Tribeca, New York
70 Vestry St, New York, NY 10013, USA
A classic New York vibe in a classic New York neighborhood with classic New York waterfront views makes this intimate condominium development a coveted address. Designed by acclaimed New York architect Robert A.M. Stern on a waterfront parcel in Tribeca overlooking the Hudson River, the building nods to the area’s industrial past with its stone facade, decorative metalwork, and oversized casement windows. The handsome warehouse-like exterior is complemented by interiors by Daniel Romualdez, who used materials such as oak, bronze, and marble to create a traditional feel. An interior porte-cochere with an automated garage offers privacy for residents, who also have access to an impressive roster of amenities, including a stately library and billiards room and an entire wellness floor.

About 70 Vestry
As sleek, supertall towers rise up all over Manhattan, 70 Vestry is something of a throwback. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern, whose eponymous firm is known for its grand, prewar-style apartment houses, the 13-story condo development was inspired by Tribeca’s warehouse architecture. Metal-framed casement windows punctuate the handsome limestone facade, which steps back as it rises, creating terraces—and unimpeded views of the Hudson River—for many of the residences.
Known for cobblestone streets and waterfront views, Tribeca was once part of a parcel of land given by Queen Anne of England to Trinity Church. Today, the neighborhood, named for its location in the “Triangle Below Canal Street,” is quiet and inviting, with a restaurant scene that includes local institutions like The Odeon and Bubby’s, and ample outdoor space in the Hudson River Park and Washington Market Park. Off the beaten path, the petite Mmuseumm displays objects that tell the story of life today. Every summer, the Tribeca Film Festival draws filmmakers, actors, and artists to the neighborhood.
Daniel Romualdez brings the same attention to detail that he is known for among his private clients (Tory Burch, Daphne Guinness, Aerin Lauder, to name a few) to this elegant condominium development. From the oak-and-brass clad lobby to graceful, generously proportioned residences, his goal was to create a feeling of comfort. “The greatest luxury when you come home is to be taken care of, to feel cocooned,” Romualdez said. The 46 apartments, ranging from two to seven bedrooms and from 1,900 square feet to more than 7,000 square feet, have views of the Hudson, Tribeca, or the serene courtyard and are outfitted with Miele Combi-Steam ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerators, and, in most cases, two washers and dryers.
70 Vestry has the amenities of a much larger development, including a library, cafe, billiards room, lounge, and dining suite, children’s playroom, and pet spa, not to mention an entire wellness floor with a squash court, lap pool, sauna and steam rooms, yoga studio, and fitness center. The gated porte-cochere, cobblestone garden courtyard, and lobby with artwork by Alyson Shotz create a feeling of intimacy. The location, directly across from Hudson River Park, with views of the water and the Statue of Liberty, is yet another all-seasons perk.

Four Stunning Materials Trends of 2020
As they spend more time in their homes, homebuyers are more likely to focus on quality, seeking residences that prioritize craftsmanship. And some developers are sourcing specialty options for materials. Here are some of the most striking materials trends we’ve seen this year.
A restored Gilded Age icon occupying a block of prime Upper West Side real estate, The Astor offers the opportunity to inhabit a piece of New York history. Stepping inside is like stepping back into time—to when this stretch of Broadway was still relatively undeveloped, and everything felt taller, larger, and grander. Spaces existed, says design lead Aaron Dussair of Pembrooke & Ives, “that would be difficult to conceive of today.” When you combine these classic proportions and original details with, say, high-speed Wi-Fi and Miele appliances, you have something truly unique.
