The Grabler Building is a Renaissance revival prewar mid-rise, first erected in 1896. The apartments offered by the Grabler feature original brick walls, which are sure to remind residents of the building’s long history.
The walls do provide a classical atmosphere for residents, but there are many contemporary features that make for a blend of old and new. The kitchens are up to date with Miele dishwashers, Gaggenau cook tops, Theramador wall ovens, and other stainless steel appliances. Each unit features a gas fireplace, which should help heat the place up quickly on cold winter nights. The bathroom is quite modern, with Kohler two-person whirlpool tubs surrounded by Misazza mosaic glass tiles.
The penthouses are a cut above the other New York apartments, as they feature money-saving wood-burning fireplaces, six-burner Viking stoves and free-standing tubs. The design of the penthouse apartments differs, as well. They feature exposures in three directions, as well as high ceilings and private terraces boasting more than 1,400 square feet.
The Grabler Building has very basic amenities. The lobby features an attendant and video security, so residents can feel safe. Adding to this feeling of safety is a key-locked elevator, which prevents strangers from moving freely around the building.
The Grabler Building is located in Tribeca, an area popular for its nightspots, upscale dining, and shopping. It’s a great area, surrounded by plenty to do and numerous opportunities for public transit within walking distance.
