In the game of Monopoly, Park Place has one of the highest mortgage rates and rent rates in the game, and is also one of the hardest spots to land on. It is thus coveted to be on Park Place. In Lower Manhattan, we have our own Park Place that is making a name for itself as a destination for some of downtown’s best luxury living. Famous architects from Robert A.M. Stern to Jean Nouvel are putting their mark on Park Place. Here is the best of Park Place:
Woolworth Tower Residences – 2 Park Place
Situated at the gateway to Tribeca by City Hall Park, the Woolworth Tower has been an icon of the downtown skyline since its completion in 1913. The building was originally commissioned by retail titan Frank Woolworth, and has had a storied history. French architect Thierry Despont, known for his restoration skills, is transforming the top 30 floors into a boutique collection of 33 luxury residences. Additionally, the top of the tower will feature a crown jewel of all of the city – a 7 story penthouse that is rumored to be asking $100M+. In his transformation, Despont is paying great attention to detail and homage to the building's landmark status and heritage as well as its Beaux-Arts design, visible from the small "W" detailing in the kitchen to the intricate residential lobby entrance.
The homes feature gracious layouts with high ceilings as well as features such as eat-in kitchens and luxurious master baths sheathed in Calacatta Prima marble. Views from the residences of the skyline and beautiful terra cotta ornamentation are stunning!
The building also offers an impressive collection of amenities, starting with the beautifully restored lobby with coffered ceilings on 2 Park Place. Amenity offerings include a 50-foot lap pool, fitness center with sweeping North and East views, wine storage, wine-tasting room, and a private residents’ lounge.
Current availability starts with a 1 bed/1.5 bath asking $4.575M.
Four Seasons Private Residences Downtown – 30 Park Place
30 Park Place, the first private residences by the Four Seasons in New York, has had an overwhelmingly positive reception since its launch. The building is positioned conveniently in the heart of downtown Manhattan, moments from The Oculus, TriBeCa, and SoHo.
30 Park Place is a Silverstein Property designed by Robert A.M. Stern architects and is currently the tallest residential tower in lower Manhattan standing at 937 feet. The building is home to 157 luxury residences.
Residences feature a warm feel, a recognizable feature of many of Stern’s homes. Because residences start on high floors, many offer multiple exposures with wonderful views of downtown. Finishes include solid white oak cabinetry, Colorado White Marble, and Bianco Dolomite marble in master baths.
Because this is the Four Seasons Private Residences, residents of 30 Park Place enjoy a suite of amenities and offerings that offer an unparalleled luxury living experience. Residents can enjoy access to hotel amenities such as the indoor lap pool, in-residence dining from Wolfgang Puck's CUT, and car service.
It is also rumored that big names are calling the building home including Yolanda Hadid.
