Floating gem-like atop the landmarked 19th-century Cast Iron House at 67 Franklin Street, this pristine duplex penthouse was designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban. The four-bedroom-plus-den condo, asking $12 million, complements the Tribeca neighborhood’s finest 21st-century additions with details like sliding curtain window walls that appear to magically disappear, opening onto a 1,510-square-foot wraparound terrace.
Modern perks include key-locked elevator access, multi-zone heating and cooling, and a laundry room with a Miele washer and vented dryer. Lighting is seamlessly integrated indoors and out, and the sky is always visible.
On the lower level, the home’s flow and fluid indoor-outdoor architecture facilitate expansive living, dining, and entertaining. The living area is framed by floors of radiant-heated limestone and white oak, 20-foot ceilings, and sliding glass walls that reveal that vast private terrace.
A sleek, tailored kitchen is anchored by a waterfall island topped by Bianco Oro marble countertops. Custom white matte lacquer cabinets frame a suite of integrated Gaggenau appliances. A quiet study nook and a bedroom have access to a full bath.
On the upper level are three spacious bedrooms. The primary suite boasts a windowed walk-in closet and an elegant bathroom with radiant heated marble floors, a walk-in shower, and a freestanding soaking tub. The second and third bedrooms have terrace access and share a luxuriously appointed bath.
Built in 1881, the pet-friendly Cast Iron House condominium offers residents a 24-hour doorman, a state-of-the-art fitness center designed by The Wright Fit, a dance and yoga studio, a hydrotherapy spa, a steam and sauna room, a children’s playroom, bicycle storage, and a courtyard enhanced by a green wall.
