Located in the heart of Tribeca on one of its most renowned streets, 140 Franklin Street is widely regarded as the finest loft building in Manhattan and apartment 5B embodies the highest level of refined loft living possible. Featuring 11-foot high ceilings, dramatic arched windows, original columns, wide plank Brazilian floors, industrial doors and an astounding 82-foot wide living room, this 6,226-square-foot apartment has unrivaled scale and volume allowing for the most generous of residential floor plans and separation of living spaces. The sprawling floor plan splits the master suite from the guest bedrooms for greater privacy and there is still ample space for staff rooms, a fitness room and a study/library or more bedrooms if needed.
Enhancing this enviable open plan, quintessential loft features and esteemed address is the finessed talents of the incomparable French architect, Thierry Despont, whose contributions to the apartment's architecture and interior design have elevated it beyond its peers.
Each space in the apartment has been artfully considered and curated to maximize comfort, function and design aesthetics: from a brilliant billiards area in the midst of the massive living room, to intimate parlor sitting areas, a grand dining area across from the stainless steel Varenna kitchen and the most elegant of offices set in front of one of the grand arched windows off the master bedroom. This is, quite simply, the kind of loft that everyone imagines and desires, yet never finds.
140 Franklin Street is a boutique, 12-unit, full-service condominium with 24-hour doorman service.
