SOM’s 91 Leonard Street Reaches Completion in Tribeca

91 Leonard Street, a sleek, charcoal-colored terracotta condominium with exterior and lobby designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, brings a modern twist to a mostly 19th-century block in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood. The project has now reached completion and residents have begun to move in. With 111 luxury condominiums plus amenity spaces, the 178,000-square-foot building was developed by Toll Brothers City Living, with collaborating architect Hill West Architects and interiors by Whitehall Interiors. While the building is more than 85% sold, spacious residences are still available for purchase, and can be occupied immediately.

At 210 feet tall, the building is in line with the scale of the neighborhood, and the design is inspired by the cast-iron facades and hand-crafted materials that characterize Tribeca’s architectural heritage. The facade is an assemblage of terracotta baguettes that are accented and framed by an overlay of gridded terracotta extrusions. Large windows open onto Juliet balconies framed by warm bronze trims, a material that simultaneously echoes the history of Tribeca while evoking the modern structures of Lower Manhattan.

The double-height lobby acts as a gated mews, a quiet, light-filled respite from the bustling streets, with views of a private garden courtyard and reflecting pool. Blackened steel-framed windows and accents of bronze trim aesthetically connect with the building’s exterior, and a series of large, custom industrial light fixtures frame the double-height space. Exposed, rusticated brick and structural concrete columns and beams establish a refined industrial feel. The lobby is accessed from a discreet entrance on Leonard Street, and an array of public retail spaces are located on the more animated Broadway side of the building.

The residences, designed by Hill West and Whitehall Interiors, evoke Tribeca’s industrial past, with high ceilings, custom thin planked whitewashed oak floors, a nod to the 1900s factories of Tribeca, and expansive windows that welcome natural light. Adding richness to the simple surroundings, Whitehall incorporated unexpected finishes to the design, like blackened steel back splashes that complement the grey washed cabinets in the kitchen, custom brass and steel fixtures and bardiglio marble in the bathrooms, and beautiful onyx slabs in the powder rooms that are reminiscent of the building’s color palette of muted greys, blues, and warm metals.
