In a city rich with desirable neighborhoods, Tribeca continues to distinguish itself as one of the best, attracting an eclectic mix of the most discerning New Yorkers. Its distinctive cobblestone streets are home to some of the city’s finest restaurants and bars while a leisurely stroll will uncover exquisite art galleries, top-notch services and independent retailers.
Tribeca is whatever its residents needs it to be: a glamorous location for exciting nights out with friends; a family-friendly setting for ball games in the park; or a place of quiet repose to be savored with a cup of coffee and a good book. By the river, in a booth at the local grill, or simply strolling the sidestreets, this is the classic New York experience.
The Tribeca portion of Hudson River Park offers some of the most unique activities and opportunities for recreation on the West Side. Visitors can enjoy kayaking, beach volleyball, sailing, or a drink at sunset from the Grand Banks sailboat. The upland area just north of Pier 26 features a dog run, habitat planting zones, lawns, seating areas and overlooks.
The face of 70 Vestry becomes altogether more intimate upon arrival at the building’s elegant private courtyard. The double-height lobby is finished with flat cut oak paneling and Fior Di Bosco marble flooring, and is home to hand-crafted furniture and specially-commissioned artwork inspired by Tribeca’s artistic heritage.
By day, the building’s cool textures seem to sparkle in the sun. As the day ends and the rays spread low across the Hudson, its walls radiate a gentle, almost painterly glow. It is not difficult, therefore, to see why Robert A.M. Stern Architects has chosen limestone to be the signature element of 70 Vestry.
Yet this decision has not been an aesthetic choice alone. For generations, the inherent beauty of limestone has graced the New York skyline, adding its lightness and elegance to the city’s high rises and cluttered blocks. Finding the perfect material was a critical step in the evolution of the design.
Limestone works more beautifully in the sunshine than any other material. With the western and southern light here, the building will glow. — Robert A. M. Stern
The Beaumaniere limestone selected for the façade comes from a quarry on the banks of the Seine, 250 km south of Paris. This naturally-honeyed aristocratic stone has been quarried in the French countryside for hundreds of years and delivers the beauty, quality and consistency that 70 Vestry required.
The stunning spa suite is a lavish retreat lined with split-face marble, brushed limestone and Taj Mahal quartzite. An 82-foot swimming pool, separate children’s pool, and hot and cold plunge pools provide residents with a variety of aquatic activities.
At the heart of the ground floor amenities is the lounge. Perfect for both formal dinner parties and relaxed family gatherings, it has been furnished with 70 Vestry’s signature pairing of classic and contemporary pieces.
Finally, you can rest assure that from early morning sunrise to dusk and beyond, the views overlooking the Hudson at 70 Vestry are a spectacular and ever-changing landscape of life, light, and color.
