The uniquely detailed façade of 100 Franklin Street in the Tribeca East Historic District is beginning to be revealed. The residential project consists of conjoined triangular-shaped buildings on a narrow property, yielding ten full-floor residences. Half of the scaffolding and white sheathing that was covering the main eastern elevation has now been disassembled, exposing its detailed masonry craftsmanship. DDG is the architect of the project. The intricately detailed curtain wall uses hand-laid Petersen Tegl bricks. Douglas Elliman is in charge of handling sales.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 321 Church Street in Tribeca, Manhattan. Located between Lispenard Street and Canal Street, the lot is one block from the Canal Street subway station on Broadway, serviced by the N, W, Q, and R trains. Peter Matera of Urban Standard Capital is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Currently the tallest skyscraper in Tribeca is 56 Leonard Street, designed by Herzog & de Meuron. Its cantilevered balconies have created a distinctive and new architectural icon for Lower Manhattan. With the building complete, residents get to enjoy uninterrupted views of the Financial District to the south and the Midtown skyline to the north. But while most eyes are looking up at the Jenga-esque structure, something just as exciting was recently spotted down at street level.
Rising from a narrow, rectangular-shaped corner lot in Tribeca, the curtain wall for 108 Chambers Street is now revealing itself as work on the project continues to make quick progress. The building is being designed by Woods Bagot Architects, and developed by Greystone Development.
GE-T Architects have revealed proposals to renovate an existing, seven-story building at 29-31 Leonard Street, located within the Tribeca West Historic District. Silvera Properties reportedly purchased the property in 2018 for $24.5 million, and the submission will head to the City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission this week for review.
