mulberry Streets, the ground-up condominium building contains 61 one-to-five-bedroom residences with six penthouses that crown the top of the tower, with a design that is both unmistakably modern yet contextual to its landmark surroundings.
40 Bleecker is the first residential building designed by Korban, the buzzy designer who recently published his first book of interiors and is known for his flagship luxury apparel stores (Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Aquazzura, Fivestory) and private homes for a bevy of fashion designers, models, actors and other prominent cultural figures (Kanye West, James Franco, Jessica Stam + more).
Another hallmark of 40 Bleecker: The full suite of services and amenities, rare for NoHo, including private parking, a 58-foot indoor pool, gym and beautifully landscaped sculpture garden that has been designed by AD100’s Edmund Hollander Landscape Architects.
Providing views that are extremely rare for the neighborhood, 40 Bleecker has availability beginning from under $2 million. Closings at 40 Bleecker are expected to begin this Fall.

With architecture by Rawlings Architects, 40 Bleecker seamlessly blends modern design with the quality and distinction of buildings constructed a century ago. The striking brick and metal façade features punched glass window openings that are an important nod to the past and a reference to the historic, landmarked buildings within the surrounding NoHo neighborhood. Undulating in a step-like fashion at the top three penthouse levels and gently curving at its corners to maximize light and views, 40 Bleecker offers a boldly contemporary exterior design well situated among the historically industrial pre-war buildings of its surroundings. The light-filled homes feature a collection of six penthouses, each with private outdoor space, that crown the top floors of the building. Elegantly proportioned residences are graced with high ceilings, enormous banks of windows, and a richly layered palette of materials hand-selected by Korban, coming together in a highly stylized living experience and celebrating the building’s captivating architecture.
40 Bleecker’s interiors are the eye-popping hallmark of the project, all conceived by Ryan Korban – the AD100 designer known for his flagship luxury apparel stores (Balenciaga, Alexander Wang, Aquazzura, Fivestory) and private homes for a bevy of fashion designers, models, actors and other prominent cultural figures. The residences and shared spaces at 40 Bleecker, Korban’s first-ever residential development, showcases a level of fine bespoke detail and custom finishes unprecedented for a new development project of this size.
To welcome residents and guests, the warm lobby is appointed with honed statuary marble and dove grey terrazzo flooring, offset by suede-paneled and Beauval limestone walls. In the intimate seating area, two Korban-designed sofas clad in statuary marble surround a custom-designed French limestone slab coffee table that takes center stage atop a soft grey silk rug, all centered around a black marble fireplace lined in bronze. Each kitchen, outfitted with appliances by Miele, has been flawlessly designed to combine fine craftsmanship with sleek, modern technology. Sculptural, cantilevered and waterfall-style islands in honed statuary marble along with bookmatched marble hoods are the focal point of the spaces, complemented by elegant Italian cerused oak cabinetry with fluted bronze-colored glass and SA Baxter burnished nickel hardware. Present throughout the residences and sourced from recycled wine barrels crafted by the finest tradesmen and artisans in northern Italy, is Listone Giordano French Oak chevron flooring. In the master baths, Korban has custom-designed the marble vanities that are surrounded by a reflective layer of mirror and glass to amplify both space and light. Echoing the adjacent living rooms, the master baths floors consist of Grigio dove and Calcutta moon light marble layered in a chevron pattern. Within the powder rooms, handselected statuary marble envelops the area and a unique custom lighting design by Bill Schwinghammer illuminates the interiors.
Bringing a relaxing calm to the dynamic city energy, 40 Bleecker’s landscape architecture by esteemed AD100 designer Edmund Hollander, of Edmund Hollander Lanscape Design, blends the boundaries between the interior and exterior. The quiet retreat at the heart of the building is a 5,600 square foot sculpture garden that has been mindfully designed and thoughtfully appointed with lush, sustainably sourced greenery and seasonal flora. Punctuated by reflecting pools, Zen waterfalls and chevron paths, private seating groupings located throughout the garden adapt for both privacy and gathering.
