The Fairchild Tribeca
The Fairchild development in New York's North Tribeca neighborhood has a bit of a celebrity appeal. James Gandolfini is said to be an investor in the project and owns a unit in the project which is a collection of 21 townhomes, penthouses and lofts, many with 22-foot ceilings, private balconies and terraces. Last year, the NY Post reported that Jessica Alba checked out a few penthouses in the building and Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima also did a bit of browsing. As Curbed reported last month the Fairchild recently went over the 50 percent sold mark.
The project was newly constructed by Karl Fischer Architecture but designed to fit into the neighborhood with a traditional red brick façade and oversized arched windows . The interior of each home boasts plenty of natural light and walnut stained flooring along with fixtures and finishes handpicked by interior designer David Howell. The custom-designed Poggenpohl gourmet kitchen has a CeaserStone countertop and backsplash, Sub-Zero refrigerator, built-in Wolf cooktop and oven, Miele dishwasher, and stainless steel Sub-Zero wine cooler. Bathrooms include large travertine tiles, Calcatta gold marble countertops, walnut stained vanities, and herringbone detailed floors.
Amenities include a 24-hour attended lobby with full concierge services, refrigerated grocery storage, private outdoor space, and direct elevator access to each home. Residents also can also enjoy the Shibui Spa at The Greenwich Hotel, which includes a lantern-lit swimming pool and lounge under the roof of a 250-year-old wood and bamboo farmhouse. The hotel's fitness center includes state-of-the-art equipment and trainers available upon request. A unit currently listed at $3.995 million includes an indoor basketball court, three bedrooms and an outdoor terrace with 648 square feet of space.
