Construction is wrapping up at 100 Franklin Street in Tribeca, where the 200-foot-long stretch of hand-laid Petersen Tegl bricks that clad the building’s eastern profile is now complete. Designed, developed and built by DDG, the residential structure is located in the Tribeca East Historic District and consists of conjoined triangular-shaped buildings on a narrow property yielding a total of ten full-floor residences. Douglas Elliman is in charge of sales, which launched in April with units ranging from 1,427 square feet to 3,673 square feet.

Photos of 100 Franklin Street’s exterior show how its richly colored red bricks blend with the Art Deco appearance of 32 Avenue of the Americas, aka the AT&T Long Distance Building.

Two penthouse units with expansive private outdoor terraces will both be accessible by a direct elevator entry. DDG hired Paris-based artist and designer Charlotte Taylor to create new permanent art pieces throughout 100 Franklin Street. The Future Perfect designed a model unit for the address on the second floor featuring 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. A model home designed by ASH was also recently revealed.

The scaffolding is still up but should be dismantled sometime shortly, and work on the ground floor should also conclude in the coming weeks.

Completion of 100 Franklin Street is expected before the end of the year.

  1. Thanks to Michael Young: Your report I think it is a public display of entertainment, in terms of revealing beautiful designs; unpretentious because of reasons for showing development. Agree or disagree, like or dislike, everyone can comment either before construction or construction is complete. Open freely without violating other people’s rights.

    Truly unique and beautiful.

  3. I’m a contrarian by nature, but I can’t find fault in this project.

  4. Great workmanship by BTR Innovative Builders. Not their first project completed in impeccable fashion
