Maya Lin has been commissioned to design a 20,000-square-feet urban mansion in New York's Tribeca neighborhood. The five-story proposal, seen first on Tribeca Trib, aims to replace a 1980s mixed-use building on 11 Hubert Street. If approved, the of metal, glass and limestone building would rise 70-feet and house five bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a dog room, wine closet, screening room, landscaped courtyard, 5,000-square-foot fitness center, basement, garage and more. 

Lin is teaming up with long-time collaborators Bialosky + Partners Architects for the job. As architect William Bialosky says, “[Lin] does the aesthetic part of the design, reviewing it with me... I figure out how to build it.” 

The project is currently seeking approval of the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

“This could be beautiful somewhere else,” said Community Board 1’s Landmarks Committee Chair Roger Byrom. “But I’m commenting on what my sense of place is for that historic district. For me, that modern addition doesn’t contextually feel comfortable.”
