Battery Park City
New York, New York
Tribeca Green is located at the northern end of Battery Park City in Manhattan, just one block south of our firm's Tribeca Park, completed in 1999. The 350,000-square-foot Tribeca Green contains 264 rental apartments and 55 parking spaces. The LEED™-certified Gold building is a model of sustainable architecture in keeping with the Battery Park City Authority's aggressive program of sustainable design; the most visible green features are the mechanical penthouse clad in photovoltaic panels and the green roof on the fifteenth floor, but many other less visible strategies are also employed, including an Energy Star roof on the tower, high-performance skin, and graywater recycling.
A 24-story tower at the intersection of North End Avenue and Warren Street, the building has metal cornice and brick detailing recalling neighboring Tribeca’s historic building fabric. Building massing follows guidelines established by the Battery Park City Authority's master plan that controls future development in the North Residential Neighborhood from the World Financial Center towers up to Stuyvesant High School, helping to create a waterfront street wall overlooking Nelson Rockefeller Park along the Hudson River reminiscent of Riverside Drive on New York’s Upper West Side. A variety of building heights – each responding to the scale of adjoining streets and future neighbors – break down the apparent mass of this large development.
