Over a year after developers, Cape Church Associates purchased a property on the corner of Church and Warren Streets in Tribeca, renderings have been unveiled for the 12-story building that will bring 23 condos to the neighborhood, the New York Times reports.
30 Warren Street, as the building is known, will be a giant block of concrete, but should that paint a bleak vision of what the structure will look like, the architects, Post-Office Architectes told the Times that concrete on the exteriors will be less than an inch thick, but will continue to be strong through a set of high strength fibers.
The apartments range from 1,000 square foot one-bedrooms and are as big as 2,700 square foot three-bedrooms. What's unique to the building are the single pane windows, and 13-foot long windows installed in the living rooms of each of the apartments. The windows will be operated through a motorized switch, though they only open a couple of inches. Though if you think about it most residents are probably looking to avoid the sounds of the busy streets outside, and for that purpose, the developers are triple-glazing the windows.
Cape Church purchased the site in April 2014 for $35 million. The plot was once home to a 12-apartment residential building and several small businesses on the ground floor. That building will be torn down to make room for the new one.
Sales at 30 Warren are being handled by the Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, and prices are expected to start at $2,400 per square foot. The project is located just a few blocks away from the bluestone-quarried, 12 Warren Street.
