The Financial District is one of the fastest-growing residential neighborhoods in New York City, but one thing the neighborhood isn’t known for is lofty, open-plan apartments (blame the wave of office building conversions, which typically involve low ceilings and small rooms). For those looking for a lofty starter home in downtown Manhattan, might we suggest this William Street studio? Though at 845 square feet, this studio is bigger than most one-bedroom apartments in new developments. In fact, the open loft with beamed ceilings can be easily converted into a large one-bedroom residence.
Located on the 16th floor of the full-service Be@William building, The apartment sports a clean white look, and features white lacquer cabinets, integrated custom panel appliances, under-counter puck lighting and a large walk-in closet. And though FiDi is becoming a bustling and lively neighborhood, people who prefer the indoors can appreciate this residence as well: Be@William offers amenities such as a state-of-the-art rooftop fitness center and the Be@spot Sky Lounge, with entertainment center, pool table and wi-fi.
