A new 9-story, 92,000 square foot residential condominium building, designed as a contemporary homage to the elegant and utilitarian loft structures of the Tribeca Historic District. It occupies a long-vacant site facing the Holland Tunnel clearing, and takes advantage of that openness and light with its industrial-scale, double-hung, sound-insulating windows. The design was praised by the Landmarks Preservation Commission as sensitive to the neighboring buildings, and is now much admired as a handsome and well-detailed addition to the already rich historic context. The residential interiors are conceived with a modern sense of simplicity and spaciousness that reflect the character of a loft setting, while offering the full range of amenities that would be expected of a luxury apartment.
