The Zinc Building


The zinc building located at 475 Greenwich, New York should really be called the glass building. This high-end luxurious 7-story, 21 unit residential building was constructed adjacent to the entrance to the Holland tunnel. The Zinc Building featuring 11-foot windows interspersed with metallic panels, will offer residents spacious open layouts, lavish finishes and a plethora of amenities.  The luxurious building includes three duplex penthouse residences with terrace space on the seventh floor. The loft building will offer sun-drenched living rooms, opulently appointed chef kitchens, lushly designed spa baths and a concierge. Its structure consists of cast in place concrete with a deep pile foundation, transfer girders and a podium floor housing penthouses and terraces. Walking columns allowed varying floor layouts without additional transfer girders. The building required a special foundation design in order to obtain the approval of the Port Authority. This triangular property bounded by Canal, Watts, and Greenwich Streets will add another modernist condo loft project to the growing list in the area.
