Modern Unit at the Ayer for Mad Men Fans
Here’s a fun fact: prior to undergoing a $75 million dollar renovation that transformed it into a 56-unit luxury condo building–Carl Dranoff is in the midst of doing just that for some of the floors at the Residences at Two Liberty Place–, the building at 210 W Washington Square used to be the headquarters of N. W. Ayer & Son, an advertising agency extolling itself as the oldest in the United States.
According to Ad Age, the group was “a leader and innovator” in the field for most of its history, even being the first in the industry to establish an art department. We’d like to think of them as the Don Drapers of the early 19th-century, don’t you?
Today, this unit at the former ad agency building is going for $1,375,000. Over 1,600 square feet comprised of two bedrooms, 11’7” ceilings, and a kitchen equipped with Miele and Sub-Zero appliances and a German bulthaup b3 kitchen system are included in the price tag, as is parking, 24-hour concierge services, an on-site gym, and a common terrace with an herb garden. Bonus? You get windows overlooking the square.
