Micro-Hood Alert: NoBatt West? Tribattery?

Like Alphabet City before it, the Battery Park City/Tribeca border zone gets the hype treatment from the Post's Home section today. Specifically, the focus is on two buildings, 101 Warren (top left) and the Riverhouse (top right), which are similar in location and shape, but that's about it. Both developments are being marketed by the Sunshine Group, but with different identities: 101 Warren is a luxury building for the high-class, art-loving yuppy who wants super-high-end finishes and amenities and access to big-box retail, while Riverhouse is a luxury "green" building for the high-class, art-loving yuppy who wants high-end finishes and amenities and the comfort of believing they're doing something for the environment?but not too much (hence the underground parking garage). Fifthy units in the Riverhouse have sold in three months, while 60% of 101 Warren's 228 slightly-pricier units have gone since March. We just wish these buildings were neighbors, so we could practice our kicking game.
