The Forward Building, a 1912 Beaux Arts Architectural Masterpiece Situated at 175 East Broadway between Jefferson & Rutgers Streets directly across from historic Seward Park on Manhattans Lower East Side is undergoing a renovation and being converted into 29 unique residences. The building once housed the first Jewish language newspaper in the United States. The new interior will be comprised of Studios, one-and two-bedroom lofts, and one of downtowns most exquisite Penthouses. Sales of The Forward Building will be handled exclusively by Michael Bolla of Forward Marketing, LLC. The sales office will open in March 2006, and final construction will be completed by early summer. The buildings lengthy restoration effort is now culminating after ten years of renovations due to an incredible coming together of talents. This has been the most extensive interior and exterior restoration work in the Forward Buildings 96-year history. The double-fronted faade was faithfully refurbished according to historic photos by the Archiect, John D. Nakrosis. Mr. Nakrosis firm provided architectural and engineering services for the replacement of the terra cotta cladding and repairs to the structural steel. The magnificent neo-classical stucco terracotta features will be spot-lit, back-lit and up-lit with a sophisticated exterior lighting configuration designed by the award winning firm, Fisher Marantz & Stone.

The interior architectural effort has been heralded by the Architect Ronald Castellano, of Studio Castellano, whose most recent contribution to the neighborhood includes the restoration of 142 Henry Street, a condominium he recently converted. Mr. Castellanos design intent for The Forward Building was to implement the fundamentals of contemporary design in an historical Landmark tastefully. Interior renovations will preserve the splendidly ornate plaster dome over the mezzanine level, and every unit will enjoy the buildings abundance of oversize windows. The result is a meditative transitional environment with minimalist and serene residences. Castellanos approach to the interior architecture eschews todays developers cookie-cutter methods. Each apartment is uniquely designed to maximize the ceiling heights which vary between eleven and eighteen feet. Fireplaces are available on the 7th
