In TriBeCa, Squeezing in Some Condo Pizazz
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/11/re...zazz.html?_r=0

Quote:
And now a new 21-story condo, to be called Tribeca Royale, has been refocusing attention on the area. When completed in the fall of 2014, it is expected to be the first to endow Park Place with opulent finishes and envelope-pushing architecture.

To rise at No. 19, between Broadway and Church Street and a block from the Park51 site, the building will contain 24 apartments. About half will take up an entire floor and run through the block, meaning their back walls will be near Murray Street. The full-floor versions have a bedroom and three full baths.

A head-turning design from the architect Ismael Leyva, this tall, skinny and shiny building may win points for boldness on a block with many brick and brownstone low-rises. It could also be appreciated for making do with so little space.

Tribeca Royale’s lot, which is squeezed between a camping supplier called Tent & Trails and an office advertising “holistic dentistry,” is tiny, just 25 feet across. And it may feel even tighter, as metal braces have been inserted between the walls of the two adjacent buildings, as if to pry them apart.

Mr. Leyva, who focuses almost exclusively on condos in New York, has worked with narrow spaces before. One of his buildings, Icon, a 122-unit condo at 785 Eighth Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen, has 43 stories shoehorned into a 28-foot-wide lot.

The space available for Tribeca Royale “was very small,” Mr. Leyva said, “so we tried to make it very elegant.” Even though the apartments have a railroad-style layout, the generous use of glass and terraces at the ends ensures that they won’t seem gloomy, he explained.

Kitchen counters will be quartz, bathroom cabinets teak; windows will stretch from floor to ceiling. Terraces that will line both the front and back facades will be oval in shape, giving them the appearance of petals on a branch.

The basement will have a 1,500-square-foot fitness center, and part of the second floor a shared outdoor space.

The building, whose foundation was being poured on a recent afternoon, is being developed by ABN Realty, whose projects in New York include the Chelsea Royale, a 20-unit condo on West 24th Street. Dr. Chun Ka Luk, a onetime medical researcher who went into real estate in the 1980s, heads the company.
Quote:
With development costs of $20 million and with its loans in place, the building awaits approval of its offering plan, Dr. Luk said; marketing is to begin in a few months, though no broker has yet been chosen.

Pricing is still up in the air, but Dr. Luk said units would most likely cost about $2,000 a square foot, or about $2.8 million for the 1,400-square-foot full-floor units. That compares favorably with about $3,500 a foot for flashy new condos nearby like 56 Leonard Street.

“We are trying to be realistic; this is a neighborhood in transition,” he said about an area with several vacant storefronts.

Indeed, the area’s many construction fences and sidewalk sheds attest to a makeover. This spring, Silverstein Properties announced that work would begin work in the fall on a Four Seasons hotel-condo at 30 Park Place, across from Tribeca Royale, on a long-stalled site where a foundation is in the ground. Financing is finally in place for the $930 million project, according to the developer, which is based two blocks away at Seven World Trade Center.

The building, designed by Robert A. M. Stern, will probably make its own statement. It will measure 926 feet, eclipsing the nearby 792-foot Woolworth Building, which is adding condos at its crown, as well as the 870-foot New York by Gehry, a gleaming rental at 8 Spruce Street.

Though Tribeca Royale clocks in at just 292 feet, Dr. Luk isn’t worried about being overshadowed, by his neighbors, especially the Four Seasons project. “If anything,” he said, “it will make the neighborhood classier and nicer.” And, perhaps, cement a new kind of legacy.

I found it in Google Maps. Is the base extending all the way to Murray St or is there something else to be built behind it?

Great tower btw.

For a building so small it is really moving at a snail's pace!

Might not be easy building a midrise with such limited space.

i like it - a good example for lack of building land and how it is maximum used in cities like NY.

It should be less of an issue now that it passed its neighbors
