    Tall, Thin, and Futuristic



    The narrow vacant lot at 19 Park (it goes through to Murray) is about to sprout a 21-story condo building. The last anyone had heard about it was in October of 2010, when Curbed posted a rendering. Recently, however, one of those city construction-update signs went up on Murray. I called ABN Realty, the developer listed on the sign, and I was told that construction will start in the next couple of weeks—and that Ismael Leyva‘s rather futuristic design is still happening. According to the sign, construction will be done by the end of November 2013.

    Here are some rendering’s from Leyva’s site….

    Can't post photos right now, but equipment is on site and pinning foundations as we speak.

    Good to hear the foundation work is underway - tall, thin and 'rich' looking modernist architecture at its best. Whats not to like? And thanks to Merry for posting those graphics/pictures: those are very 'robust' images, enjoyed viewing them so much I tweeted the link to today.

    Thanks for news.

    It looks like the kind of place that you would expect the kind of person that looks like Ismael Leyva would design.

    It's 1990 too-tan black tee-shirt Miami-Vice architecture.

    That's one way to keep the neighbors from collapsing as the foundation gets dug out.

    Futuristic Park Place Shocker To Be Called Tribeca Royale

    Monday, June 3, 2013, by Jessica Dailey

    Work began last year at 19 Park Place, the space age-looking tower designed by Ismael Levya, and now the building has a name! Please say hello to the Tribeca Royale, a name that will no doubt inspire some neighborhood boundary debate. A press release also gives some new details about the interiors. There will be 24 condos, not 29, and 11 of those will be full-floor residences on the upper floors. A few units will be duplexes, and those situated at the building setbacks will have private terraces. The building is just 25-feet wide, and evidently, "this striking design maximizes available space throughout the lean structure."
    The 21-story, 292-foot tall building is being developed by ABN Realty, and it will have a double-height lobby, a gym, residential lounges, and a shared terrace. All units have (highly visible) rounded balconies with glass railings, and two units have private rooftop terraces. No word yet on pricing or if the building is still on track for November completion (but we doubt it is). Reps say the building is on track for a 2014 completion. We haven't seen the construction site in a few months, so any photos showing the progress are welcome on thetipline.

    I'll grant them the rounded balconies up top, silly looking as they are. But those on the base section are terrible and must go.

    On second thought, no. None of it should be built. It's such a bad bad bad design, any way you look at it.
