This unique duplex apartment is located on the 8th and 9th floor of 145 Nassau Street in the rarely available 'A' line. Built in 1886, this Queen Ann-style landmark is regarded by most to be the pre-eminent pre-war co-op building Downtown, perfectly perched on the South side of Park Row and Beekman Street, one of the most desirable blocks in all of the Seaport District and Fulton area.
With breathtaking views of City Hall Park from all windows this 8th and 9th floor duplex boasts lofty 10+ foot and 13+ foot ceilings and abounding prewar charm. The high ceilings and beautiful light throughout the whole loft combined with the original columns give testimony to the building's long history as one of downtown's first iron-framed office buildings before it was converted to apartments in 1981.
The entry level boasts an oversized living/dining space ideal for elegant entertaining, an open and very efficient kitchen with granite counter tops, Sub Zero/Miele stainless steel appliances and a recently renovated bathroom also with a granite countertop. An open wooden staircase above a walk-in closet and pantry leads you upstairs (also accessible via the elevators) to the sleeping quarters/home office area ensuring maximum privacy. A second recently-renovated bathroom with Silestone countertops as well as a Miele washer and dryer are on the ninth floor.
The open floorplan of this duplex apartment is currently configured as a 2 bedroom with 2 bathrooms but can be easily converted into 3 bedrooms.
Historic architecture with superbly proportioned rooms is seamlessly infused with every modern convenience.

Residents of The Potter Building at 145 Nassau Street enjoy a magnificent landscaped roof-deck with panoramic views, new windows, lobby, hallways, elevators, laundry room, bicycle storage, basement storage lockers and are part of a very financially stable, friendly co-op community.
The Potter Building was built in 1886 in the Beaux-Art style and was designated a New York City Landmark in 1996. The elaborate terra cotta-and-brick facade played an important part in the development of this type of building and is one of the most beautiful facades in Manhattan. It was the first fireproof building in Manhattan reinforced with 4 feet thick foundation walls and 18.5 inch thick interior walls. This makes for a very quiet and private residence.
