Back in February, Tribeca Citizen posted the first images for DDG’s new condo project coming to 12 Warren Street, in Tribeca. Since then, construction has made major headway, a teaser site has gone live, and now a tipster has sent along a new exterior of the building, as well as the first interior. The building is technically an alteration of an existing structure, which will be expanded from 37,268 square feet and five floors to 50,131 square feet spread over twelve floors. Including the bulkhead, the height of the old building will more than double, from 73 feet up to 159 feet. The entirety of the project will be residential, divided between thirteen condominiums. HTO Architect is the architect of record and DDG is the design architect.
Configurations will range from full-floor homes to duplex and triplexes, and units will average 3,060 square feet. Most residences will feature private outdoor spaces and direct elevator entry.
The exterior of the building will be faced in bluestone, and even the balconies will be covered in the material. Typically, balconies are value-engineered afterthoughts enshrined in boring glass, but in this case, they will form the basis for plantings and greenery that will add an attractive touch of nature.
DDG is especially experienced when it comes to greenery and facades, and 12 Warren looks to extend the trend begun at the firm’s 41 Bond and 345meatpacking projects, which include landscaped façades, rooftops and terraces.
The interior shows an enormous open layout, and in keeping with the exterior, bits of bluestone are piled in Jenga-like fashion across the room. Per the tipster, The Future Perfect will be curating the model residence.
Completion of the building is expected in early 2016, and sales will begin this fall, although pricing is not yet publicly available.
