Royale moment for Leyva
Ismael Leyva Architects has designed a major New York City downtown apartment building dubbed the Tribeca Royale Condominium.
As both design architect and interior designer for the project, Ismael Leyva Architects was selected by the developer, ABN Realty LLC, to create “an architecturally significant and 21st century work of art.ˮ
Located steps away from the World Trade Center at 19 Park Place in TriBeCa, Tribeca Royale Condominium will rise 21 stories to 292 ft. and will include 24 residences, including 11 full floor units on the upper floors, and duplexes on the seventh-eighth floors as well as a penthouse residence.
“Our goal with Tribeca Royale was to create a state-of-the-art residential building that showcases unique urban design given the site constraints, while efficiently maximizing space,” said Ismael Leyva, president of Ismael Leyva Architects.
“This design offers unique residences in a very desirable downtown location.”
Spanning 53,000 s/f, the Tribeca Royale will feature amenities such as a gym, residential lounge with a public terrace and an additional two terraces on the roof for designated units.
Each residence includes a circular balcony with glass railing while the penthouse and 11th floor residences feature terraces with glass railings. The through lot allows residences to have frontage on both east and west facades.
Work at the site is underway and the building is slated for completion in 2014. Halstead is the exclusive agent.
