A world-class condo tower located in Tribeca and developed by a partnership between Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley, 111 Murray Street soars some 800 feet, offering 157 residences ranging from one-bedrooms to full-floor penthouses, most with cinematic views of the Manhattan skyline, Hudson River andthe New York Harbor.
111 Murray Street is a collaboration between some of the best and brightest minds in architecture and design, with architecture by Kohn Pedersen Fox, residence interiors by David Mann, amenities and public spaces by David Rockwell and landscape architecture by Edmund Hollander. With a gently curved crystalline facade, the building’s sculptural silhouette softly flares to a peaked crown at its pinnacle, creating a bold new shape on the city skyline.Occupying a privileged location in Tribeca, 111 Murray Street is surrounded by the best that Downtown has to offer. Curved glass elegantly wraps the 64 floors, meeting in an architectural reveal that gives strong definition to the rounded form. The crystalline façade is visually striking from both outside and inside the building, offering uninterrupted views of the city and its surrounding rivers in every direction.
CITY REALTY ARTICLE
This very impressive downtown tower is a very significant new landmark in Lower Manhattan because it is a couple of blocks to the north of the World Trade Center and thus very visible on the skyline from uptown. It is also one of the most graceful and beautiful new towers in the city in several decades even if it is not a “super-tall.”
This very elegant 58-story, glass residential tower at 111 Murray Street in TriBeCa between Greenwich Street and the West Side Highway is notable for its dramatically flared top, which is somewhat similar to that atop the residential tower planned by Ian Bruce Eichner under construction at 45 East 22nd Street and designed by the same architects, Kohn Pedersen Fox. The Eichner top, however, is angular and this top is curved.
This 792-foot-high tower was developed by Fisher Brothers, which erected Park Avenue Plaza just to the west of the Racquet and Tennis Club on Park Avenue, the Witkoff Group and Howard Lorber of New Valley, the chairman of Douglas Elliman. It is expected to be completed in 2018 and have 157 condominium apartments.
The tower’s reflective-glass façades are extremely smooth and are among the city’s most beautiful.
The tower’s main façades bulge very slightly that adds considerably to the tower’s gracefulness.
The entrance on West Street is a one-story, slightly curved pavilion with a slightly angled roof that rises toward the south and is next to a landscaped garden.
Kohn Pedersen Fox, which designed the curved glass, mid-rise residential structure One Abingdon Square in the West Village, also designed the very sleek, all-glass, curved office tower 333 Wacker Drive on the riverfront in Chicago as well as the stunning Shanghai Financial Center and the 108-story China Zun Tower in Beijing.
Goldstein, Hill & West Architects are the architects of record.
David Rockwell designed the lobby that has anodized steel walls, hand-blown glass lighting and travertine floors.
David Mann of MR Architecture & Décor was the interior designer.
Hollander Design Landscape Architects have designed the plaza.
The building has a very enviable site across from Battery Park City, a block north of 100 Barclay Street, the former telephone building designed by Ralph Walker, a block south of P.S. 234, the nautically-themed public school designed by Richard Dattner, and not far from Cesar Pelli’s great Wintergarden at the World Financial Center, David Smith’s fine One World Trade Center tower and observatory, and Santiago Calatrava’s flamboyant, winged transit terminal.
