The stars must have aligned when the storm hit, because we finally, finally have a good look inside the Woolworth Tower Residences, courtesy of the building’s two new model units: 38A and 38B.
While interior designer, Thierry W Despont, is the man behind the building’s interiors as a whole, the model units called upon some more local talent.
Manhattan-based designer Alan Tanksley, worked on the three-bedroom 38A, while Eve Robinson is responsible for the two-bedroom 38B.
“Each model has an identity: 38A enhances the history of the building with a deep color palate coupled with a transitional design aesthetic, while 38B is a modern design with pops of color and contemporary art,” said Stan Ponte, senior global real estate advisor at Sotheby’s International Realty and co-director of sales for The Woolworth, in a press release.
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.
The first listings at the eagerly anticipated building officially hit the market earlier this year.
