Background

200 Chambers Street, perched on the southernmost street of the area known as Tribeca, was designed by New York's renowned architect, Costas Kondylis. This firm has been responsible for designing close to 70 buildings in New York City, most notable the 72 story Trump World Tower. 200 Chambers Street is the first luxury high rise development in Tribeca. Originally designed by Sir Norman Foster as a 40 story building, at 30 floors, this building with its dark glass and light metal exterior is still impressive in size and design.

As impressive is the list of amenities and luxuries in this Tribeca apartment complex. Gracing the lobby with double height ceiling, 24 hour concierge staff and doormen, white marble floors, chocolate wood walls, marble concierge desk, and accent lighting make walking in to 200 Chambers Street a striking experience. The tranquil and beautifully illuminated courtyard waterfall garden is overlooked by many suites. The landscaped roof top terrace on the 8th floor atop the Chambers Street wing has spectacular views of the Hudson River, Washington Market Park, and the Manhattan Skyline.

The 50 foot sky lit indoor lap pool and state of the art 24 hour gym are located on the 7th floor and the children’s playroom and resident’s lounge on the 6th floor of the Warren Street wing.[1]

The building has approximately 14,000 square feet of retail space, and another 10,000-square feet of space that is leased to PS 234 which is one of the most popular and attractive public schools in New York City. It is next to the largest block long Whole Foods in New York City shares the block with PS234. 200 Chambers Street is a community within itself with wonderful neighbors and The Building Link system to keep residents informed of community events and services.[2]


Location

200 Chambers Street is located in the lower section of TriBeCa in Manhattan. Only blocks away from Ground Zero, the Financial District and next door to Battery Park City and the Hudson River, it is conveniently located on the east side of busy West Street. It is directly across from the Tribeca pedestrian bridge linking it to Battery Park City and the Hudson River Greenway.

TriBeCa is an acronym for “Triangle below Canal Street,” Tribeca was originally a residential neighborhood developed during colonial times, beginning in the late 18th century. By the mid-19th century the area transformed into a commercial center, with large numbers of store and loft buildings constructed along Broadway in the 1850s and 1860s. By the 1960s Tribeca's industrial base had all but vanished. The predominance of empty commercial space attracted many artists to the area in the 1970s. Since the 1980s, large scale conversion of the area has transformed Tribeca into an upscale residential area.

Today, high fashion pedestrians walk Tribeca’s streets, known for celebrity residents, and surrounded by upscale retailers and art galleries. Joggers run between former industrial neo-Renaissance buildings and sculpted, modern developments to reach the extensive Hudson River Greenway. Tribeca is favored for its large lofts, architecture and emphasis on the arts.[3]

200 Chambers Street is close to Rockefeller Park and Washington Market Park and within blocks are tennis courts, the Hudson River Greenway and Esplanade of Battery Park City. Being so close to the World Trade Center, this area was devastated in 2001 with the 9-11 attack and ensuing collapse of infrastructure, destruction and pollution. It was assaulted by Hurricane Sandy near the end of 2012. The area's residents show incredible resilience in overcoming these disasters.

It is rated a walk score of 100 out of 100 and literally within blocks is almost anything a resident may desire.

This TriBeCa area of New York City is in the NY Storm Zone A meaning that the likelihood of evacuation is high if a hurricane is to hit that area.[4]

Trivia

Battery City Park
  • Across the Street from 200 Chambers Street is Battery Park City, a 92-acre planned community at the southwestern tip of Lower Manhattan in New York City. The land upon which it stands was created by land reclamation on the Hudson River using over 3 million cubic yards of soil and rock excavated during the construction of the World Trade Center, the New york City Water Tunnel, and certain other construction projects, as well as from sand dredged from New York Harbor off Staten Island.
  • Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal had high profiles in the district's revival when they co-produced the dramatic television anthology series TriBeCa in 1993 and co founded the annual Tribeca Film Festival in 2002. The Tribeca Film Festival was established to help contribute to the long-term recovery of lower Manhattan after 9/11. The mission of the film festival is "to enable the international film community and the general public to experience the power of film by redefining the film festival experience."[6]
  • Included in the long list of high profile residents residing in TriBeCa are Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, David Letterman, and Kate Winslet.
  • This area was hard hit by the tragic September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and again more recently, by the brutal force of Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
