When it was initially built in 1913, the Woolworth Building was the tallest building in the world. A full century later, this building remains an iconic part of Downtown New York’s skyline. Thanks to a carefully planned out renovation, the building now features a total of 34 gorgeous residences.
When plans for this building were first made, it was expected to be 420 feet tall. But by the time the original construction was complete, the Woolworth Building stood at 729 feet in height. Over the last century, everyone from photographers to painters to everyday New Yorkers has been inspired by this majestic building. Thanks to the savvy direction of The Office of Thierry W Despont, the Woolworth Building is now an incredible location to call home.
Cass Gilbert was responsible for the building’s original Neo-Gothic architecture. Because the Woolworth Building is such an essential part of New York City history, Thierry W Despont put a lot of time into ensuring that his updates to the building properly honor its groundbreaking architecture.
Because the building’s 34 residences start on the 29th floor, every home in the Woolworth Building provides an incredible view. Elegant kitchens feature handcrafted maple cabinetry and marble countertops. Matching marble backsplashes tie this space together perfectly. Even more, marble can be found in the master bathrooms. These luxurious spaces include steam showers and heated floors for maximum comfort. Two of the building’s residences include private terraces. Known as the Pavilion Residences, these peaceful outdoor areas provide beautiful views of the building and the rest of the city.
Residents’ needs will be attended to by a full-time concierge and 24-hour doorman. The building’s concourse level includes a pool that’s reserved for residents. The pool area also features a hot tub and sauna. A wine cellar and tasting room can be found on this level of the building as well. Then on the 29th floor is the Gilbert Lounge, while the building’s fitness studio is on the 30th floor.
Although not all of the Woolworth Building’s residences are on the market yet, some pricing information has been released to the public. The starting price for a home in this exclusive building is $3.875 million. At the top end of the price range is a seven-level penthouse which has an asking price of $110 million.
With its location in Tribeca, the Woolworth Building is right in the center of what’s commonly referred to as the New Downtown. Hudson River Parks, Brookfield Place and One World Trade Center are just a few highlights of the surrounding neighborhood. Residents of this building will be able to enjoy access to some of the test commerce, culture, art, and food options that New York City has to offer.
