A look at the Woolworth Tower’s new round of listings

The first listings at the eagerly anticipated Woolworth Tower Residences officially hit the market last week.

The building’s new residences have been under construction since 2012, and pretty much kept hidden the entire time (the developers gave a construction site tour back in July 2015, then released a few renderings later that year, followed by another brief peek last November).

Last time we spoke to Stan Ponte, a broker with Sotheby’s International Realty and the co-director of sales for the project, he couldn’t dish too much on sales, contracts or prices at the Tribeca tower. But now we have a little dirt.

The most expensive unit to hit the market so far is the full floor, $26.4 million 31A, which spans 5,991 square feet and comes with four bedrooms and two private terraces.

The cheapest meanwhile is the $7.2 million 32B, a 2,548 square foot, two-bedroom spread.

Rumor has it the building is also set to hold a nine-floor “Pinnacle” penthouse unit, reportedly set to be priced at $110 million.

Commissioned by retail magnate F. W. Woolworth, and designed by Cass Gilbert, the Woolworth building was officially inaugurated on April 24, 1913, when President Woodrow Wilson flipped a switch in the White House to illuminate what was then the world’s tallest building. Almost a century later, Alchemy Properties bought the top 30 floors of the tower and started converting them into 33 loft-like homes, which are designed by Thierry W. Despont
