Paul Pierce New Brooklyn Nets Rents $35K Apartment in Tribeca

 

Brooklyn Nets All-Star Paul Pierce and his wife, Julie, have just moved into a full-floor loft apartment in TriBeCa’s 90 Franklin St., the same building where Mariah Carey owns the penthouse. Pierce’s 5,000-square-foot, four-bedroom home, with 28 windows, was asking $35,000 a month and includes a woodburning fireplace.

Known as Franklin Tower, the 1915 building once served as the Corn Exchange Bank in 1930. The 18-story condo features a roof deck, gym and bike storage.

Pierce isn’t the only Nets player to snub Brooklyn: Fellow All-Star Joe Johnson also moved into a rental in the same ’hood last year.

TriBeCa Loft Tour Offers Glimpse of Fancy Home

 

Preview of Tribeca Loft TourTRIBECA — New Yorkers can get a glimpse at how some of their wealthiest neighbors live on a tour of TriBeCa’s fanciest lofts next month.

The 14th Annual Inside Tribeca Loft Tour on Oct. 20 will feature 10 to 12 never-before-seen homes, including one with an indoor basketball court and another constructed from recycled materials such as old subway cars.

“This tour gives us a sneak peek of how these individuals live and decorate their homes,” said Jennifer McAllister-Nevins, a board member of Friends of Duane Park. “This is a real treat to view these never-before-seen homes.”

The $60 advance tickets for the tour will benefit the Friends of Duane Park and the money will go to the maintenance of the park and nearby Bogardus Garden and Plaza.

The Inside Tribeca Loft Tour will be held from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 20. Advance tickets cost $60 and day-of tickets cost $65. The tour, which has only 400 tickets, is expected to sell out.

City Suspends Adding Tribeca Bike Lanes

  The city Department of Transportation’s proposal to put bike paths on West Broadway, Varick Street and Church Street in Tribeca was shot down last night in a Community Board 1 vote, prompting the agency to scrap its plan for the time being.

DOT spokesman Nicholas Mosquera confirmed to the Trib via e-mail Thursday afternoon that plans to add the lanes this month are now on hold. Acknowledging the 11-11 vote, with 14 abstentions, he said the agency “looks forward to discussing next steps with the board in September.”

The vote marked the board’s unwillingness to go along with a plan that would give cyclists an uninterrupted bike route between Warren Street and Union Square. The vote contradicted the majority opinion of the board’s Tribeca Committee, which approved the plan in a 6-2 vote last month.

“I assume that everyone who abstained knows that they’re voting ‘no’ and just not actually admitting it,” CB1’s Tribeca Committee chair Michael Connolly told the full board.

During his presentation at the July committee meeting, the DOT’s bicycle director Hayes Lord said that the agency would not implement the plan without the board’s approval. That plan included two types of bike lanes: a five-foot-wide, “buffered” path sandwiched between traffic and parking lanes and separated by three-foot wide painted street markings, and an “enhanced” lane shared with car lanes and designated as such with painted bike symbols.

101 Warren Street Duplex With Epic Terrace Asks $35 Million

Whoever the mystery individual is behind Weeumo LLC—the buyer, for $22,401,500 in 2008, of apartment #3420 at 101 Warren Street—he or she has thrown it all into the unit. Celeb designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz is responsible for the look of the place, which includes a 60-foot-wide living room on the lower level, a mudroom and pantry, and a 2,400-square-foot irrigated and landscaped wrap-around terrace. Of course, the asking price has also left 2008′s $22.4M in the dust: the owner now wants $35 million for the apartment. And the building’s gulf between rich and poor widens.
