The Centurian Building Now Leasing
The Centurian Building, located at 1182 Broadway in the NoMad District, has been converted into a luxury apartment building. While there was some news of the building being redeveloped, the exact details were largely unknown until Mocal Enterprises held the debut open house last week.
James T. Lee, a famous developer and a grandfather of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, built the Centurian. The 17-story loft building has an unusual set of four grand columns at the ground level, soaring three floors and creating a grand retail level at the street level. The building was designed by architects, Rouse & Goldstone, who gave it both its classical design and the name Centurian Building, carved into the frieze Roman-style.
The building boasts 39 one and two-bedroom apartments, all of which are being leased effective the beginning or mid-April. Pricing starts at $5,800 a month and goes as high as $15,000 a month for larger spaces.
The renovation is quite a radical transformation of the 104-year-old landmark. While the apartments have the original copper window frames, the floors have been completely replaced and the building’s facade has been restored. Each apartment comes complete with modern fixtures, appliances and a washer-dryer. The building will also provide a 24-hour concierge, communal bike storage and a landscaped roof deck.
The Centurian Building is located between 28th and 29th street, next door to the Ace Hotel and a half block from the NoMad Hotel.
