Foundation work is well underway at 83 Walker Street, a boutique luxury building in Tribeca just off Broadway. Soon, a nine-story, Landmarks Preservation Commission-approved condo will rise on the site – slightly larger than the nearby five- and six-story structures, indicating an uncharacteristic willingness by the LPC to accept something less than perfectly contextual.
“It’s a beautiful Tribeca building with a twist,” architect Morris Adjmi told the Commercial Observer in 2011, when they got a first look at the project.
“It’s an inversion of a cast iron building,” he continued. “It really informs us about the nature of a cast iron building: Originally they were built from components that were ordered from catalogs.”
The building’s nine units will be spread over 14,036 square feet of space, for an average unit size of more than 1,500 square feet. Abra is the developer, and construction began late last year and should wrap up by next summer.
