290 West

More construction scaffolding has come down at VE Equities' 290 West, revealing most of the metal and glass façade. Located in Tribeca, the 9-story condo from Adjmi & Androeli offers 11 loft-style apartments that overlook the Hudson River. A setback at the sixth floor will allow for outdoor terraces for units occupying that floor. The gridded steel and glass façade evokes the industrial character of the neighborhood. The larger steel elements correspond to the location of floor slabs and columns, while a larger 2-story box tops the west façade and indicates the double height space of the penthouse unit. Completion is expected later this year.
