Apartments are about to fill a parking lot in TriBeCa. New building applications have been filed to erect a 12-story, mixed-use building at 86 Warren Street, between Greenwich Street and West Broadway.
Vanbarton Group is in contract to acquire the six-story, 115,000-square-foot mixed-use building, formerly home to the Tribeca Film Festival, at 13-17 Laight Street, in TriBeCa, for $90 million. The group plans to convert the building into a retail, office, and “lifestyle facility” space, the New York Post reported. Vanbarton is in the process of buying out all of the property’s existing commercial and residential tenants. The 13,867-square-foot lot also comes with 10,530 square feet of air rights, although it’s not known if an expansion is planned.
Since last fall, when façade work was wrapping up, construction on the 11-story, 106-unit residential building at 456 Washington Street, located on the corner of Watts Street in TriBeCa, has finished. The new building encompasses 186,054 square feet and is home to 106 luxury rental apartments, 22 of which will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. The apartments, averaging 1,330 square feet apiece, range from studios to five-bedrooms.
On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission took another step towards clearing its formerly 95-item backlog of sites calendared pre-2010. The commission designated seven properties in two boroughs – Staten Island and Manhattan. There was also a non-backlog designation.
A five-story, single-family mega-mansion project at 11 Hubert Street, in TriBeCa, technically an expansion and redevelopment of an existing three-story mixed-use structure, has received approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission, Curbed NY reported. The project’s design, which has seen minor changes since a previous proposal from January, is the work of Maya Lin Studio and Bialosky + Partners Architects. The latest filings with the Buildings Department detail a 55,080-square-foot mansion fit with five bedrooms, a private pool in the cellar, a landscaped courtyard, and a 5,000-square-foot fitness center. The family behind the project has not yet been disclosed, nor has a construction timeline. The site sits within the TriBeCa West Historic District, which is why approval from the LPC was required.
