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.
