Construction scaffolding has come down at 443 Greenwich, a 7-story restoration and renovation of an 1884 structure designed by Charles C. Haight. Once a book bindery, the structure will now house 53 large condo units from developers Metro Loft.
The building is located in the Tribeca North Historic District and is bounded by Desbrosses Street, Vestry Street, and Greenwich Street. Exterior detailing on the landmarked 7-story building includes more than 600 shutters that are being restored or replicated. A 4,000 square-foot courtyard populated with sassafras trees and designed by HM White is located at the center of the building's massive footprint.
Residents can enter the building from a private drop off located under the courtyard, which also offers a 15-car parking garage with charging stations. The barrel vaulted drop off and garage is accessed from the north or south via a gated ramp.
Also located in the cellar are the bulk of the building's amenities including: a 71 foot indoor lap pool, hamam (Turkish steam bath), a gym with yoga room run by the Wright Fit, a temperature controlled wine cellar, storage rooms, children's playroom, and a bike room.
443 Greenwich will contain 45 loft-style homes ranging from 2,900 SF to 4,250 SF, and 8 penthouses ranging from 5,000 SF to 9,300 SF, with interiors by CetraRuddy Architects. The 53 units will feature a modern take on the industrial Tribeca style. Exposed existing wood columns and beams and high ceilings will be complemented by modern conveniences, such as a 70 bottle wine fridge, two dishwashers, a warming drawer for cappuccino cups, custom door hardware, standalone tubs, marble accent walls in the bathrooms, and bidets.
The project should be completed later this year.
