Springtime has seen the Tribeca boom continue to expand, and 290 West Street — which had seemingly been stalled — is finally reaching skywards. VE Equities is the developer, and Adjmi & Andreoli led the project’s design, which has apparently seen changes since its last reveal, via The Post.

290 West Street

290 West Street will measure 36,927 square feet, which will be split between nine floors and thirteen condominiums. With residences averaging over 2,500 square feet apiece, the product will be similar to VE and Adjmi & Andreoli’s other recent collaboration at 11 North Moore, just a few blocks to the southeast.

The building will present another contemporary-classic addition to Tribeca, mixing both modern and historic features. 290 West Street has been downsized since the design was first unveiled, losing two floors from its top; the re-configured structure also has a protruding window from its penthouse, a contrast to indentations featured in the previous iteration.

Still, the facade will have Adjmi’s trademark casement windows, and it also looks to integrate rooftop terraces for future residents. While the old scale of 290 West Street was also appropriate — and its intricacies more subtle — the new design will still present an opportunity for contextual growth. As the northernmost lot in Tribeca, its redevelopment speaks to the scale of the neighborhood’s renaissance, and how every corner is now being revitalized.

Adjmi is one of the most consistently high-quality architects working today. His work is highly contextual, influenced by the history and aesthetics of each neighborhood he builds in, yet he admirably avoids the outright historicism of Stern.

Yes. This is the perfect example where ‘modern ARCHITECTURE’ is the optimal solution for our built environment; here form, function and simply beauty are are all optimized in a single structure.

The classics are not doubt beautiful, but the strict rules of classical form involving symmetry, decoration, scale, ratio, window size, all inhibit the much needed ‘shape-shifting’ functional requirements of our age.

Here we see full-hight oversized windows, asymmetric set-backs, steel beams forming both decoration and structural support on the facade: not to mention ‘originality’.

Modern Architecture rules, and Adjmi is quite adept at this particular design genre.

Where there is good/better/best design: this is ‘best’ - a work of art that can actually be inhabited. :wink:
