The New York real estate market is about to be home to a new crop of intriguing and highly sought-after Tribeca lofts and penthouses thanks to the launch of sales at Franklin Street’s Cast Iron House. Built in 1882, the building has been updated by Pritzker Prize-winner Shigeru Ban, under whose supervision the original façade has been restored and the interior transformed into luxury homes. The building now houses 11 duplex residences and two penthouses measuring up to 4,500 square feet. Each residence has been outfitted with luxe details, including white oak flooring, soaring 17 to 25-foot ceilings, and heated marble flooring in the master bedrooms.The building’s common areas include a number of calming amenities from a relaxing spa, sauna, and steam room inside to tranquil outdoor space featuring a lush private garden.
