YIMBY Scopes Views From The Woolworth Building’s Pavilion Residences, in The Financial District

The views from the upper floors of the Woolworth Building have been seldom seen since its construction, but now that the tower is partially transforming into residences, YIMBY has an inside look at what New York City looks like from the top of one of its oldest and most iconic Downtown skyscrapers.

Luxury brokerage Sotheby’s International Realty recently listed a $33.5 million unit in the iconic Woolworth Building, aka Two Park Place. This is only one of two homes located in the setback portion of the 106-year-old architectural masterpiece. It is listed as Pavilion A, and is part of “The Pavilion Residences” collection, with this unit featuring 2,700 square feet of spacious outdoor terraces. There are views of Midtown, City Hall, the Manhattan Municipal Building, the East River, and the World Trade Center. The Cass Gilbert-designed masterpiece is being re-developed by Alchemy Properties.

Pavilion A has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and two powder rooms. The wide kitchen has white marble, cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances. The large living room has a grand piano, wooden floors, and arched windows that frame the views of Downtown Manhattan and the neighboring skyscrapers. There are actually two levels to the outdoor space, connected by a spiraling metal staircase.

Pavilion B has yet to be listed, and is currently being used as a fully furnished, 4,600-square-foot model unit with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and one powder room. The outdoor space for that residence measures 1,250 square feet, and has a perfect view of One World Trade Center, with abundant morning and afternoon sunlight.

The most expensive unit will be at the very top of the crown portion of the Woolworth Building, called the Pinnacle. The five-story residence is currently asking $110 million and will include what was once the observatory for the 792-foot-tall structure.

    Great photos, but why don’t we see any interior shots even if unfinished?
