Background

101 Warren Street is situated within the former artist's haven and current celebrity-central, TriBeCa neighborhood of Manhattan, close to Ground Zero.

The mixed-use building's modern construction, high-end amenities and convenience (there's a Whole Foods in the building), makes this a destination for both renters and those looking to own.

This 35 story building also features a hidden treasure at its core, where a fifth floor courtyard reveals a pine tree forest, accessible only to residents of the building.

Location

The TriBeCa (Triangle Below Canal Street) area developed as commercial center in the mid-19th century. This center of commerce grew and developed in strength through the early part of the 20th century as new subway lines, opened the area. Post-World War II, though, the area began a decline that lasted until the late 1960 and early 1970s artists began to move into the area because of the cheap rents, large spaces and the neighborhood's character. This is also the time that the name TriBeCa came define the area.

At its height, it was an artistic mecca. As those familiar with the creative-class theory of economic development will know, the proliferation of artists in an area is the first step towards gentrification. Few neighborhoods, anywhere, would see the type of gentrification that would happen here as by the mid-1980s, the trendiness of the area began to attract big names and big money to the area.

Aside from character, the community offers many amenities. The convenience of TriBeCa begins in the lobby of 101 Warren Street where you'll find both a Whole Foods Market and a Barnes and Noble. Numerous other markets and shopping is located in the area, for those with diverse tastes. Chinatown isn't far to the west. Schools and restaurants are just feet away from the building and are some of the best in the city. Less than a half-mile to the south lays the World Trade Center Memorial. The New York City Fire Museum and Financial Museum are also close at hand. Green space is only blocks away, while Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Staten Island ferry are less than a mile and a half from 101 Warren Street.

Both subway and bus are easily accessible from the building, less than 0.2 of a mile. TriBeCa is also well known for the TriBeCa film festival.

Construction

This Edward J. Minskoff Equities developed concrete structure building offers a unique aesthetic experience. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, 101 Warren Street offers a modernist appeal. The outer facade, to which the building owes its unique appeal, is a mix of granite and glass.

Pets and Rentals are allowed in 101 Warren Street. There are no age restrictions on residents in this building. Very few units have associated outdoor space where a barbecue would be feasible.

Sustainability

The building has a 101 tree pine forest growing at its core. This feature helps alleviate issues like urban heat islands [3] The forest of Austrian pines is considered among the most creative (and difficult) ways to incorporate a green design into an urban high-rise [4]

Trivia

101 Warren Street had been earmarked for a 35 story office building, until the September 11th attacks. Earlier this year, it was reported that Jim Carrey was considering a unit in this building. This building is perhaps most well known for fighting a change in school zoning. The construction of another large condominium nearby meant that the school catchment areas would change due to shifting population. The residents of 101 Warren Street fought tooth and nail for the right to stay in their original catchment area, and won, rather than be moved into a neighboring school zone. It was a very bitter fight with a significant number of headlines, locally. Well, it's famous for that and the fact that there's a forest and a maze on the fifth floor of the building [5][6]
