Starchitect Philippe Starck has redesigned the old Chase bank into his prized downtown NYC property. Get access to beautiful large layouts, generous proportions, and many artistically designed amenities, including a bowling alley.
Unfortunately, because the property is an office building conversion, many of the units do not have properly defined bedrooms. Instead, the layouts are more loft-like, and some may lack natural light.
Oversized windows and 11 foot high ceilings allow sunlight to permeate throughout the 382 homes at Downtown by Philippe Starck. Maple hardwood floors flow throughout each residence, and kitchens are stocked with Bosch washer/dryers, dishwashers, and gas cooktops, as well as Jenn-Air refrigerators. Custom Hansgrohe faucets and lighting are designed by the building’s namesake. Baths feature Hansgrohe shower fixtures, Thassos marble-finished countertops, vessel sinks, and Duravit soaking tubs.
Shining a light on the NY Stock Exchange right across the street, the 42 stories of this tower are a landmark of modern design. Resident amenities include a full-time doorman, concierge, laundry and housekeeping services, swimming pool, fitness center that features basketball and squash courts and a bowling alley, business center, sports lounge, children’s rooms, and a 5,000 square-foot roof terrace with seating.
Located in the heart of the Financial District, the building is in the center of one of the most historic spots in Manhattan. The neighborhood is typically quiet in the evenings after everyone has left work for the day. During the day, restaurants such as Delmonico’s, which is credited as the first fine dining restaurant in the country, are full of lunchtime diners, while after hours, Stone Street is a popular destination for those looking for a laid back area to decompress.
