100 Franklin DDG

Rendering: DDG

Permits have washed up for DDG’s controversial 100 Franklin Street in Tribeca.

The mixed-use development is set to rise 95 feet high on two triangular parking lots between White and Franklin streets on Sixth Avenue.

The eight-story, six-unit building will have 22,367 square feet of residential space and 2,488 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, according to permits filed last week. There will be full-floor apartments from floors 2 to 6, while the seventh and eighth levels will be occupied by a duplex. The development will have storage and a roof terrace.

DDG and architect Peter Guthrie’s original plans, revealed last year, called for a condo with a four-layered facade of fritted glass, reclaimed brick, metal and interior glazing. Ire and ice from local preservationists ensued; a Landmarks commissioner deemed the first design “too frenetic, too show-offy,” while Community Board 1 called the penthouse a “rambling, jagged mess,” The Tribeca Trib reported.

In January, Guthrie presented a more sedate rendition in reddish brick, with a Romanesque arch on the ground floor and Jack arches punctuating the facade, Curbed reported. The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the new design.

DDG purchased the land from Peter Matera and reportedly asked the seller for more time before setting a closing date, according to Downtown Express. The $9.5 million deal closed in late February and hit public records in March.
