The Knightsbridge Park team’s most recent visit to the newly constructed 100 Franklin began on Tribeca’s famed cobblestone streets. To walk up Franklin Street is to traverse more than a century of architectural history in every block – each a slice of the diversity and legacy that make the neighborhood one of the most desirable places in Manhattan.
At the corner of Franklin and Church sits DDG Partners’ latest feat – 100 Franklin, which is right at home in any era of Tribeca architecture. Its hand-laid red brick exterior, which incorporates both traditional and modern masonry details, is a stunning combination of old and new. Constructed with handmade bricks from Petersen Tegl, the façade helps tie 100 Franklin to Tribeca’s rich architectural past without losing its modern identity – in other words, yet another masterpiece by DDG Partners.
“We’ve been fortunate to collaborate with DDG Partners on many of their developments – 12 Warren, XOCO 325, 180 East 88th, 3550 South Ocean, 450 Hayes – and 100 Franklin exemplifies everything we’ve come to expect from them. It’s bold, it’s refined, it’s iconoclastic without being irreverent – and in many ways, it’s raised the bar for boutique Downtown condominiums,” says Arthur Greenberg, Vice President.
The building’s dual-triangular footprint produces the same optic trick as the famous Flatiron Building, where it appears either quite wide or narrow depending on the angle of approach. The shape is repeated inversely within the light-filled residences, where living rooms terminate in a point that provides unique interior decorating opportunities. The model residence was sumptuously staged by The Future Perfect, who brought each space to life with standout pieces and arrangements – including a stunning dining table, accompanied by a bar cart nestled at the living room’s tip.
“The first thing you notice when walking into the residences at 100 Franklin is the size of the horizontally shaped windows,” says Colin Athens, our Senior Account Manager. “It’s quite amazing how much you’re able to take in and observe, from the architectural detailing of surrounding buildings to the intimate views of the iconic Tribeca streets.”
“My favorite part of our most recent visit to 100 Franklin was the penthouse residences’ expansive terraces, which highlight the greatest pieces of the surrounding Tribeca neighborhood and beyond,” says Zack Weinstock, our Associate Account Executive. “As we explored every corner of these terraces, new vantage points emerged, revealing the famous NYC-style fire escapes, rooftop water towers, the Roxy Hotel, and plenty more.”
The Knightsbridge Park team left 100 Franklin with a sense that the building is carrying the best of Tribeca’s architectural legacy into the future while integrating modern luxury and convenience.
