The website for DDG's 13-story condo at 12 Warren Street in Tribeca has launched, and it brings with it the first look at the luxury building's interiors. Rather than render the apartments, the developer has taken a different approach and has built out an actual model unit in the building.
The development, which looks like it was pulled out right from a rock quarry, stands out for its use of bluestone on the building's facade. The rocks were quarried in the Catskill mountains in upstate New York. While a bluestone facade may seem out of place in the city these days, the Times says it's part of a larger masonry trend that's becoming increasingly visible in luxury buildings, especially those developed by DDG.
The eco-friendly building features 13 condos divided between townhouses, full-floor apartments, and half-floor apartments. Most apartments will have private elevator entries. On the higher floors, residents have views of the Hudson River on one side and the Brooklyn Bridge on the other. Other apartment perks include 10- to 22-feet ceiling heights in the living area, white oak flooring, bluestone accents throughout the apartment, and zoned climate control.
The building's amenities will include a fitness center, a 24-hour doorman, and concierge services. Sales for the building are expected to launch in the next couple of months.
