    Nice Tower! But looking at the various renders on the website it seems they've randomly stuck it into some unavailable lot along the west side, while also showing it placed somewhere along the East River in the vicinity of the Citicorp building and elsewhere.

    People on other websites speculate that it's either the old gas station on Canal and West Street or a site on Greenwich and Spring.

    Possibly the site on the north of Spring between Greenwich & Washington. The gas station site doesn't fit that Hudson River view image they show, which places it to the east of the Holland Tunnel Vent structure on the north side of Canal.

    It's a render created to generate buzz. It's not a proposal for anything in the works. Look at the shot where they show the B of A tower in the distance, apparently a mash-up of the West Side Hiway and 42nd Street. Or is that an old render of the earlier 1WTC in the distance? Doesn't seem to matter, 'cuz it's got folks talking

    Upscale, With Rough Edges Intact

    By LAURA KUSISTO

    TriBeCa's northern tip has long been stuck in the neighborhood's gritty past, while the area to the south has been flooded with upscale condos.

    But in a surprising reversal, real-estate prices in northern TriBeCa, the triangle of real estate between Canal Street and North Moore, now surpass those in the area's southern reaches.


    The recently renovated Pier 25, which has a miniature-golf course, beach volleyball
    and new playgrounds.


    The median price of condos on the market in northern TriBeCa is $3.3 million, or $1,472 a square foot, according to StreetEasy data analyzed by The Wall Street Journal. The median price of a condo in southern TriBeCa is $2.8 million, or $1,268 a square foot, the data show.

    TriBeCa north commands higher prices these days in part because it has emerged as an exclusive enclave for young families and secretive celebrities aiming to escape the hordes of tourists in SoHo and southern TriBeCa.

    Northern TriBeCa was designated a historic district in 1992, a move that has helped to protect its 19th- and 20th-century industrial buildings.

    "You can never build a glass tower, which is great. There's a mutual respect for all of the buildings and all of their light and air and views," said Wendy Maitland, a managing director at Town Residential.

    Indeed, despite the recent influx of upscale condos, northern TriBeCa retains the feel of a gritty industrial neighborhood.

    "There's a sense of a lack of discovered spaces left in the city, and this is unfolding in a lot of people's imagination as an undiscovered neighborhood," said Tom Elliott, a vice president at the El-Ad Group.

    Of course, these newcomers don't want to deal with the drafty spaces or intermittent hot water that many of TriBeCa's earlier loft-dwellers endured.

    "They want a sense that they're roughing it by pioneering a new section of town, yet they want the luxuries of a fine condominium," Mr. Elliott added.



    El-Ad recently began marketing the neighborhood's newest residential project, 250 West St. The converted, century-old factory, where prices for a three-bedroom condo can reach $10 million, retains some of the raw edges but also includes amenities like a 61-foot indoor pool.

    That would have been inconceivable a decade ago, when locals remember it as a desolate, and even dangerous, area.

    "Duane Park was a dump for old refrigerators and ovens. The street had no street lights and no stop lights," said David Bouley, who opened a number of renowned restaurants in the neighborhood starting in the mid-'80s.

    His eponymous restaurant on Duane Street was rated by Zagat as the preferred spot to eat "the last meal of your life"—a statement that took on an all-too-literal meaning as patrons were whisked into cabs at the end of the night for fear of being mugged, Mr. Bouley recalls.

    The first major development to come to the area was One York, 32 condos in a converted Civil War-era warehouse.

    The project's developer, Stanley Perelman of Jani Real Estate, said that when he started marketing the building around 2008, it was a tough sell because the neighborhood remained rough around the edges.

    "At the time, that project wasn't for everybody. Today, it's for most people. In three or four years, it will be for everybody," he said.

    The success of One York, where sales prices averaged $2,000 a square foot, helped inspire a flurry of new developments, including the River Lofts at 416 Washington St. and the Sugar Warehouse at 79 Laight St.

    Many of these new condo buildings were completed just in time for the recession. But the lack of inventory in the neighborhood ensured that most of them have sold out at relatively strong prices.

    Still, the quiet neighborhood can feel deserted in the evenings, especially compared with southern TriBeCa and SoHo, with its bustling retail and night life.
    With the exception of a handful of restaurants, such as Robert De Niro's Locanda Verde, the neighborhood offers few pastimes.

    "You won't find any of the big chain operations," said Gerard Longo, of Madison Estates, who developed three projects in the area. "You can play stickball in the street."

    The city is trying to help change that, with a program to redevelop Pier 25 and Pier 26 to include a playground, a putting golf course, beach volleyball, a dog run and a restaurant.
    Still, even some developers say they hope the neighborhood's character won't be radically altered by its growing cachet.

    "Much of New York is getting homogenized. Northern TriBeCa is not," said Mr. Elliott. "It's got a bohemian quality that a lot of people gravitate to."

    Is this supposed to be a joke LOL? In 2008 this neighborhood was absolutely NOT in any way rough around the edges.

    Pure marketing BS. Put another Truffles in the mix and they'll kill that fantasy real quick. NTrib is about as one note resident-wise as it comes.

    250 West St



    A notch was cut out of the back wall to add more windows.


    In a past renovation from the original warehouse to commercial offices, the building lost its cornice, replaced by ugly metal cladding.


    From website images, it looks like a cornice will be installed, and the office-type single pane glass replaced.

    Taconic is also the developer of the torqued building opposite the High Line at 837 Washington, designed by Morris Adjmi. So that could be a good indication that Adjmi's terrific (and approved) design for this site will be built.

    52-54 Lispenard Decides Not to Demo, Wins OK from LPC

    by Pete Davies



    After Murat Bugdaycay, the developer of two landmarked Tribeca buildings at 52-54 Lispenard Street, got a "no go" from the Landmarks Preservation Commission for the previous demolition plan, the development team returned this week with a new proposal and won the Commissioner's approval. Instead of razing the fire damaged remnants of 52 Lispenard, the creative crew from Section F Design came up with a three-story vertical extension that one Commissioner praised as a "worthy riff on cast iron." The latest design is a framework of welded heavy gauge steel over a stucco facade that's both sleekly modern and reverential to the style of the landmarked area. Windows will be set back within sloping metal panels, and the entire facade better relates to the proportions of the existing 54 Lispenard, where a full restoration of the original cast iron will take place. Down at the street, both 52 and 54 will get new storefronts and the steps of vaulted lights will be restored where possible, while new ramps and stairs in diamond plate will be added.

    Up top, the penthouse additions have been reconfigured to minimize the visual impact from down below. Some folks at the LPC still see the rooftop aeries as too big and too visible. Apparently those details will be worked out before construction begins. But the basics of the Studio F plan were OK'd. The two penthouses will be differentiated by a slight setback at 54, and the facade materials will be contrasting. 54 Lispenard will get a hip-roofed addition clad in stucco and zinc, while the penthouse at 52 Lispenard will get a darker stucco face. Both are proposed to set back about 15 feet from the main facade, although a deeper setback might be in store before plans are finalized. The filings at DOB for 52-54 Lispenard show that the architect of record is Studio JS2; some zoning issues are pending.

    Same developers are about to start another condo at 11 N Moore. Also designed by Adjmi. Permits have already been filed and the parking lot has been closed.
