Gilded Age Landmark in the Heart of TriBeCa

by | Aug 31, 2017 | Real Estate

Tracking the movement of privacy-seeking celebrities to New York City’s top desirable and classic neighborhoods, one of the most creative and daring new luxury residential projects is 443 Greenwich, a new condominium set inside a historic Gilded Age landmark in the heart of TriBeCa. Unlike the standard fare of new glass-walled towers Uptown, this prime New York-location offers timeless architecture in a private enclave attracting A-list property buyers from the worlds of entertainment, sports, finance, and tech.

Acclaimed for its landmark architecture, extraordinary finishes, a wealth of inspiring space and ultimate privacy in the perfect TriBeCa location, 443 Greenwich is a category unto itself. The developer MetroLoft is offering extraordinary, spacious homes up to six bedrooms — merging the spirit and physical forms of the 19th and 21st centuries into a unique, singular presence.

Led by Nathan Berman, MetroLoft’s visionary team has transformed this TriBeCa landmark while retaining significant architectural elements, such as the impossible-to-replace, 16-inch square Carolina Yellow Pine beams.

Reflecting the loft building’s rugged authenticity, the acclaimed design firm CetraRuddy has remastered Charles Haight’s original architecture, fusing classic proportions and silhouettes with contemporary textures, craftsmanship, and luxury finishes.

The design includes exclusive kitchens fabricated by Christopher Peacock, hand-selected marble and schist, acid-etched glass, 8-inch-wide oak plank floors, and accents of antiqued bronze and polished stainless steel.

As reported by Interior Design magazine, the team “set out to impress buyers who appreciate architectural subtlety — and can pay for it — with a design that is equally heritage compatible and just as sophisticated.” 

Not surprisingly, this TriBeCa landmark-designated property—an exciting,  private, and desirable new enclave—is called home by several of Hollywood’s leading film actors as well as internationally renowned sports figures and high-tech moguls. Exclusive and one-of-a-kind.

Now hailed as TriBeCa’s celebrity haven and “most private address,” 443 Greenwich affords drive-in/drive-out underground parking and drop-off with valet services and a second lobby with access to private elevators opening directly into residents’ homes.

At ground level, the full-service, 24-hour lobby with white-glove building staff presents a magnificent, sculptural design with views of an extraordinary 4,000-square-foot landscaped interior garden designed by the renowned HMWhite.

On the rooftop, 443 Greenwich provides residents a lush, 5,000-square-foot deck with trellises, outdoor showers, and wet bar. Other amenities include a fitness center by The Wright Fit with children’s playroom, a hammam with men’s and women’s locker rooms, and a 75-foot lap pool with travertine marble walls. There are private storage rooms and a large, temperature-controlled wine cellar.

The property is marketed exclusively by Cantor-Pecorella. Remaining residences range from $7 million to $27.5 million, with a remarkable 9,000-square-foot penthouse offered for $55 million. These full-service condominiums have two to six bedrooms, and up to 6.5 baths.

With its authentic, red-brick loft architecture and the secluded refuge within, 443 Greenwich is a veritable oasis removed from the bustle of urban life yet only steps away from New York’s best restaurants and nightlife.

“We’re creating an environment that is genuine TriBeCa yet also paparazziproof,” said MetroLoft’s Berman.

“We started with centuries of Manhattan history and offer the most compelling modern design and the highest degree of privacy within a quiet, protective layout.”
