Curbed Inside visits the interior of a structure with an eye towards revealing the design and architecture. Got a place for us to check out? Drop a line.
From the outside, One York?the boutique luxury condo building just south of Canal Street from Mexican starchitect Enrique Norten (of TEN Arquitectos)?has the tendency to look like a glass dagger crudely inserted into a pair of Tribeca oldtimers, a physical manifestation of the oft-debated struggle between preservation and development in the city. It's not until you climb inside the 32-unit building that you understand Norten's vision?to improve upon something classic, not just overpower it. In simple terms: One York turned out cool as hell (Enrique must think so, anyway: he bought in the building).
Developer Stan Perelman was nice enough to give us a top-to-bottom tour of One York, which is still very much under construction. It's all presented above, from the $25 million penthouse to telecom mogul Michael Hirtenstein's collection of apartments in the building, which is now hovering at six units and a combined $35 million in acquisitions and build-out (that's his hot tub above). What isn't shown above is the first finished space, the model residence on the fifth floor. That will be coming up tomorrow.
