Carter's View

A large "green" condominium apartment tower is under construction in the north end of Battery Park City, just to the north of the World Financial Center.

Known as 1 River Terrace, it being developed by the Sheldrake Organization and will be a 32-story, 320-unit condominium apartment building on a site bounded by Murray and Vesey Streets and North End Avenue.

The building, which will have a curved base facing the Hudson River, like some of the buildings on Riverside Drive, will house the first public library at Battery Park City.

Designed by Polshek Partnership LLC, the building is configured in a U-shape with a 14-story west wing facing the river, a 13-story east wing facing Lower Manhattan and a 32-story facing south. The wings will have landscaped roof gardens and the tower will have a 4-story-high, glass-enclosed portico/lobby.

The "green" building will have filtered air and water, non-emitting carpets and paints, and triple-layered windows, many of which are at the tower's corners.

It will also have a health club, a children's playroom, a bicycle storage room, a garage, a doorman and a concierge and a cold-storage room for perishable items. Ismael Leyva Architects P.C., is designing the apartments.

The handsome red-brick building is located between the Irish Hunger Memorial and the two-acre Teardrop Park.
