Construction Tour: 70 Vestry

Construction work on the exterior wall is nearly complete at 70 Vestry, Related Companies's 14-story, 46-unit luxury residential condo tower on the Tribeca waterfront. Design of the building is by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and employs the firm's signature blend of materials and details that evoke pre-war New York elegance and modern luxury. Massing of the 14-story building follows a c-shaped structure with setbacks starting on the seventh floor, affording many units a gracious private outdoor terrace. The tower wraps around a central courtyard and porte-cochere. Construction on the courtyard should be complete by February of 2018.

The building's façade is clad in Beaumaniere limestone from a quarry in the French countryside south of Paris. Decorative metalwork ties the project into its Tribeca neighborhood context, where warehouse lofts are prevalent. Oversized casement windows offer panoramic views of the Hudson, including views of Hudson River Park and the iconic Statue of Liberty.
