For $2.8M, a sustainable Tribeca loft with wall tiles made of recycled car parts
Even at first glance this architect-designed loft in Tribeca’s City Hall Tower at 258 Broadway seems to have all the best elements of downtown loft living: Beneath 14-foot ceilings, walls of windows wrap the space for views of City Hall Park and the neighborhood below, and a mezzanine level offers more sleeping and living room. But this $2.8 million co-op’s secret superpower is sustainability, from walls of recycled post-industrial denim insulation and sound isolation to 100 percent VOC-free YOLO paint.
On the home’s main level, the living space is divided into three distinct areas including a formal dining and sitting area and a cozy den clad in reclaimed American chestnut.
The open kitchen features an Ice Stone (100 percent recycled glass) countertop and energy-efficient appliances from Sub-Zer, Wolf and GE. Water is triple-filtered.
Just behind the den, a guest bedroom offers park views. An office/sitting area is tucked just above this room.
Upstairs on the loft level is the spacious master sleeping area with a walk-in closet. An en-suite bath features wall tiles made from recycled aluminum car parts from Mexico, with natural limestone flooring. A modern home office with PaperStone work surfaces and FSC-certified plywood substrate shelving offers views out over the loft and the park. Luxury isn’t forgotten: Throughout are refinished original wood floors and ironwork railings, plus an additional full bathroom, an oversized walk-in closet and a washer and dryer.
258 Broadway was built in 1897 and now contains 44 residences. The building offers a live-in super, private locked storage, bike room, a card operated laundry room and video security.
