27 Wooster is situated on a previously empty corner lot, which presented its designers with a rare opportunity to create something from scratch that would fully respect its landmarked surroundings. The building’s elegant proportions and subtle use of materials blend it seamlessly within the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, which was first designated in 1973. The building’s facade and its generous amount of windows give residents a remarkable view of the neighboring architecture.
“THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS AN
AMAZING SCALE THAT DISTINGUISHES
IT FROM THE REST OF THE CITY.”
—ARCHITECT DOUGLAS HOCKING
Residents of 27 Wooster will enjoy one of the last remaining subdued corners of SoHo. Just steps away from cafes, restaurants, public transportation, and many cultural attractions, the area retains its livable, neighborhood atmosphere. One of its most distinguished neighbors is The Drawing Center, a leading fine arts institution—and the only of its kind in the United States—that holds regular exhibitions, events, and public programs, both historical and contemporary, dedicated solely to drawing.
