Lenny Kravitz Designed Condos at 75 Kenmare Now a Reality

Posted on: March 20th, 2019 at 5:00 am by

Nearly three years after the wrecking ball came for the parking garage at 75 Kenmare Street, its replacement is now a permanent fixture for Little Italy.

See for yourself…

As previously disclosed, DHA Capital, which purchased the corner parking garage for $50 million in June 2015, is the developer behind the 55,000-square-foot mixed-use property. Floor area is comprised of 38 apartments, retail, and, ironically, parking. Rock musician Lenny Kravitz is on board as the interior designer, vis-a-vis Kravitz Design. The firm will impart decor with metal, oak, and “unique natural stone” elements.

Overall design of the building itself is courtesy of Andre Kikoski Architects

The website, meanwhile, peddles plenty of vomit-worthy babble about what a great addition the development is. How it’s the “modern vanguard of enlightened living.”
