What's the secret of Truffles Tribeca's success? Easy: Opium beds and a liberal dress policy. The newish 291-unit luxury rental complex in the northwest corner of Tribeca is completely leased, save for seven "maisonette" units with their own private entrances onto the complex's massive courtyard?which we've become mightily obsessed with (more on that in a second). The maisonettes are now available following the completion?kinda?of construction. As you'll see, several of the units sport an "industrial look" that includes bare cement ceilings and exposed pipes. Those ceilings are a lofty 13' to 16' in these apartments, by the way. Care to know the cost of these rare Truffles?
Five of the private-entry units are studios with "home offices," ranging in size from 586 up to 841 square feet. Rents on those, the bigger the pricier, are $2,850 to $3,995 per month. There's a true one-bedroom unit, at 869 square feet, going for $4,195. Finally, the two-bedroom maisonette is commanding $5,900 for its 1,018 square feet. The Truffles gang estimates a Dec. 21 move-in date on these units if they're rented, and the gallery above has a few peeks into all seven Truffles "townhouses."
Now, the courtyard. The cobblestones are in, the turf is gone. The imposing gate is still there, making the enclosed area feel a bit like a prison rec yard. But another courtyard renovation is on the way, what we're told will be an outdoor extension of the wild-n-wacky Trufflesprivé residents lounge, constantly filled with pretty people whose employment status we're beginning to question. That should be done in February, and more details will be coming in the near future. Hopefully from Natasha herself.
