Great NYC Apartment Buildings: 101 Warren Street vs. 161 Duane Street

JUNE 1, 2012

Two great buildings in TriBeCa:
101 Warren Street vs. 161 Duane Street

The big-shouldered cast iron architecture of TriBeCa sets the stage for its current status as home to spacious lofts and some of Manhattan’s most celebrated new luxury apartment buildings. 101 Warren Street is among the most notable of a new wave of 21st century developments built to address every residential desire. The full-block development–consisting of a 35-story condominium tower and an adjacent mid-rise structure–is immediately recognizable by its elongated checkerboard-patterned granite-and-glass arcades. Within, the residents can enjoy an “artrium” with an elevated pine forest and a boxwood maze, city and Hudson River views, a fitness center and spa, attended parking and much more. Apartments offer several different layouts–including some with loggias, terraces, great rooms and galleries–and contain peerless high-end finishes. Nearby you’ll find Rockefeller Park, the Hudson River Greenway and the Financial District.

What makes 101 Warren Street special: Architectural innovation, unique interiors and unmatched amenities at this everything-under-one-roof residence in one of the city’s most coveted neighborhoods.

If you love to feel connected with NYC history while living at the heart one of its top residential neighborhoods, 161 Duane Street will likely catch your eye. Known as Mohawk Atelier after long-ago occupant Mohawk Electric Company, this distinctive 8-story condominium residence in the landmarked TriBeCa Historic District consists of two converted 19th century Romanesque Revival loft buildings that anchor the corner of Duane and Hudson streets, recognizable by a boldly rusticated two-story base and tall arched windows. The 12 apartments within resemble a dream of modern TriBeCa loft living, with a full-time attendant, private elevator access, open plan interior spaces, beamed ceilings and wood-burning fireplaces. Steps away are Duane Park, the TriBeCa Greenmarket and the neighborhood’s best shopping and restaurants.

What makes 161 Duane Street special: This elegant, historically significant building with spacious and gracious apartments in a landmarked district embodies the spirit of TriBeCa loft living.
