Located in the heart of TriBeCa, 60 White Street by Bostudio Architecture boasts eight residential lofts that fuse high-end design with sustainability and energy efficiency.
With careful selection of materials and inspired interior design, all the charm, character and history of a landmark edifice are preserved and celebrated, while creating the perfect modern loft experience.
Approximately 80 percent of the project’s materials were reused or maintained from the existing structure. The rest of the finishes were sourced locally, helping to breathe new life into the wondrous souls of these stunning buildings.
Some of these locally sourced materials include Vermont Danby Marble from Vermont Quarries – home to the world’s largest underground quarry – and 300-year-old reclaimed oak from The Hudson Company.
The marble embodies the outstanding performance and durability of the project, while the reclaimed wood speaks to the natural and historic quality. Another striking component of the project is the Biophilia and the use of nature to improve the building’s living conditions.
A planted living green wall sits in the lobby, which offers aesthetic charm while contributing to a healthy and natural ventilation system. These materials help execute the vision of excellence, sustainability, and historic preservation – choosing to honour the past while building for the future.
The building boasts large and gracious rooms with ample lighting making for a modern and luxurious space.
Residents enjoy discreet keyed-elevator entry, individualized virtual security systems, an on-site fitness centre and storage, private residential lounge with green landscape features and a planted eco-wall in the entrance gallery.
