Daniel Goldner’s award winning, Chelsea based architectural firm is set to design a new residential apartment building in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood, New York Yimby reported. It will be developed by Charles Dayan of Bonjour Capital, founder of Bonjour Jeans.
Dayan was born in Israel to a Syrian Jewish family that moved to America in 1967.
The new apartment building, at 59 Franklin Street, will have 89 units spread out over 18 stories, with a total of 89, 080 square feet.
This comes to an average of only 1, 000 square feet per unit, which will distinguish the building from most of Tribeca where huge living spaces in luxury apartments are the norm for new housing.
Public transportation is readily available.
Mr. Dayan paid $12.69 million for the site at a foreclosure auction held in 2012. The previous owner of the six story building that currently stands there, Marshall Weisman of W Developers, lost the property after he had defaulted on loans and was sued by his partners.
Approval for the demolition of that building was granted in May.
News of the filing of permits for the building was first reported in .
Established in 1980, Daniel Goldner Architect’s design achievements have been recognized by various awards including two New York American Institute of Architects Design Awards, Lumen Lighting awards and has had projects published in the New York Times, Metropolis Magazine and the Architectural Record among other publications.
Bonjour Capital is a privately held real estate investment and development firm founded in 1970 that owns and manages a diverse portfolio of real estate properties concentrated primarily in the New York Metropolitan Area.
