460 Washington Street is finally going vertical, and construction is already two floors above street level; as of the last update, from July of 2013, the site was a hole in the ground. Located on the northern tip of TriBeCa, Related is developing, and Ismael Leyva and BKSK are designing.
Permits indicate the building will stand 10 stories and 110 feet tall, with 107 units within. Accounting for TriBeCa’s predominantly low-rise character, BKSK has included setbacks along the project’s street frontage, beginning on the seventh floor. The envelope then recedes 15 feet along Watts and Washington Streets and 10 feet on West Street, allowing upper residences to enjoy outdoor space.
The vicinity is seeing a mini-development boom; on the same block, 290 West Street is also rising, and to the east, new projects include a hotel at 503 Canal Street, and another Related building at 261 Hudson Street. Infill projects are quickly replacing under-utilized lots as the neighborhood continues to mature, and what was formerly a ‘no man’s land’ is becoming much more like the rest of Tribeca.
Aesthetically, 460 Washington will be attractive, and the design’s consideration for its surrounds will result in a positive addition to the neighborhood. The building’s western side will have permanent unobstructed views of the Hudson River; when combined with the ample outdoor space, prices are likely to be high, and the development will definitely cater to the luxury market.
On-site signage states an anticipated completion date of Fall 2015.
