55 Mercer Street is a 17,000 sq foot building situated in one of the most historic neighborhoods in Manhattan— the SoHo cast-iron Landmark District. This jewel of property is located on the westerly side of Mercer Street. 55 Mercer Street was originally built from old timber framing, brick exterior bearing walls and cast iron facade. The landmarked building was constructed circa 1900’s and contains five existing stories above the ground and a new penthouse addition with grand terraces on the roof.

Historical Windows provided beautiful, historically installation of wood double hung with weight & chain operation, along with a custom storefront consisting of doors and fixed sidelines to perfectly match the existing opening. Parrett custom windows with a New York City Landmark approved color along with a radius handrail style brickmould. Along the head of the windows where the casing meets the jamb, all of the hung windows had a very tight 5-1/2’ outside radius on the brickmould. The total building contains approximately 14,100 sq. ft. of livable space, approximately 3,000 sq. ft. of retail space on the first floor, and 3,500 sq. ft. of below-grade space, which was discovered to have been preciously occupied bay a theater company.
