The uniquely detailed façade of 100 Franklin Street in the Tribeca East Historic District is beginning to be revealed. The residential project consists of conjoined triangular-shaped buildings on a narrow property, yielding ten full-floor residences. Half of the scaffolding and white sheathing that was covering the main eastern elevation has now been disassembled, exposing its detailed masonry craftsmanship. DDG is the architect of the project. The intricately detailed curtain wall uses hand-laid Petersen Tegl bricks. Douglas Elliman is in charge of handling sales.

The juxtaposition between the arched windows on 17 White Street and the simplistic window panels on 100 Franklin Street creates an interesting contrast. The structures are separated by a pitted masonry surface and a stripe of black painted bricks. Photo by Michael Young

There will be two penthouse units with expansive private outdoor terraces, both accessible by direct elevator entry. DDG hired Paris-based artist and designer Charlotte Taylor to create new permanent art pieces for the complex.

A model unit was created for 100 Franklin Street, which was designed by The Future Perfect. It features furniture by Chris Wolston, lighting fixtures by Charles De Lisle, woven and hand-tufted rugs by Swedish textile brand Katshall, drapery by COPE, wallpaper by Calico, curated art by Katya Valevich with ceramics by Lana Kova, painted triptychs by Pajtim Osmanaj, encaustic sculptures by Lerone Wilson, and several works from Portuguese firm De La Espada by artists such as Neri & Hu, Matthew Hilton, Luca Nichetto, and Jason Miller.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Colors come to boss in the building, I don’t have interrogatory. And interplaying with brick and windows. (Thanks to Michael Young)

  2. More interesting than just another glass hi-rise.

  3. What I particularly like about the brick facade is that it’s a subtle nod to both the nearby Western Union Building and the AT&T Building (both by architect Ralph Walker), each just a block or 2 away. It uses similarly colored/sized brick and echoes the brickwork around the windows of these masterpieces. The Nicely done.

    This new project just reinforces that DDG does beautifully-crafted work. Well done!

    those missing bricks look dumb

  6. Won’t they become birds nests? Will lead to expensive HOA fees to maintain.

  7. Missing bricks my ass! Where is that guy who climbed the NYT building?
