At the beginning this marvelous building was built aiming for it to become the tallest building in the world. The Woolworth conveniently rises above the City Hall Park navigator at the gateway to Tribeca encompassing a limited collection of thirty-four, half-floor, full-floor and penthouse condominium residences with its terra cotta, neo-Gothic façade. This tower is soon to be proclaimed New York’s newest iconic residential address. All the residences start about 370 feet in the sky offering splendid river-to-river, cityscape and skyline views.
Thierry Despont has aimed to combine a prewar ambiance with a more contemporary design to make it luxurious but still maintain a historical touch. Thierry’s is well known for having quite a vast portfolio consisting of extraordinary handiwork that goes from singular private residential estates and renewed hotels comfortably looking out to prominent places such as The Statue of Liberty, Place Vendome and The Ritz in Paris. By the time the residents enter the lobby on Park Place, originally designed in the bay aesthetic by Cass Gilbert, gazing up at the handcrafted ceiling tiles restored from Frank Woolworth’s office will be quite inevitable. Another striking feature The Woolworth Tower Residences offers are one only lounge, wine cellar and tasting room, private fitness studio, a pool with spa elements including a sauna and hot tub, 24-hour doorman and a full time concierge.
