It's safe to say there is no apartment in all of New York City that is quite like the Woolworth Building's splendid Pavilion B. The residence sits at the 29th Floor, 400 feet over Broadway and Park Place, where the building's broad base meets its tower. Unlike the majority of the Woolworth's other residences, which hew closely to the building's classic prewar sensibilities, Pavilion B radiates a distinctly modern vibe.
The home's particulars include three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, encompassing 4,623 square feet. The residence also boasts more than 1,200 square feet of private outdoor space, in the form of a 51-foot-long terrace and a separate roof deck at the top of a spiral staircase. In addition to sweeping Manhattan skyline vistas, these spaces afford something truly unexpected: an up-close view of the Woolworth Building itself. "To be in a home in the Woolworth Building where part of your view is of the Woolworth Building," muses Ken Horn. "That's extraordinary."
Pavilion B's bright master suite stretches 35 feet from end to end, along the way opening onto the terrace. The suite boasts a dressing room and a walk-in closet, leading to a stupendous spa bathroom with a heated Calacatta marble floor with glossy black Nero Marquina accents. A custom double vanity, a Porcelanosa freestanding bathtub, and a marble steam shower define the space, each adorned with gleaming platinum-finish fixtures from Dornbracht.
At the heart of the home, a 47-foot-long open entertaining space — punctuated by a spiral staircase that leads to a lofted library — reaches up 22 feet to a peaked ceiling. Adjacent to the great room, the kitchen is a wonderland for serious gourmets, with custom Dada cabinetry crafted by the Molteni Group, Calacatta Cadia marble countertops and backsplash, and restaurant-quality Miele appliances, including a full-size refrigerator and freezer, a wine fridge, two dishwashers, a professional range oven, and double wall ovens.
Rounding out the residence, two additional bedrooms, each with its own sumptuous bathroom, offer framable views of Manhattan and the river.
All residents of the Woolworth enjoy building amenities befitting this rarefied address, including access to a private residential lobby at 2 Park Place, a first-class fitness studio, a temperature controlled wine cellar and tasting room, and, of course, F.W. Woolworth's subterranean swimming pool, magnificently restored and adorned with brilliant Bisazza Mosaico tile.
Priced at $15,950,000, the Woolworth's singular Pavilion B is represented by Corcoran agent Deanna Kory.
