Stirring the city image, buildings and the environment are indistinguishably linked. Modern architects and designers utilize their creativity to construct timeless designs that seamlessly blend in with a building’s respective neighborhoods – rather than erecting projects that do not fit within its existing surroundings. The architectural design of the luxury condominiums below is in line with NYC neighborhoods. These masterpieces feature recognizable limestone facades inspired by the Upper West Side and boast Dumbo’s prominent brick and concrete combo.
The much-anticipated Upper West Side luxury condominium building 96+Broadway is developed by private real estate development and investment firm, JVP Management. The 23-story building is designed by NYC-based Danish designer Thomas Juul-Hansen. Drawing inspiration from the grandeur of the Upper West Side’s most prominent buildings, its double-height entry is framed in bronze and limestone and protected by an elegant setback. In a modern expression of classical architecture, Thomas Juul-Hansen has designed 96+Broadway’s façade with expansive windows encased in bronze trim and silver-grey limestone. The double-height lobby combines the iconic materials and exquisite proportions of historic Upper West Side architecture.
Front & York
Designed inside and out by celebrated architect Morris Adjmi, Front & York pays homage to the DUMBO neighborhood, with elements inspired by the surrounding warehouse architecture, Belgian block streets and iconic spandrels of the nearby Manhattan Bridge. Its highly detailed, hand-laid brick façade is made of 1.2 million custom-made Glen-Gery bricks in a distinct color that reflects the hue of the surrounding streets. The façade of the two 21-story residential towers is topped with a scalloped, custom-molded concrete superframe crafted in New York’s Hudson Valley, and their base features signature arches inspired by the nearby Manhattan Bridge.
