The Constable



Building Description

At the corner of Mercer and Howard Streets in SoHo stands The Constable, a luxurious loft conversion surrounded by the world's largest collection of cast iron architecture. Originally built in 1857 as a textile department store in a manufacturing district, galleries and boutiques now line cobblestone streets while skyscrapers peek out behind buildings to the north and south. In the southern portion of the SoHo, 53 Howard Street is near the renowned Manhattan neighborhood of Tribeca, offering copious amounts of dining and shopping options. The ultimate luxury loft experience, The Constable's high ceilings and oversized windows create inviting and airy spaces accented by exquisite Italianate details that set it apart from so many other loft buildings. Top-of-the-line appliances contrast with antique crown molding for an eclectic and contemporary design. The Constable's hardwood floors and small touches such as exposed brick walls and radiator heating bring back the feel of living in SoHo during its days as an artist haven, but never has it felt as sumptuous as it does now. The double-glazed windows with stunning views of Manhattan certainly add to the appeal of The Constable. In the spirit of urban pioneering, The Constable's amenities come from outside rather than within. Merely crossing Howard Street, the ordered chaos of Canal Street to the south, with its open air markets, import shops, and authentic restaurants, turns to refined urban living in SoHo and Tribeca. Cuisine from across the world can be found mere footsteps from your front door next to renowned designer stores. The feeling of old New York, with its dynamic and ever-changing population, is still alive and well right at 53 Howard Street. The Constable is at the heart of the bustling metropolis known as Manhattan, and it's yours for the taking.
