Today's Featured Building: Tribeca Space
Tribeca Space, a condominium conversion project at 25 Murray Street, wraps around from the Murray Street side, along Church Street for the full block, and then to Warren Street on the far side.
Throughout its history, this building, which is actually four buildings in one, was occupied by several different businesses at once. The developers combined the space into one large development and put a nice new six story topper on it, albeit, the wrong color.
The addition tips its hat to the style of architecture that the original part displayed, but didn't quite get it. The pale and bland colored topper tries to emulate the decorative protruding block formations that scale the facade periodically and the quoins along the corners of the old building, reasonably successfully.
Still, by re-purposing the old structure and maintaining the original facade, the building is not out of place in the neighborhood. Now it contains 74 new and spacious condominium units near downtown Manhattan close to City Hall.
Tribeca Space, as the name suggests is located in the neighborhood of Tribeca, an acronym for the Triangle Below Canal Street.
The park at the City Hall of New York City looms large on the next block to the east. Schools of every description are located throughout the immediate area covering all age groups. The 60 story Woolworth Building is a block and half away, the world's tallest building in 1913. 40 Wall Street and the Chrysler Building over took it in 1930. It's been a New York City landmark since 1983.
Residents of Tribeca Space don't need to venture very far for their "designer coffees" or a meal. Restaurants, grocery dtores and bars are densely situated throughout the neighborhood.
St. John's University and Battery Park City are a short stroll away and the memorial for the World Trade Center Towers is six blocks from the building.
