At One York Street, two brick warehouses from the Civil War era were transformed into a modern 136,000-square-foot condominium complex. The building spans a full city block, between Laight and York Streets, St. John’s Lane, and Avenue of the Americas. Enrique Norton designed the building. The new structure is 14-story glass tower and contains 40 loft units, 25 of them located within the original buildings. The development’s first two levels house the lobby retail space, and office space. The remaining 12 levels are condominiums with units on the uppermost floors featuring wrap-around terraces and balconies that offer residents 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline. Concluded in late 2008, Enrique Norten did a fine job marrying two turn-of-the-century loft-like structures with a modern glass and steel high-rise structure.
This massive, 10 story building was a prime candidate for a residential conversion, perfectly located in historic Northwest Tribeca. Most of the neighboring buildings that were converted at the peak of the market in 2005 were getting well over $1300 per square foot. when Ethan C. Eldon and Joel J. Silver began the conversion.

Built in 1894 as the New York Wool Warehouse Company, 260 West Broadway is today known as the American Thread Building. This Tribeca landmark has a truly colorful history. In 1981 The Tipitina Group, an affiliate of Jonathan Rose Companies, renovated the building, and sold the units as live/work lofts. (It was converted in 1983.) Due to the extraordinary design, which attracted an artistic group of early residents, the lofts sold for 30% above market. The American Thread Building was the world’s first residential community that provided computer terminals and access to online services with each loft.
Local Tribeca residents know this building as “the Dutch building” because of its distinctive crown trim that is typical in Holland and simultaneously evokes New Amsterdam.

To truly appreciate 62 Beach one must know its history. Once the part of TriBeCa that was called “Lispenard Meadows,” the Fischer Mills Building located at 62 Beach Street is a classic TriBeCa loft building. Lispenard Meadows was a country wetlands area with rolling hills where hunters and sportsmen came to get away from the busy downtown city. As the city expanded in the 18th century, fashionable residences were built here and TriBeCa was home to some of the most wealthy and influential people of New York. Washington Market developed in 1771 and the Tribeca waterfront between Washington and Vestry became the nation’s largest food market. The once quiet wetlands were developed and by 1877 there were over 500 wholesalers of meat, butter, cheese, vegetables, fruit poultry and previsions.
The North Moore is a prime example of the renaissance that Tribeca has experienced over the last 20 years. 53 North Moore is a combination of four adjacent landmark industrial buildings previously occupied by paper mills and houses 49 luxury loft condominium units and retail space currently occupied by the renowned restaurant Mr. Chows.

Located on one of my favorite cobblestone streets in the city, 60 Beach is the epitome of a boutique landmark Tribeca building. All of the units sold out during the renovation - a testament to the quality of the product.
TriBeca was waiting for a building like this, and it showed. When the sales office open its door, in 2006, 40% of the units where sold in 60 days. Located in the lower part of TriBeca, not too far from Ground Zero, the site has long time been a parking lot.

If you don’t mind trekking to the far northwest corner of Tribeca, you will find one of the most talked about new buildings, Truffles. I have yet to see a building that has a better decor than this - starting with the lounge - Truffles Prive. Here tenants can check out books from the library, play pool, foosball, even Wii. There is even an 18th century bar where you can keep bottles of wine, whiskey, or whatever you choose behind it for you convenience. Also in Prive is a 24-hour full gym and a movie theater that seats about 15.

Newly restored with period lighting and lush vertical plantings, this historic passageway will offer an atmosphere evocative of Old New York and TriBeCa’s great past. The building will be wrapped in an optically dazzling, constantly shifting pattern of horizontal black metal bands sewn onto its form the way that decorative seams and pleats are sewn onto a luxurious couture garment.

Amenities in this new development building will include a sub-level private spa and fitness center.
