NEW YORK, April 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Related Companies today announced the commencement of sales for its highly anticipated luxury condominium development 70 Vestry Street in Manhattan's coveted Tribeca neighborhood. Located on a prime stretch of the waterfront and Hudson River Park, the firm engaged preeminent architectural firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects to design the building's exterior, while also commissioning "AD100" designer Daniel Romualdez to bring his private client experience and craftsmanship to the interiors and amenities. Ismael Leyva Architects, P.C. is the executive and residential architect on the project. Together the team created an intimate 14-story building offering 46 grand-scale residences and an unprecedented offering of amenities and services.
"70 Vestry boasts a perfect waterfront location along Hudson River Park which is exceptionally rare in New York. Inspired by this exquisite location, we wanted to design a development that encompassed all the best architectural details from the neighborhood while offering discerning buyers a lifestyle that has never been available in Tribeca until now. The building not only offers residents access to the very best of Tribeca, but also the privacy and intimacy they desire," said Benjamin Joseph, Executive Vice President from Related Companies.
Inspired by the architecture of Tribeca's great industrial buildings, Robert A.M. Stern Architects designed 70 Vestry to make an impact on the Downtown streetscape while blending seamlessly and contextually with its surroundings. Clad in a warm-hued Beaumaniere limestone quarried on the banks of the Seine, the stone façade and decorative metalwork carry echoes of Tribeca's collection of century-old loft warehouses. Stepping back as it rises — creating generous terraces for many residences —the limestone façade is punctuated by operable casement and oversized picture windows.
"One of the great pleasures and responsibilities of architecture is to extend the language of a place," said Robert A.M. Stern, Founder and Senior Partner of Robert A.M. Stern Architects. "The wonderful robust classicism of the lofts and warehouses that has made Tribeca such a desirable neighborhood never made it all the way to the Hudson River, which for over a hundred years was lined with shipping. Now that the riverside has been remade for recreation, 70 Vestry is designed to take advantage of the spirit of the neighborhood and the spectacular views. 70 Vestry brings Tribeca to the riverfront."
Inside 70 Vestry, award-winning designer Daniel Romualdez, who has designed private homes for some of the top names in fashion and beauty, carefully curated magnificent residences that allow for a sense of symmetry, proportion, and grace while ensuring homes are drenched in natural light. The 46 residences, ranging in size from two- to five- bedrooms, boast ceiling heights of 10 to over 12 feet, oversized windows framing awe-inspiring Hudson River views, wide-plank oak flooring and gracious entry foyers. Many of the residences also have libraries and studies.
"This is a place for the sophisticated design aficionado, someone who is looking for a combination of grandeur and coziness. High ceilings and contemporary furniture and art with soft luxurious upholstery in a tone on tone palette," said Daniel Romualdez of Daniel Romualdez Architects.
In a city of skyscrapers, 70 Vestry is an urban oasis within the heart of bustling Tribeca. Residents enter through arcades adjacent to a porte-cochere entrance for cars that open to a private cobblestone garden court and then into a double-height lobby. The court also provides access to the building's automated parking system.
In addition to enjoying the lifestyle benefits of magical sunsets and open sky views, 70 Vestry offers a remarkable amenity and service package rarely found in buildings twice its size. A suite of informal rooms leads off the lobby, each one offering a choice of leisure opportunities and acting as an extension of the owner's home on the floors above. Directly off the lobby is a library that leads to an intimate café. Designed for morning coffee and evening cocktails alike, residents have designated lockers here to store their favorite items. Enter through another doorway, partitioned by an impressive solid oak sliding door, and there is a billiards room. At the heart of these shared spaces lies the lounge and dining suite. Designed for both formal dinner parties and relaxed gatherings, the lounge has been furnished with 70 Vestry's signature pairing of classic and contemporary pieces, based around a palette of neutral tones, suedes and velvets.
On the wellness level, nearly an entire floor has been designed to appeal to both heart and mind. The fitness club, outfitted by The Wright Fit, offers top-of-the-line equipment, an additional yoga/Pilates studio, international regulation singles squash court, an 82-foot lap pool, and sauna and steam rooms.
Residents will also adore "The Block at 70 Vestry", a children's playroom designed by the award-winning Roto studio to engage children through interactive activities with an art area, climbing structure, ball pit, slide, magnetic wall, and farmers market. Additionally, animal lovers will appreciate the Dog City pet spa offering a host of day care, grooming, boarding, and walking services for dogs and other select pets.
Rich in culture and history, and home to the finest shops and restaurants, Tribeca's storied streets appeal to a local and global audience, making it one of the world's most desired and distinctive neighborhoods. Adding to the allure is the neighborhood's famously rich architecture, destination galleries, museums and public art, which make it the cultural focal point of Downtown Manhattan.
