Poolside with Battery Park City's Liberty Twins

By Joey

Down in Battery Park City right behind the ball fields, the last empty patch of land zoned for residential use is being filled with a pair of buildings from Milstein Properties: Liberty Luxe (200 North End Avenue) and Liberty Green (300 North End Avenue). Construction is zipping right along after a long pause for some union busting, and The Real Deal reports that sales will kick off this spring in advance of an early 2011 completion. Can’t contain your excitement? A teaser site has gone live with a sign-up for a “VIP list.” How exclusive!

We’ve seen the condo complex modeled, but, oddly, never rendered. That is, until a tipster pointed us to the website of EE&K Architects, which features the images seen above. There’s also all sorts of mindnumbing copy detailing the project’s many eco-friendly features, like renewable energy, lighting strategies, ventilation, insula—whoa is that an outdoor pool up on that deck?! Mama Earth likey!
