Swedish for “unite,” Förena is fittingly named for its prime location at the nexus of downtown’s top neighborhoods. Here’s an inside look at its one-of-a-kind design. NYC’s celebrated architect Morris Adjmi designed Förena inside and out to evoke a powerful sense of serenity, creating an island of calm within the bustling neighborhood.
Its distinctive facade uses symmetry to cultivate a familiar presence amidst the unpredictable streetscape, with masonry detailing, cascading setback terraces and sloping metal frames that form a modern crown. Förena’s 50 soothing homes embrace tranquility with high-quality materials and a Scandinavian-like color palette.
Each home boasts a fluid layout with floor-to-ceiling windows for immense natural light, and several will enjoy private outdoor space.
The robust amenity package includes a rooftop outdoor dining and kitchen area, a modern fitness center with natural light, multiple lounge areas, a landscaped Zen garden courtyard, private aperitif lockers, a bike room, and storage. The building is also in close proximity to Union Square, home to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, with easy access to transportation.
