Finally! Renderings of the New Building at 12 Warren

12 Warren courtesy DDGI’ve been pestering DDG forever about a rendering for 12-14 Warren, the condominium the company is constructing between Broadway and Church. All we knew, courtesy of a schematic posted on the construction fence, is that it would have protuberances. A Curbed article about a DDG project in Soho reminded me that I should check in on the firm’s website, and voilà!

The accompanying text is below. Note that it’s just going by 12 Warren now. It appears to be 12 stories, with rather a lot of bulkhead—but since I had understood it to be a full 15 stories, that’s an improvement.

With 12 Warren, DDG returns to Tribeca’s Warren Street. [DDG did 24-26 Warren, too.] The wide building lot allows for spacious residences, consisting of triplex, duplex and full-floor homes. Most residences will feature private exterior spaces. The combined ground-up and complete renovation will result in a state-of-the-art building that also reflects the rich architectural tradition of Tribeca loft buildings. Bluestone will be the prominent façade material.

If only the building looked like the image in the lower right!

  1. I’d heard that the vault spaces are actually city property (as they are under the sidewalk and thus at least partially beyond the building’s property line). Anyone know if that’s true or not?
