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.

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.
