By Anuradha Kher, Online News EditorNew York–Sales have started for The Fairchild (pictured), a new project featuring 21 custom built town homes, penthouses and lofts designed by David Howell, and located at Manhattan’s TriBeCa North Historic District at 55 Vestry St. The nine-story doorman building features two-, three- and four-bedroom residences with 22-ft. high ceilings. Prices for the units range from $1.965 million to $8.995 million, with floor plans including up to three baths and spanning from 1,350 to 2,835 sq. ft. It also includes three oversized triplex town homes with private street-level entrances. Select residences also feature spacious terraces and outdoor patio space.“The Fairchild combines the great style of a classic New York building with one of the City’s most fashionable neighborhoods,” says Gerard Longo, a principal of Atlantic Walk Vestry, developer of The Fairchild. “Each home is a true New York original, and the neighborhood itself offers a dynamic array of shopping, entertainment, and dining unique only to TriBeCa.” While the architectural design of The Fairchild reflects the industrial age of the 19th century, authenticated by a traditional red brick façade and oversized arched windows, The Fairchild is a newly constructed building and will feature comforts of 21st-century living. Located on a landmark site, which was formerly occupied by Fairchild Foster, a pharmaceutical company in business at the beginning of the 19th century, The Fairchild is being built under the supervision of the Landmarks Preservation Commission to ensure the historic character of the neighborhood is respected and preserved. “We’ve stayed true to the history of the neighborhood while providing modern luxury and function,” says Longo. The Poggenpohl Kitchens are fully equipped, providing residents with dark stained wood and off-white lacquered cabinetry, polished Caesarstone countertops and backsplashes, 36” Sub-Zero refrigerators plus additional under-counter refrigerators, a built-in Wolf oven and cook top, a Miele integrated dishwasher, and a stainless steel Sub-Zero wine cooler.Other amenities include a 24-hour doorman and personal concierge, as well as dedicated storage space, and a refrigerated storage area.
