The landmarked 32-story building at 100 Barclay Street–formerly known as the Barclay-Vesey Building–is considered by some to be the world’s first Art Deco skyscraper. Designed by notable Jazz Age architect Ralph Walker, the building first opened in 1927; the tower’s upper floors were reimagined as luxurious loft residences in 2015. The grandest of these, unit 20B, is a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home that spans 3,665 square feet, currently on the market for $8.8 million.
Beautifully detailed with loft-like proportions and pre-war styling, the sprawling space begins with a formal foyer. An open great room with northern and western exposures is framed by seven-foot casement windows and pristine four-inch white oak herringbone floors.
The kitchen gets understated European design right, with gold-accented light wood cabinetry wrapped in Calacatta Gold marble. A central island seats five. The modern millwork conceals state-of-the-art appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Miele. An adjacent dining room is large enough for grand-scale entertaining.
The home’s primary suite is a study in tranquility in crisp white with pale flooring, with two large closets. The corresponding bath offers radiant floor heating, marble tiles, a custom vanity, and a steam shower. Additional bedrooms also have plenty of closet space and luxurious ensuite baths.
The apartment also has a laundry room with a washer, dryer, and sink. Functional infrastructure includes a multi-zone heating and cooling system that’s elegantly hidden within the home’s walls.

In addition to two lobbies, One Hundred Barclay offers more than 40,000 square feet of amenity space including a doorman and concierge, a fitness center, an 82-foot lap pool with adjacent children’s pool, and spa and treatment rooms.
On the 18th-floor club level, you’ll find a billiards room, a dining room, bar and lounge, a children’s playroom, a teen lounge, a media lounge, a wine room, and four outdoor terraces. The building also offers bicycle parking and private storage and five-minute walking access to the shops at Westfield World Trade Center, Fulton Center, and Brookfield Place, as well as the parks and waterfront promenade at Battery Park City.
