The Woolworth Building cuts an alluring and timeless silhouette along the Downtown Manhattan skyline—and in its century-old history, it has become a New York icon of architectural design and one of the world’s most recognizable skyscrapers. The Woolworth Building’s penthouse—known as the Pinnacle Penthouse—is a singular, once-in-a-generation offering in the New York real estate market. This landmarked home is currently offered as a blank canvas for its future owners to paint a distinctive architectural masterpiece of their own design.
Early renderings and floor plan designs from legendary, award-winning architectural talents Thierry W Despont and David Hotson allow potential purchasers the opportunity to envision how to transform this five-story home, which includes 9,680 square feet of interior space and a 408-square-foot outdoor observatory terrace. Designs by Despont emphasize the potential for grand entertaining and highlight its opulent details, while the alternate rendering by Hotson proposes acquisition of an additional floor.
The space already promises 125 windows, 24-foot ceilings, and a private, in-home elevator. The residence starts on the 50th floor, 727 feet above ground, with unparalleled panoramic views across its five floors and private terrace, and encompasses some of the most distinctive features of the Woolworth Building—including its green roof, which is topped by an octagonal pyramid with large arched windows. The Penthouse’s towering ceilings and open design provide an unparalleled and dramatic backdrop for displaying art collections and signature pieces of furniture—for a personalized sense of home in this paradise in the sky.
