DDG’s new condo development at 12 Warren is now readying for opening. Developed, designed, built, and managed by DDG, the 12-story building features a façade of roughly-hewn bluestone quarried in the Catskills, utilized to evoke the rich, natural feel of traditional Tribeca loft buildings. This is not the first of such projects for DDG, which is led by Joseph A. McMillan, Jr. The firm seems to have made it almost a mission to bring bluestone into the brownstone-heavy New York, and it was also used on their 41 Bond development in NoHo.
Of the building’s 13 apartments, six remain for sale: a 2-bedroom unit for $3.3 million, four 3-bedroom units starting from $5 million, and one 4-bedroom unit at $6.9 million. Residences range from simplexes to triplexes, all of which maximize sustainable elements in anticipation of LEED certification.
The building’s facade is striking, and its design elements continue inside the building. The lobby is clad in bluestone and features a photograph of the stone quarry where the material originated.
The residences also feature exposed interior concrete elements, bluestone vanities, and bluestone finishes to continue the theme. Kitchens include white oak cabinetry, marble countertops, and Gaggenau appliances, and baths are outfitted in Carrara marble. A majority of residences include a private elevator entry and private exterior space. All are complete with 7-foot tall windows, 7.5-inch white oak flooring, zoned climate control, and fully vented laundry rooms. Amenities in the building include a 24-hour doorman and concierge, a fitness center, a landscaped roof deck, and private and bicycle storage available for purchase.
There are currently 138 condos for sale in the Tribeca for a median price of $5,995,000, or $2,904 per square foot. The average closing price for a condo in the area in September was $2,333 per square foot, significantly higher than last September’s average closing price of $1,904 per square foot.
