United States Of America
Listed on January 19, 2017
The Austin, Nichols & Co. Warehouse remains one of the most impressive structures on the east river; not only is it a superb and highly visible example of early twentieth century engineering, but it is also one of the earliest reinforced concrete warehouses in the united states designed by a nationally prominent architect.
The Austin Nichols House lobby is striking, featuring a 20’ ceiling and hand-painted cement columns that complement the essence of Cass Gilbert’s 1915 design. With adornments of hexagonal Italian tile, 3D dune walnut tiling, and a lush green living wall, this inviting entryway is the juxtaposition of warmth and artistry.
The Austin Nichols House is prominently positioned on the North Brooklyn Waterfront. Set before Manhattan skyline views, it overlooks the largest stretch of the East River and offers direct access to the East River Ferry, the North 5th Street Pier, and East River State Park.
