Tribeca’s Waterfront Condo at 450 Washington Launches Sales from $1 Million

Sales have launched at 450 Washington, the revamped full-block building in Tribeca, originally designed by Roger Ferris + Partners on the Hudson River waterfront. The building’s 176 residences range from open-plan studios to four-bedroom homes, priced from approximately $1 million to $12 million. All homes are complete with seven-inch-wide European white oak flooring, kitchens with Miele appliances and custom cabinetry, washer/dryer machines, and bathrooms with marble finishes. 

“Our design strategy was to expand all the views in an effort to open up vistas, in all directions, towards this incredible waterfront amenity,” said Roger Ferris, Founding Principal of Roger Ferris + Partners.

450 Washington features a comprehensive suite of interior and exterior amenities, elegantly furnished by March & White Design. A landscaped roof terrace on the 12th floor provides panoramic views of the Hudson River and features a sundeck, lounge seating, grilling areas, a residents’ lounge with a fireplace, and a private dining room with an adjacent catering pantry and seating for 14. The fitness suite includes equipment by The Wright Fit and a golf simulator lounge with multisport capabilities. The building also features a business center, children’s playroom, and on-site parking (for an additional fee).

In Palm Beach, Two Luxury Condominium Towers Are Set to Replace Dated Waterfront Development

After acquiring the Regency condominiums at 250 Beach Road in Palm Beach County’s Tequesta Village for nearly $100 million, Miami-based developers Jeffrey Soffer and Perko Development have unveiled plans to replace the waterfront community with a pair of modern condominium towers.

Soffer and Perko Development are also partners in the SeaGlass and Savoy Residences, just north of the Regency site.
