the building of the showroom, the ‘xoco 325’, is a collection of 21 residences on west broadway, which has been re-developed from a former 19 century chocolate factory. matching soho’s evolution from an industrial district to an upmarket manhattan destination, the ‘xoco 325’ features a dramatic cast-aluminum façade. adding to this, its vertical gardens hang over a glass curtain wall that elegantly references the district’s visual character in a more modern method.
