    Default 100 Franklin Street

    Meet the Newest Building Coming to Tribeca's Franklin Street

    by Sara Polsky



    Developer DDG is increasingly prolific, with 41 Bond, 345 Meatpacking, and Soho's former chocolate factory under its belt. Now the firm is moving on to two triangular Tribeca parking lots, between White and Franklin streets on Sixth Avenue. Tribeca Citizen has already dubbed the building—just presented to Community Board 1's Landmarks Committee—the Two Triangles Building because of the shape of the lots. The proposed building, shown above, has a four-layered facade, with fritted glass, reclaimed brick, metal, and interior glazing. On the Franklin Street side, the building will come to the cornice height of neighbor 102 Franklin; on the White Street side, it will be stepped back. The penthouse will be dark so as not to be noticeable.

    UPDATE: DDG reps sent along the above clearer rendering of the project. The building is tentatively slated to have 11 residential units and retail space.



    One of the subcommittee's main concerns when architect Peter Guthrie presented the plan was whether the building would "turn into a big black box at night" because of the fritted glass and the dark penthouse. Neighbors also wondered about the safety of neighboring buildings still doing repairs from Hurricane Sandy and about the amount of light that would be left in the air shaft between buildings once DDG's project is completed.



    DDG has a few other plans for the building's exterior: potted street trees (which require MTA approval, according to Tribeca Citizen) and cables with ivy on them along the facade.

    Nice project.

    I wouldn't have expected this awkward lot to be developed anytime soon. Really shows the dearth of development sites in prime areas.

    The commentary in the TriBeCa Citizen about saving the parking spaces and that the building is inappropriate is just asinine.

    What jackasses. There' no need for anyone to drive around there and thus, to park. I hope the little crappy lot just north of here is redeveloped too.

    I like the new project at 100 Franklin. I walked by it today and the parking lots have garbage and graffiti. The new project looks really nice and will be another plus for the growing neighborhood. The commentary on tribeca citizen is foolish glad someone else noted it. Looks like the comments are simply from people who don't want to lose their land-lot windows. I understand their frustration loosing a window, but its silly to condemn a new luxury building for petty personal reasons.

    100 Franklin St

    An LPC hearing for the development for the 2 triangular lots along 6th Ave was held last week. There were objections that the site should be left as is (parking space people); that's not going to happen. Also calls to turn it into a mini-park. That would entail the city buying the property; not going to happen. Anyway, there's a much better park one block north.

    The LPC will jump at the chance to have a 70 year old scar repaired.

    The main criticism from LPC was the design. Too much glass, especially the mansard roof and the street. Should be "calmed down." There were concerns about protecting the very vulnerable 17 White St, the building where I think they should get design cues.

    The developer was asked to refine the design and return at a later date.

    Details, Starchitect Revealed For New Reade Street Condo

    by Jessica Dailey



    With a facade collapse and failed hotel plan in its past, the troubled property at 71 Reade Street was saved in our favorite way: with plans for a new condo building, the Reade Chambers. The teaser site for the geographically-named building launched today, and reps sent along some details about the 17-unit project. It's being developed by CBSK Ironstate, a partnership between SK Development and Ironstate Development—the same team behind the Jefferson in the East Village (aka the Mystery Lot building) and the Annabelle Selldorf-designed 10 Bond Street in Noho. They plan to bring that same starchitect power to Reade Street, as Selldorf is designing the interiors, with Goldstein, Hill & West as the executive architect.

    Pricing will start at $1.4 million and units, including three penthouses, will range from one- to four-bedrooms. Per DOB permits (it's filed under 87 Chambers Street, as it's a through-block site), the building will have on-site underground parking, plus laundry, storage, and rooms for recreation, pets, and kids. As the rendering shows, the Reade Street side, where residents will enter, rises six-stories, but the building tops out at eight stories (plus a rooftop deck) so it must get higher on Chambers Street. Sales should launch in the first quarter of 2014.

    401 Broadway (NW corner of Broadway and Walker) is getting a new copper top ...

    http://401broadway.com

    401 Broadway, a 335-foot-high tower, was designed by renowned architecture firm, Jardine, Hill & Murdock, and constructed in 1929-1930 — just as the Empire State Building was making its home in Herald Square. Similar in look and feel, both 401 Broadway and the Empire State Building boast Art Deco details; both were centers of commerce back in the 20’s and 30’s — and continue to be today ...

    WTH?!


    Franklin Street Condo Ditches Glass For Brick, Wins Over LPC



    Today, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved plans for a new building at 100 Franklin Street, a development they sent back to the drawing board in November. Peter Guthrie of the development and design team at DDG presented a completely different design, stripped of all the elements that had once made Tribecans seethe. "I think this is extraordinary and exhilarating," one member of the commission said about the changes. "This is now resolved in the right way." The original iteration featured a slew of materials—fritted glass, metal, recovered brick—but a more simplified version won over the commission. The new building, which the commission said fits more with the neighborhood, features brown bricks, as well a Romanesque arch on the ground floor and Jack arches throughout the façade.



    DDG first revealed their plans to the public last year during a community board 1 meeting. Located in Tribeca, the area currently holds two triangular parking lots created in 1930s, between White and Franklin Streets on Sixth Avenue. Soon after the plans were shown, more than 800 people signed a petition calling the building "historically inappropriate," according to DNAinfo. The Landmarks Preservation Commission echoed the same sentiment in their deliberations at the time. The design proposals were for a condo that featured four-layered facade, with fritted glass, reclaimed brick, metal, and interior glazing. All of which the commission called "attention-calling" at the top and that it "just seems muddled and trying to do a lot of things."

    The developers and architects took all of this feedback and came back today with a completely revised design, which a commissioner called "simple and elegant," and, most importantly, "contextual." During his presentation, Guthrie actually apologized to the commission for the original design and likened him and the developers to excited revelers, drunk from anticipation. "I'm glad you guys went back and sobered up," a member of the commission said right before they voted to approve the building.

    It had been previously thought that the developers would have finished purchasing the lot by end of 2013. But the developers asked Peter Matera, the current owner of the 100 Franklin St. lot, for more time before setting a closing date.
