Curious to see what’s inside the historic Woolworth Building’s copper-clad pinnacle? Surrounded by four turrets, the property comes with a private, 360-degree observatory deck with elaborate Gothic ornamentation. This space could be transformed into one of Manhattan’s most unique apartments.
The 106-year-old Woolworth Building is one of New York City’s most historic and iconic towers.
The 792-foot tower was the tallest building in the world for 17 years, from its completion in 1913 until 1930, at which point the Chrysler Building overtook it.
Originally developed by the F.W. Woolworth Company as an office building, the Woolworth Building was nicknamed the ” Cathedral of Commerce ” and housed tenants such as Nikola Tesla and the Manhattan Project .
Today, while the lower 28 floors remain offices, Alchemy Properties now owns floors 29 and up and transformed them into 32 luxury residences over the course of a five-year, multimillion-dollar renovation. The restoration work on the exterior alone cost $22 million.
We got inside the building for a tour of one of these residences: Pavilion A, a $29.85 million condo that’s the most expensive unit currently listed in the building. When the building’s 9,680-square-foot penthouse is finished, Pavilion A will be the second-most expensive condo in the building.
Joshua Judge, Stan Ponte, and Tate Kelly of Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.
Take a look inside the Woolworth’s Building Pavilion A, which spans 6,711 interior square feet and comes with two terraces.
