NEW YORK - Architect Enrique Norten and TEN Arquitectos announce five new commercial and residential buildings in New York City. Projects such as the upcoming 580 Carroll Street, Cassa Hotel, Clinton Park, Habita Hotel Chelsea and the recently completed ONE York demonstrate the firm's position as a leader in efficient and progressive urban architecture.

Even though the city's frenzied pace of construction has slowed, TEN Arquitectos continues to make major contributions to the New York skyline. This success demonstrates the importance of intensive site analysis, economy, and sustainability in the context of development.

Clinton Park: Located at 11th Avenue between 53rd and 54th streets, The Clinton Park Mixed Use Development occupies a over half a city block, comprising 1.3 million square feet of commercial and residential space. The building offers two different façade conditions: a solid exterior with smaller openings along the street edges of the building, and a lighter, glass curtain-wall along the interior. The stepped terraces of its 28-floor tower offer river and urban views and provide outdoor space on every floor. The project contains some 900 apartment units (20% inclusionary) and incorporates a 25,000-square foot health club. Clinton Park is anchored by a Mercedes Benz showroom, a large neighborhood market, and a 35,000 square-foot horse stable for the NYPD Mounted Police at street level.

ONE York: ONE York is an upscale, 32-unit residential condominium located at Sixth Avenue and Canal Street. The project is a sleek fusion of old and new. A crystalline shaft penetrates a pre-existing industrial loft building and rises in a stunning prow of glass and steel seven stories above it. Rooted in its history, the new structure preserves the early industrial character of the streetscape, as it reaches for the sky. Apartment interiors redefine the New York loft as sophisticated contemporary space, with nine- and ten-foot ceilings, brushed stainless steel hardware, polished natural wide plank white oak flooring, top-quality appliances and appointments. With luxury amenities and forward-thinking design and systems, ONE York incorporates residences, community space, retail units, and parking. This project has just completed construction.

580 Carroll Street: 580 Carroll Street, in Park Slope, Brooklyn, is a 30,000 square foot condominium containing 17 apartment units. The project is set back and separated from Carroll Street by a 3,000-square-foot shared garden. Introducing an element of country living to its urban site, the project ensures a quiet, authentic neighborhood experience, from the wooden boardwalk leading to its main entrance to its brownstone and garden views. Its two main volumes consist of poured-in-place concrete structures oriented toward the garden and toward the center of Park Slope. Each unit offers a unique outdoor space that emphasizes the apartments’ eating and cooking spaces and establishes a clean-lined framework.

Cassa Hotel: Cassa is located in mid-town Manhattan, at 70 West 45th Street, two blocks north of Bryant Park. This tower is a dramatic architectural statement, using its windows and their punctured rhythm to become the facade's only ornaments, distinguishing it from the more conventional glass and stone edifices of New York's midtown. Cassa's program mixes public and private: combining restaurant and bar with boutique Hotel and luxury Condominiums that share a common triple height lobby. The resulting design allows the two to co-exist while functioning independently. The tower itself is delicately proportioned, resulting from the small site and slender floor plate, like an Obelisk marking the site.

Habita Hotel Chelsea: Located at 516 West 27th Street, the Habita Hotel Chelsea respects both the visual palette and the height of its surroundings. The building features a metal mesh façade and exterior glass elevator, which rises up through a slender glass column. The ground level program contains both a brasserie and bar lounge. The roof deck feature a pool, bar, and garden terrace.
