It takes a lot to stand out in Tribeca, which is, block for block, one of the most architecturally diverse and aesthetically fascinating places to live in all of New York City. And yet 77 Reade Street, a new loft-style condominium at (yes) 77 Reade Street, does just that. With a landmark warehouse structure that dates back to 1852 at its base and a graceful limestone structure – courtesy of renowned architects BKSK – rising above it, 77 Reade Street blends classic Tribeca aesthetics with contemporary condominium comforts both outside and in, thanks both to the classic loft-style condos for sale and the notably up-to-date amenities that compliment them. Add it all up, and 77 Reade Street stands out not only as one of the finest new condo listings in Tribeca, but as one of the most promising new condominiums in lower Manhattan.
The apartments for sale at 77 Reade Street strike the same balance as the graceful exterior, balancing such classic Tribeca loft attributes as soaring ceilings and generously proportioned open floor plans with a host of very contemporary Manhattan condo comforts. Apartments at 77 Reade Street offer the sort of elite fixtures and finishes Manhattanites expect from a luxury condominium in Tribeca – bathrooms feature large soaking tubs and Asian granite; the gourmet kitchens feature Miele appliances, custom Italian cabinetry, glass countertops and either a central kitchen island or breakfast bar. But while the fixtures and finishes are all eminently up-to-date and top-of-the-line, the feel in 77 Reade Street apartments is that of a classic Tribeca loft – 10-to-14 foot ceilings add an airy feel, oversized seven-foot windows bathe each apartment in natural light, and hardwood ash flooring. Penthouses at 77 Reade are equally impressive, offering panoramic Manhattan skyline views through floor-to-ceiling windows, working fireplaces and private terraces.
Traditional Tribeca lofts offer limited amenities – they are, after all, in converted industrial spaces. But 77 Reade is not a traditional Tribeca loft, and its amenities are impressive even by the high standards of new construction Manhattan luxury condos. The amenities at 77 Reade include a 24-hour attended lobby, state-of-the-art fitness center and a lushly landscaped rooftop terrace that offers stunning views of downtown Manhattan. 77 Reade's prime Tribeca location is an amenity in itself, of course – a short walk from a half-dozen parks and the Hudson River, steps from the myriad retail, nightlife and culinary delights of Tribeca and a short walk from the subway, 77 Reade sits at the center of everything that makes Tribeca Tribeca. Which is yet another reason that, even by the high standards for Tribeca condos, 77 Reade stands out.
