Carter's View

The City Council has given final planning approval for the first project in New York City by acclaimed Mexican architect Enrique Norten.

When completed in 2007, the development at 1 York Street in TriBeCa by Stan Perelman will have 43 condominium apartments and a 47-car garage. A model of the project is shown at the left.

The project consists of an existing 6-story structure bounded by York, Canal and Laight Streets, the Avenue of the Americas and St. John's Place, to which 6 setback stories will be added. The added floors will have glass-enclosed penthouses with 360 degree views of the skyline. The building will contain a 14,000-sq.-ft. community center that will be used by the Chinese American Planning Council that is now located in the building.

It will also have an automated parking system in which residents can retrieve their cars from computer terminals in the garage or their own loft.

Mr. Norten, whose firm, TEN Arquitectos, is based in Mexico City and has an office here, is the architect of two other very important projects now in planning: Harlem Park, a 380-ft.-high, mixed-use project with an undulating facade on 125th Street and Park Avenue, and a new Brooklyn Public Library for the Visual and Performing Arts.

Models, renderings and computer graphics of these three projects are now on view, through October 30, at the Museum of the City of New York on Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street.

The City Council approved the project August 17, 2005.
