Construction scaffolding is down at 11 Beach, revealing the newly renovated façade of the 1910 office building. from developers HFZ Capital Group. Once home to the likes of Miramax Films, the conversion of the 10-story building into residential condos is led by developers HFZ Capital Group with design by BKSK Architects. Thomas Juul-Hansen is overseeing the interior design of the 27 residences. Both designers have worked on luxury buildings both new and conversions throughout the city that tap into its historical industrial style.
On the outside, the light tan brick facades of the building's three street frontages will remain, though the narrow windows will be replaced by new units that span two openings. Brick will be replaced by terra cotta at the horizontal spandrels, which will help to give the façade verticality as the remaining brick reads as vertical piers. A rusticated brick base and a new forged metal canopy will greet residents and add to the neighborhood streets ape. At the roof, residents will be able to take in dramatic views of Lower Manhattan, as well as access to a landscaped garden.
Construction is slated to wrap up sometime this year, bringing another restored piece of history to the TriBeCa neighborhood.
