Raising the Roof - Sunday, January 19, 2014
The Cast Iron House in Tribeca will soon allow residents to know what it feels like to truly be on top of the world. The two duplex penthouses, designed by architect Shigeru Ban, will stand in stark contrast to the original design of the 132-year-old landmark building, adding a stylish and modern touch to the classic Tribeca loft building. Unlike the condominium building's other duplexes, which range from 2,850 to 4,890 square feet, the penthouses will encompass between 3,800 and 4,560 square feet of indoor space, with cantilevered doors opening fully onto the penthouses' additional 1,430 and1,530 square feet of private outdoor sanctuary.
