Shaved truffles in Tribeca
REAL ESTATE • FOUND Development
The building formerly known as Truffles Tribeca used to be an obsession of ours when it was built in 2009. It worked for a certain breed of downtown renters for a moment, until it didn’t and Related ripped it up and converted to sales. In the process, they reduced the number of units from about 300 to 176, put in floor-through windows to maximize views, installed updated finishes and amenities, and stripped the name down to the studs.
The new product, 450 Washington, is a full block of 2023, at home on a stretch of the west side where neighbors include 70 Vestry (another Related project, by Robert A.M. Stern). The views are indeed spectacular, and may be accessed via Unit 909, currently listed for $4.955M (4BR/3.5BA, 1884SF) and Unit 605, which at $7.995M is the priciest apartment currently for sale and comes with a 1100 SF terrace. Per Marketproof, the building is 50% sold.
