A New Building Proposed for White Street in Tribeca
The Landmarks Preservation Commission, in 2015, approved a residential building for two triangular adjacent lots, from Franklin to White streets. Now a seven-story, 10-apartment structure is proposed for a third such site, on the north side of White Street, at 6th Avenue. On Tuesday, the LPC gave a glowing approval of the bronze-and-glass-faced structure. “A plus, this is a great project,” said Commissioner Frederick Bland. “One of the best I've seen on first hearing ever in eight years sitting around this table.”

The building's facade will be clad in brass tiles(thankfully it is not the very white look that was previously revealed), and the interiors look like the usual: open layouts with large kitchens, marble counters, marble bathrooms, and light hardwood floors.
