Modern Luxury in Tribeca

By AP Connolly

Now and then, a home comes along that stuns. Whether you discover amazing views or fall in love with a unique floorplan, an emotion you can’t quite articulate takes over. At One Hundred Barclay Street in Tribeca—the world’s first Art Deco skyscraper by renowned architect Ralph Walker—the spectacular Duplex Penthouse provides the inexplicable “wow” factor of a true masterpiece.

Originally conceived as the headquarters for the New York Telephone Company in 1927 the building has been heralded as “one of the most significant structures in skyscraper design,” by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Today, it is the height of loft living and offers more amenities than any other Tribeca address.

After careful study of the many architectural and design opportunities for the Penthouse, the layouts were indeed deemed limitless, including space for up to seven bedrooms. CIM Group and Magnum Real Estate Group know that a discerning buyer wants the ability to design and customize the home to suit their lifestyle.

The Penthouse spans over 14,500 square feet and occupies the entirety of the building’s top two floors. The home features private keyed elevator access along with a private elevator landing with custom marble mosaic flooring which leads to a windowed gallery entrance. With one of the most extensive continuous art walls in New York, the Penthouse is a blank canvas for a serious collector with abundant space for sculptures and extraordinary pieces of museum-level scale.

The Penthouse features the largest-known living room in New York City, which is 96 feet long by 32 feet wide and boasts over 3,000 square feet of space. Iconic skyline and water views are even more spectacular through the residence’s signature, dramatic arched windows, some of which span 9 feet wide and rise to 20 feet tall.

The owner will enjoy a sprawling 1,000+ square foot entertainment kitchen with butlery, dining area, a pass-through 630 bottle wine cellar, and after-dinner lounge with wet bar and fireplace. Fireplace infrastructure is provided to create a dramatic double-height focal point. The uses of this space are infinite—casual morning breakfast, intimate dinners, and a demonstration kitchen for a chef, professional kitchen to support multi-course dinner parties, and more. The kitchen has Calacatta Gold marble countertops and backsplash, oak cabinetry and Franke sinks. A top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliance package includes fully integrated dual refrigerators and dual freezers, dual convection ovens, a cooking range with eight burners and griddle, and induction cooktop. The accessory cooking suite includes: steamer, fryer, and teppanyaki, high-performance hood and fully integrated dual dishwashers.

In addition to the great room and kitchen, the 32nd floor offers a completely customizable 1,300+ square feet of additional space. Powder rooms on the first level feature European Oak Herringbone floors, Zebrino marble walls, Noir St. Laurent marble vanity with Dornbracht fixtures and custom blackened steel medicine cabinet.

The second floor of The Penthouse is over 5,000 square feet of a blank canvas. More significant than most penthouses in the city, this floor alone offers a myriad of possibilities to create a perfectly tailored residence.

The building’s entrance on Barclay Street features a custom steel and glass canopy with built-in lighting and heat lamps. An arrival lobby, designed by the esteemed Jeffrey Beers International, features paneled millwork walls, atelier-style furnishings, and a gold leaf ceiling above. The landmarked Art Deco Grand Lobby with Ralph Walker-designed vaulted ceiling and hand-painted ceiling murals depicts the historical advancement of human communication.

The dramatic set-back of One Hundred Barclay reveals four individually programmed terrace experiences, which offer iconic water and cityscape vistas, all from the 18th floor, an elevation of 264 feet. Furnished and landscaped, each terrace is accessible from the Club Level. The Club Level includes a lounge with a bar and dining room, a wine tasting room with surrounding individual wine storage lockers for purchase. There is a media room along with a popular children’s playroom, designed in conjunction with Tribeca’s Playgarden and several music practice rooms with a piano.

The Fitness Center and Spa features interiors by Timothy Godbold including mosaic speeding nooks in the pool area and custom millwork, with The Wright Fit designed- and programmed-fitness center. Here, you’ll find a carefully curated, state-of-the-art cardio- and weight-training equipment along with an 82-foot lap pool, heated children’s wading pool, spa treatment rooms, steam room and sauna, and a yoga and Pilates studio with gyro-tonic open area ideal for personal training.

Services include a 24-hour concierge and doorman, porter and handyman services, live-in resident manager, private move-in, delivery, and service entrance, cold storage, one gig internet, private wine storage, and private storage. Pricing is $39.95 million.
