The Glamorous Atmospheres of TRiBeCa

Giorgetti participates in the residential project 108 Leonard in New York: a refined blend of historical heritage and contemporary design

Giorgetti, 108 Leonard, New York

The history and unique charm of New York’s TRiBeCa neighborhood revive in the prestigious residential project 108 Leonard. Originally designed by the Gilded Age architects McKim, Mead & White in 1898 as the headquarters for the New York Life Insurance Company, the building has been repurposed for residential use to accommodate 160 luxurious apartments. 

The firms Beyer Blinder Belle and Jeffrey Beers International have preserved the original identity, maintaining original elements such as the Italian Renaissance style facade, which is part of the United States National Register of Historic Places, the monumental marble staircase, the atrium railing, and a marble hall that once served New York Life’s VIP clients. The glamourous atmosphere of the district – once a commercial area, now a luxury residential destination rich in industrial lofts transformed into galleries – can be felt within its walls, harmoniously integrated with the Giorgetti design that adorns the communal areas. 

The over 2,000 square meters of amenity spaces – which include a media room, a games room, the charming “Marble Room” waiting area, a private dining room with a cellar, a fitness center, and a children’s play area – are adorned with Giorgetti collections, catalog and custom, including Carlo Colombo’s modular Skyline sofa, Ago sofas, Topaze poufs, Bigwig 4.50 metres dining table in Canaletto walnut version, Margot and Janet armchairs. In the elegant Marble Room, Drive sofas harmonize with Opus armchairs, while the iconic 90° Minuto foosball table, upholstered in light leather, stands out in the games room.
