New York-based DDG Partners is putting a modern spin on the traditional brick facade with their forthcoming condominium building in Tribeca. Although construction hasn't begun yet, the design is anticipating LEED certification thanks to its numerous green features including a green roof and eco-friendly cleaning program, among many other eco-amenities.
Located on 100 Franklin Street in the Tribeca East Historic District, the six-story building will contain residential units with commercial space on the ground floor. As far as design, the architects are paying a respectful nod to the area’s rich history by featuring a hand-laid brick facade using traditional masonry techinques. Once inside, however, the modern architectural details will include numerous eco-conscious features such as a green roof system, a green marquee, and a green cleaning program.
Additionally, future residents will be able to enjoy a private fitness center, a private elevator access to all residences, and bicycle storage rooms. Oh, and did we mention the landscaped green roof and private terraces?
