For some time now, luxury home buyers have been taking their searches Downtown. Luxury apartments, or “trophy” homes, are no longer solely centralized around ares like Central Park and the Upper East Side. Downtown has become, over the years, a new it location.
It’s been a while since we checked in at 111 Murray, the amenity-packed Tribeca skyscraper, and construction is moving right along. The Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed condo topped out in the spring, and according to developers Fisher Brothers and Witkoff, closings should begin in sometime in the next six months, with move-ins happening soon after.
In anticipation of that, the developers have released a few new renderings of a high-floor unit, the interiors of which were designed by David Mann.
When Witkoff, a Manhattan-based real estate investment and development firm, was ready to start selling pre-construction units in its 111 Murray Street project in Tribeca, they offered previous buyers from its West Village and Madison Square Park projects the chance to get in first.
We take a look at the apartments inside – some real, some virtual and CGI-generated – to see what’s on offer: from expansive open-plan living to marble-clad kitchens and bathrooms, pools and gyms, and not forgetting breathtaking views of Manhattan.The Telegraph (Online) 4.29.17

Architect and designer David Mann, founding partner of MR Architecture + Décor and author of a new monograph of the same name (April 17, $60, Abrams), counts 20th century artist and designer Donald Judd as one of his biggest influences. He channels Judd in his recent projects, such as the residences at 111 Murray St. “Judd was a pioneer downtown, being one of the early loft dwellers,” says Mann. “His work was not only functional but art.”
Now, the expectation is that new residential buildings will have all the services that you find in a hotel, and sometimes even more, said Lauren Witkoff, the executive vice president of Manhattan-based real estate and development firm, Witkoff. “I honestly don’t think that there are any stones that have been left unturned,” she said.Mansion Global 3.3.17
The skyscraper on the rise at 111 Murray Street in Tribeca is perhaps best known for the over the top amenities it will offer residents when it opens in 2018. Among them are concierge jet service, a hammam, and a private drybar. And it now seems like future residents won’t have to wait all that long to get their hands on those amenities as the condo is now more than halfway to the top, and is being fitted with its glass facade.Curbed NY 2.14.17
