101 Warren Street that located in New York, United States, was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP. Combining 220 luxury residences and 163 market-rate, middle-income, and low-income rental units, the tower is an innovative way to both address market conditions and to provide the city with much needed affordable housing. Each residential type is architecturally separated, with luxury condos located in a 33-storey tower for best views of the city and the Hudson to the west.
101 Warren Street is wrapped in a continuous veil of Jura stone to express a sense of mass and opacity while allowing for spectacular views through floor to ceiling glass. An architectural language of stone was informed by surrounding industrial, six story masonry structures: the condominium tower is clad in a lacework of vertical stone piers, the rental buildings on top of the podium are knit together with a stone wrapper, and the retail base is heavily clad in stone with few vertical windows that show the public space and cafes within.
