This is my favourite skyscraper ever. It looks so imposingly majestic in its neogothic cathedral style looks. Beats the glass towers of today a billion to zero. Modern day glass skyscrapers make me want to vomit. This style used in Woolworth Building has a certain type of class in it... like the steam liners of the old days when compared to modern day cruise ships.

Woolworth Penthouse Relisted For $79 Million, Showcases New Interior Renderings





Heather Senison

After sitting on the market for several years, “The Pinnacle” penthouse at the top of New York City’s famed Woolworth Building is relisted with its first furnished renderings and a lower price.

Originally listed for $110 million in 2017, the property, which spans the top five floors of the tower, is now priced at $79 million.

Though the home is offered as a fully-unfurnished “white-box” unit, developer Alchemy Properties hired award-winning architect David Hotson to create renderings of its interiors. Since the unit has a cylindrical layout, the new photos aim to help potential buyers envision living in the uniquely-shaped space.

Commissioned by F.W. Woolworth and designed by Cass Gilbert, the 58-story Woolworth Building was the tallest structure in the world when it was completed in 1913. Alchemy Properties, together with French architect Thierry W. Despont, renovated 106-year-old landmark’s tower into 32 condos, which have a starting price of $2.85 million.
Quote:
The 9,680-square-foot penthouse, which occupies floors 50 through 55, features a private 408-square-foot observatory on the 58th level, along with exclusive elevator access, 24-foot ceilings and more than 125 windows.

“The Pinnacle at The Woolworth Tower Residences has been described by some as a ‘castle in the sky’ and by others as the ‘highest mansion in Manhattan,’” Ponte and Judge said in a statement.

“However a buyer may think of the space, it is ultimately a home, and the renderings and proposed design by award-winning architect David Hotson allows potential purchasers to understand how they could live in this penthouse of penthouses,” they said. “In particular, David Hotson’s brilliant use of vertical sight-lines, floor plans that maximize light and air, breathtaking floating staircases and internal elevators have literally ‘elevated’ the space from a landmark penthouse to a piece of art.”

Holy shit, that is the most amazing apartment of all time. You could also get in pretty good shape just going up and down those stairs a few times a day. Also, why do all fancy apartment/condo renderings always include a telescope somewhere? Are rich people obsessed with telescopes?

^ This shows you don't have to be at the top of the tallest building to feel like the king of the world.
