residentialFinancial District Penthousehide
The building parapet conceals this penthouse from street view. Skylights and Atelier windows open the rooms skyward and to the terrace rather than to the horizon. Stained ash panels provide emphasis to the fireplace and bathroom in an otherwise clean white interior.
Previously, the neighborhood was considered to be primarily a destination for daytime traders and office workers from around New York City and the surrounding areas. The neighborhood now has a growing number of full-time residents, with estimates made in 2008 showing that there were approximately 56,000 people living in the area, a jump from the 15 to 20 thousand living there before 2001, with many buildings being converted from office space to apartments and condominiums during the 1990s and 2000s.Architect: David Howell
