Images are out now for the redesigned penthouse in 100 Barclay Street, an Art Deco skyscraper adjacent to One World Trade Center on the southern edge of Tribeca. The 32-story building, originally known as the Barclay-Vesey Building, opened in 1927, designed by architect Ralph Walker. During the September 11th attack, the building suffered heavy damage on its southern and eastern facades. Tishman Realty & Construction led its repairs, with William F. Collins responsible for the restoration. The project was finished in three years at a cost of $1.4 billion, whereby all ornamental details and carving motifs were fixed. Since then, the upper floors have been converted to condominiums.
Verizon has been operating from the building for a significant period, giving it the name, The Verizon Building. In 2013, developer Ben Shaoul of Magnum Real Estate Group purchased the top 22 floors for conversion to condominiums.
The penthouse is expected to sell for $59 million. The spacious 14,500 square feet duplex includes a private elevator landing on the 32nd floor, with marble mosaic flooring and what is said to be ‘the largest continuous art wall in any private home in New York City’, measured 65 feet wide, and 22 feet tall. It is also said to have the largest living room in the city, with arched windows rising up 21 feet. The developer left the space mostly untouched, allowing for prospective buyers to have freedom in redesigning the apartment.
Magnum Real Estate Group and CIM Group are responsible for the development. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is responsible for marketing and sales.
