Recalling Tribeca’s industrial past, this condominium building features unobstructed views of the Hudson River through floor-to-ceiling factory-sash windows.

Designed in collaboration with Aldo Andreoli, each of the 290 West Street’s 13 condominium units feature unobstructed views of the Hudson River through floor-to-ceiling factory sash windows. The openings are framed in metal channels that intersect to form “i-beam” profiles, evoking the character of Tribeca’s industrial past.

The lower volume is almost a perfect cube while the upper volume is setback to create private terraces for two duplex units. At the top of the building, a full-floor penthouse features a large projecting bay that gives the building a distinct presence on Manhattan’s West Side.

With the exception of its storefront, 290 West Street’s façade is composed of aluminum composite paneling that intersects to form “i-beam” profiles. The storefront was constructed using welded aluminum plates.

A freestanding Americh soaking tub carefully positioned beneath an east-facing window offers tranquil views across the Hudson.
