Located on charming Franklin Street in historic Tribeca, Cast Iron House has been transformed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect, Shigeru Ban, into 13 unique duplex residences that feature soaring double-height living spaces.
Originally built in 1881, the building is a development of Knightsbridge Properties Corp., a Tribeca-based real estate company committed to design-led redevelopment of historic and landmarked buildings in New York, Berlin, and London.
Three- to five-bedroom residences feature solid white oak flooring, expansive exposures, and custom kitchens with oversized islands and matte white lacquer cabinetry designed by Shigeru Ban.
Two glass penthouses float atop the cast iron building through use of a steel cantilevered Vierendeel truss system. A series of telescoping walls on the main living level open to create a seamless transition from the interiors to the private outdoor terraces.
In the newly completed model residence by Manhattan-based designer Brad Ford, the light-filled, double-height corner living room boasts 25-foot ceilings, with double-hung windows and striking views of the cast iron façade of the building.
The kitchen, which opens to the great room is outfitted with Gaggenau appliances and features Dornbracht fixtures, a Bianco Dolomiti marble island, and slab countertops.
The media room is outfitted with custom millwork designed by Shigeru Ban.
The master suite is nearly 1,000 square feet, with a generously proportioned dressing room. It has an en suite bathroom with a custom Corian vanity, Rosa Aurora marble walls, a deep soaking bathtub, and radiant heated floors.
Amenities include a hydrotherapy spa, dance studio, residents’ lounge, playroom, courtyard with green wall, and 24-hour doorman.
