    Almost-Indentical Twins Getting Ready to Rise?

    November 24, 2009, by Pete

















    Another frozen condo project might be on the thaw down in Tribeca. We point your attention to 71 Laight Street, the cool and kind of crazy plan for the block between Greenwich and Washington Streets, where architect Morris Adjmi will replicate an existing century-old brick warehouse by building a mirror image in aluminum on the lot next door. Seriously! Together the buildings will contain 32 condos, including a pair of penthouses. The old brick building on the corner of Washington, once the home to the Ragus Tea and Coffee Company, is sheathed in a sidewalk shed and, while DOB shows that full approval still awaits, the old tenants are but a memory. This stretch of Laight, from the Hudson River to the Holland Tunnel, is seeing lots of action, with condos cropping up all around and a new patch of park going in to the west. Make room for the odd couple!

    46 Laight St

    Two years ago, the site was shut down for construction violations and other difficulties.



    Never thought it would survive the recession, but here it is, almost finished.

    I think 46 Laight is stuck -- it's looked nearly finished like that for months now (plywood fence up at street level, and perfectly restored up above) but seems there's very little activity on the site.

    I was happy to see that V33 is already about 5 floors up.

    Default North Tribeca Development...

    ...and South.


    Years of Street Work Planned for Tribeca, North and South

    By Matt Dunning


    As early as next month, Tribeca will face years of street work, with all the noise, traffic tangles and burdens to businesses that typically go with it.

    Shane Ojar, a deputy director of the city’s Department of Design and Construction, told Community Board 1’s Tribeca Committee on Feb. 17 that a five-and-a-half-year replacement of water mains in northern Tribeca could start by the end of the summer. In addition, he said, crews will begin a three-year overhaul a five-block-long stretch of Chambers Street in early April that will narrow the street to one lane for the duration of the project.

    “People living in the area will be able to maintain their day-to-day routine, that’s what we’re trying to do,” Ojar said. “Obviously, that’s not going to happen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

    Water mains beneath Hudson Street, as well as several of the side streets which intersect it, need to be replaced as the city prepares to begin bringing its massive Third Water Tunnel online in 2012. The $26 million project will occur in three phases, and at the earliest would wrap up in early 2016. Ojar said one lane of a one-block stretch of West Street—between Laight and Hubert Streets—would be lost during the first and shortest phase of work, to last six months. A second phase, also beginning as early as this summer, will close two of four lanes on Hudson Street, between Laight and Hubert. Street parking will be very limited or lost entirely in affected areas for the three-year duration of that phase. Work will go on from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays and periodically on weekends, Ojar said,

    Once that part of the project is completed, now expected to be in 2013, a larger stretch begins, with the five blocks between Hubert and Worth Streets narrowed to two lanes. Beach, North Moore and Franklin Streets, west of Hudson, will be narrowed to one lane. All traffic lanes on Hudson Street will be open during rush hour, Ojar said.

    In the meantime, the Chambers Street work is just weeks away. The $24 million, three-year project to replace 112-year-old water pipes beneath Chambers Street will close all but one westbound lane of traffic between Broadway and West Street. Though the Department of Transportation has yet to finalize a detour plan for the project, Ojar said Warran Street would likely have to shoulder the eastbound traffic displaced from Chambers Street.

    Ojar compared the Chambers Street project to the reconstruction of Fulton Street, now underway for more than three years and the source of grief to motorists, pedestrians and businesses alike.

    “That’s the worst possible example you could have given,” committee member Liat Silberman said.

    Tribeca Getting Ready to (Mostly) Bury Industrial Past

    June 9, 2010, by Sara




    The existence of Truffles Tribeca probably made the rezoning of northern Tribeca from primarily industrial to residential and family-friendly inevitable. And it's on the way right now! DNAinfo notes that the city has released its final North Tribeca rezoning proposal for public comment. So what are we looking at?

    The area that will be allowed the heaviest development is right around the ever-popular Holland Tunnel, with building heights and densities limited on the quieter streets to the east and west. After some community whining, the Department of City Planning limited developers' affordable housing incentives to the Holland Tunnel area as well. Residents of illegal lofts zoned for manufacturing will be able to apply for residential certificates of occupancy and stop living in the shadows. But Tribeca won't be giving up its industrial roots completely—the furniture making and machine repair industries will still be allowed past the velvet rezoning ropes.

    ^Not surprised about not allowing bigger buildings in exchange for affordable housing. I hope we don't get more of this though:



    City Planning gave the developer a variance to build this but didn't force them to build something more pleasing on the waterfront no less.

    The biggest parcel in that area is the bulky but low Verizon building at 34 - 50 Varick between Laight and Ericsson Place that faces onto the Holland Tunnel circle (the former site of St. John's Chapel). That would seem to be prime for development at some point in the not too distant future.

    If only we had a regular poster who is familiar with downtown telecom buildings.

    Is what goes on in that Verizon building easily movable? Or is it an essential bit of Verizon property?

    Much of the proposed rezoning area is already historic districs. Unfortunately, not along West St.

    I've never been in that building, even when it was part of the Bell System. I know it never had any major exchanges or switches.

    The one thing that makes it difficult to relocate telco equipment is the cabling into the building. I doubt that's the case here. Coincidentally, I'll be seeing someone who worked in 40 Varick some years ago at the end of this month. I'll try to get some info.

    Cost of a Private Tribeca Suburb: Around $24 Million

    June 10, 2010, by Joey



    Tribeca's new suburbanites have been outed by the Post's Jennifer Gould Keil. The buyers of the massive mansion at 2 N Moore Street—a hybrid of the old NoMoore Bar and a new six-story building dubbed "Our Suburb" by the family that built it—are Mark and Noelle Zittman. Nice couple, so what'd they pay? Nearly $24 million, according to Keil, which falls short of the downtown townhouse record but is still a nice chunk of change for the pool, three-car garage and other trappings of quiet country life. The 11,300sqft spread went into contract in February and was originally listed for $35 million. Fair deal for the burbs?

    Bumped into this one at Canal and Washington. Can anyone identify it?

    471 Washington St. Dormant for a year. Looks like it's alive.

    They re-started at 471 Washington a few weeks ago. Curbed lists a few projects back in motion after the long stall, including this one and another in North-ish Tribeca (the other is 240 W Broadway, but the design team there seems to have changed).

    Another NT development at 31-33 Vestry is also moving ahead, seemingly without much of a stall, and looks to have recently topped out. But the one it backs up to at 52 Laight has been under a white tarp for months with little indication that anything is happening there. And a block over at 71 Laight, where proposed fraternal twins are supposed to rise, nothing is happening.
