Litinovy Chram - Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Lauded by developer Knightsbridge Properties as a “neoclassical landmark,” Franklin Street’s Cast Iron House is now the site of coveted Tribeca lofts and penthouses for sale. The late 19th-century building’s rebirth has been a labor of love for architect Shigeru Ban, who has restored more than 4,000 decorative pieces of the structure’s famous façade. While much of the lower-Manhattan landmark’s original charm has been maintained, the two penthouses that sit atop it boast the best of modern design, with glass exterior walls that can be retracted to reveal each residence’s spacious private terrace.
