Sales going swimmingly at Tribeca building
Less than four months after launching sales, HFZ Capital Group is announcing the 11 Beach building is 50 percent sold. Also, 11 Beach will list Penthouse B, the largest of the building’s two penthouses, for $22,500,000.

Penthouse B is being listed soon for $22,500,000.

The 27 unit 11 Beach building is now 50 percent sold. The residences in contract range in price from $5,200,000 to $10,000,000.
Much of 11 Beach’s sales success is attributed to the building’s prime Tribeca location, the gracious layouts and elegant finishes all with a level of bespoke craftsmanship created for a Tribeca lifestyle, as well as the building’s interior design by Thomas Juul-Hansen and architecture by BKSK Architects.
Among the residences in contract is one of the building’s three triplex townhouses, which is listed for over $10,000,000. It is a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom 4,827 square foot home with a private entrance, dedicated elevator, multiple entertainment spaces and a private spa with a 50-foot stainless steel pool with a glass wall, steam room, sauna and rainforest shower.
Named after its address, 11 Beach Street, the L-shaped building is in Tribeca and has frontage on three sides. Built in 1910 the 10-story, loft building will be converted into 27 homes. The residences range from 3 to 5 bedrooms and include lofts, penthouses and townhouses.
Amenities include a landscaped roof garden, state-of-the-art fitness center, children’s playroom, 24-hour doorman and storage rooms available for purchase.
Thomas Juul-Hansen has designed the building’s interiors and he is widely known for his private residences and interiors work on One57, One York and several restaurants for chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Acclaimed New York-based firm BKSK Architects will re-envision the façade and oversee the building’s renovation with a rusticated brick base and beautifully preserved brickwork, including nods to history by incorporating classic terra cotta reinterpreted in a modern design.
HFZ selected the firm for its experience restoring a number of landmark Tribeca buildings into beautiful residences, often adding harmonious design elements and emphasizing iconic features. Closings are expected to begin late 2016.

Units up for rent in W’burg
By April 2014, following a year-long leasing program, the 351-unit luxury rental complex at 101 Bedford Avenue, between North 11th and 12th Streets, was 100 percent leased. But now as the earliest leases begin to expire, some of the spacious studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments may soon be available again.
In less than 24 months since it was first presented to the market, the much touted amenity-laden, four-building complex has become a mini-community, complete with a popular children’s playroom, indoor swimming pool with hot tub and spa, 2,500-square-foot fitness center, club room, wine room and business center.
Last summer, when the 17,000-square-foot roof deck was first opened with such features as a mini beach, cabana seating and multiple barbeque grills, it became an instant residents’ destination, as did the serene interior garden on the second level, with its massive center gazebo. The golf simulator that was completed in spring 2014 also became a social hub for the building.
“It has been less than a couple years since we officially opened, but the way the building has developed has surpassed all our initial expectations,” says co-developer Yoel Sabel. “It’s like a little neighborhood where some people will live for years and others will move on. So now the time is right to gear up for additional apartment opportunities in the next few months.”
In addition to the entertainment programs and extraordinary amenities, 101 BEDFORD offers 24/7 front desk service, on-site parking, canine cleaning station, available for dog-walking and pet-sitting services, on-site ATMs and vending machines, cold storage room for “Fresh Direct” and other refrigerated deliveries, and even a package inventory app.
Among the building’s other attractions is its tranquil location directly across from McCarren Park and proximity to the L train, just four blocks away.
All of the generously-sized apartments feature hardwood floors, open kitchens with stainless steel appliances and Cesarstone countertops, porcelain-clad bathrooms and oversized windows that either offer views of McCarren Park, the Manhattan skyline, or the beautifully landscaped inner courtyard.
