The last time we checked in with the development at 70 Vestry Street, details were rather scant: we knew Related was the developer, and that the building would encompass more than 150,000 square feet, and that was about it. (YIMBY later revealed that Robert A.M. Stern would be the architect of record.) But with the launch of a teaser site for the project comes new details, namely that the 14-floor condo will have 46 units, a limestone exterior (duh, it's Stern), and will be ready for move-ins by 2018.
This isn't Stern's first limestone-clad condo in Lower Manhattan: 30 Park Place is well on its way to opening. But the building at 70 Vestry has some distinct differences: its waterfront location, for one (which will inevitably lend itself to ridiculous views of the Hudson River and beyond), and the fact that it's all residential, rather than a split with a hotel. The interiors will be done by Daniel Romualdez, who's worked with Daphne Guinness and Tory Burch, among others. No word on pricing yet, but given the confluence of factors here—a Stern building in one of Manhattan's priciest neighborhoods with what are sure to be large, lavish apartments—and you can bet that these units are going to be expensive.
