The Woolworth Tower x Alvin Ailey x NYC

The Woolworth Tower Residences partnered with the world renowned Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater to showcase a dance imagined to represent the resilience and beauty of New York City in the face of a pandemic, social strife and our collective responsibility to celebrate both our diversity as well as our differences as we seek to come together and move forward in our great City. The Ailey company embodies this ethos which is further exemplified by founder Alvin Ailey’s words: ‘I am trying to show the world that we are all human beings and that color is not important. What is important is the quality of our work.’ The quality of the Woolworth Building as a backdrop to the beauty of Alvin Ailey’s Pas de Duke, set to Duke Ellington’s music, displays over a century of New York City’s prominence as the architectural and cultural center of the world. Dancers Jacqueline Green and Yannick Lebrun glide through Pavilion A, an almost 10,000 square foot loft like residence with 22 foot tall ceilings and art comes to life atop the terrace with picturesque 360 degree views of New York City. To complete the piece at the world-famous Woolworth Pinnacle with an homage to John Lennon and New York City is a thrilling reminder of why we love the City!

The Woolworth Tower

The Woolworth Building soars above City Hall Park at the gateway to TriBeCa. Unprecedented in size and sophistication when it was first completed in 1913, this graceful tower remains an elegant jewel in the skyline of downtown Manhattan. Today, the top thirty floors are being masterfully transformed by famed French architect Thierry W Despont into The Woolworth Tower Residences: a limited collection of thirty- three luxury condominium residences atop a celebrated New York City landmark.

Thierry W Despont

Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur, Mr. Despont is the world’s foremost designer of extraordinary restorations, opulent private estates, and legendary hotels, including work at the Getty Center, The Carlyle New York, The Ritz Paris, and Claridge’s London. The associate architect for the restoration of the Statue of Liberty, Mr. Despont is inspired by the opportunity to be involved with the restoration of another monumental New York landmark.

The New Downtown

The incomparable location of The Woolworth Building offers immediate access to the best of Tribeca as well as The New Downtown, Manhattan’s new epicenter of culture and commerce.
