Ten years after Louis Vuitton bravely opened a store on Greene Street, the onetime quaint SoHo back-water is emerging as the neighborhood's rising star. As a magnet for high-end shops and shoppers alike, it now rivals glitzy Spring and Prince streets—not to mention SoHo's original top draw, West Broadway, two blocks to the west of Greene Street.
Yet another of the historic buildings in Soho's Cast Iron District is going condo, joining recent developments at 40 Wooster Street and 25 Mercer Street, among others. The AOIN Partners-backed condos at 63 Greene Street launched sales today, with six of its 15 apartments now on the market. The 19th-century building was converted into a condo in the past few years, but some of its historic details remain, including oversized windows and cast-iron columns in some of the apartments.
