Tribeca Citizen spotted this rendering of 261 Hudson Street, the new 80-20 rental building (80 percent market-rate, 20 percent affordable) being developed in Tribeca by Related and designed by architect Ismael Leyva.
In total, the 12-story, 168,000-square-foot building will have 201 units, 41 of which will be affordable. It will also offer amenities such as bike storage, a gym, and a computer room, which have already been a source of controversy as Community Board 2 has expressed concern that the building amenities will be offered only to the market-rate tenants, a practice that has become increasingly common over the last year or so. CB2 has vowed to keep an eye on the developer, and apply "pressure" in whatever way possible.
UPDATE: According to Related, "The amenities are offered to all of the residents on the same basis. Some have a nominal fee and some are free, but all are available to every tenant regardless of income."
