New Construction in Tribeca


Though the neighborhood of Tribeca is most widely-known for its stunning and spacious converted historical lofts, developers have been working to create new residential projects which will boast the same high ceilings and spacious floorplans that bring potential buyers to this neighborhood, with an ever-expanding array of luxury amenities to boot.

A unique example of newer construction is the Sterling Mason House, located at 71 Laight Street – a project that combines the restoration of a brick and terra cotta structure that once housed a tea and coffee warehouse with a brand new adjoining structure that was constructed in its mirror image.

The two adjoining structures that form Sterling Mason House are adjoined by a highly-visible courtyard, designed by the team of Deborah Nevins & Associates. Designers sought to incorporate the structures' slender columns, which were integral to the original building's construction into the layout of the building's apartments, which range in size from 3,708 to 6,609 square feet. Amenities at Sterling Mason include a private courtyard with waterfall, a private garage with 12 parking spaces, four elevators, and a building-wide water filtration system.

Another exciting new project is the residential tower at 111 Murray, developed by the Fischer Brothers and Witkoff. The building will have a unique shape that expands as it rises, making it a new and distinctive part of the city’s skyline.

111 Murray is currently having open houses, and is slated to be complete in 2018. When finished, the building will stand at some 800 feet, and will be the third tallest structure in Tribeca, matching the height of the famed Woolworth Building. To match this great height, the developers have also included a 10,600 square foot open plaza that will sit adjacent to the tower and add to the appeal of the neighborhood.

The interiors of these 156 units were designed by David Mann, and are said to be a study in proportion, light, and scale. Kitchens feature white oak cabinetry and the latest in top-end appliances by Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Miele. The entire building features an elegant selection of natural stone, from its marble waterfall countertops in the kitchen, to its travertine wall feature in the majority of the master baths, as well as freestanding BluStone bathtubs placed against floor-to-ceiling windows for an unbeatable city-viewing experience.

New residential buildings like the ones mentioned above are redefining the spectrum of luxury amenities with everything from a Turkish hammam with heated marble beds to optional private jet service. It will be exciting to see what innovation comes next to Tribeca's new constructions and conversions, as the neighborhood continues to increase in value.
