The Building: Ralph Walker's dramatic art deco crown jewel. Floorplans promise 10'2" ceilings, large windows and lofty layouts. Beautiful public and private terraces.
The Neighborhood: On the cusp of Tribeca, proximity to the MTA's new Oculus hub provides plentiful access to public transportation. Tribeca proper is a quick jaunt by foot. West Side Highway nearby plus valet parking makes for quick airport/out of town getaways. New retail developments at Brookfield Place and the World Financial Center render a trip uptown unnecessary for those needing a quick shopping fix.
The Neighbors: Floors 1 through 11 will remain as Verizon facilities. Can you hear me now?
The Amenities: Featuring 40,000 sq ft of amenities, including the usual pool, gym, playrooms etc. Unique additions include a wine tasting room with private lockers, private storage for each unit, special Verizon 1GB internet service that is 20x faster than normal Fios and a grand lobby level entertaining space. Post your party pics faster than anyone else in the neighborhood.
The Pricing: Starting around $2,500 psf.
ur Verdict: Somewhat skeptical of being in the same building with a bunch of Verizon workers. Traditional interior finishes are clean and tasteful - may not raise your pulse but not as heavy handed as some other developments in the area. High floor units will offer birds eye view of 1 WTC and vistas to the north and west with a more open and lofty feel than what you will find in other Financial District buildings.
