Exterior work is wrapping up on 100 Franklin Street in Tribeca, a residential building designed, developed, and built by DDG. The intricate 200-foot-long stretch of hand-laid Petersen Tegl bricks that enclose the main six- and eight-story eastern profile is complete, revealing a number of subtle and distinctive details. The development is located in the Tribeca East Historic District on a narrow triangular property and yields a total of ten full-floor residences. Douglas Elliman is in charge of sales for the units, which range from 1,427 to 3,673 square feet.

Recent photos from Tectonic reveal the state of work at the site, which is bound by Franklin Street to the south, Sixth Avenue and Church Street to the east, and White Street to the north.

The green sidewalk scaffolding on the southern end by Franklin Street has been completely removed, exposing the craftsmanship in the detailed brickwork. The sidewalks are partially complete and will continue to be formed on the northern section of the property once more of the construction equipment is taken away. Some small portions of the façade await completion on the narrow end by White Street and at the center of the edifice where the massing bends to conform with Sixth Avenue.

The building contains two penthouse units featuring expansive private outdoor terraces. Both homes are accessible by a direct elevator entry. Paris-based artist and designer Charlotte Taylor was hired by DDG to create permanent art pieces throughout the property, while two model showrooms for the address were created by The Future Perfect and ASH.

Construction on 100 Franklin Street appears as if it could be finished before the end of the year.

    Great subtle craftsmanship accompanied with excellent design makes this a unique building

  3. How does an eight story building contain ten full-floor residences?

    You neglected to mention if/when work on the adjacent pocket park which was promised to the neighborhood will take place.
