The Woolworth Building is a New York City landmark, and one of the world’s quintessential and most romantic skyscrapers. Commissioned by F.W. Woolworth in 1910 for the corporate headquarters of his eponymous company, this Cass Gilbert-designed Beaux-Arts masterpiece has been a popular architectural attraction for more than a century. In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson participated in the building’s official opening by turning on its lights remotely from Washington, D.C. The New York Times dubbed it the "Cathedral of Commerce," due to its European-inflected Gothic church sensibilities and its ushering in of a modern 20th century American skyscraper aesthetic.
Countless visitors have taken in extraordinary views from the 57th-floor observation deck, which is now a private amenity for the Woolworth Tower Residences Pinnacle Penthouse. Featured in Hollywood films, named to both the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission and the U.S. National Historic Landmark registries, and now an indelible part of the New York City skyline, the Woolworth Tower is inseparable from the city’s fabled history.
Today, residents of The Woolworth Tower Residences can live in a piece of architectural history, amid the details that rendered it an instant classic — the intricate, hand-set terracotta elements, the sculptural cupola, the sweeping views — as well as those of its restoration by one of the most celebrated architects of his generation, Thierry W Despont. Despont’s restoration has transformed the top 30 floors of this landmark into a superlative collection of Tribeca condominiums, which have preserved the spirit and grandeur of the Woolworth Building for a new generation of New Yorkers.
