Bring your architect to this rarely available high floor C Line loft in the historic Potter Building.
The expansive space with 3 exposures and 13' ceilings is the largest in the building at approximately 1850 square feet. 13 windows facing West, South and East offer direct City Hall Park views and a panorama of the surrounding iconic landmarks - City Hall, The Woolworth Building, St. Paul's Chapel, The Oculus, and the steeples of the Beekman Hotel. Currently configured as a 2 bed/1 bath, the layout lends itself to the easy addition of a 3rd bedroom and a 2nd bathroom.
The convenient location is just around the corner from the Spruce Street School, 3 short blocks from all major subway lines at Fulton Center, and close to world class shopping at Brookfield Place and Westfield World Trade Center. Head west into Tribeca, north into Soho, east towards the Seaport and south towards the heart of the Financial District.
Built in 1886, The Potter Building's elaborate red brick and terra cotta facade is a fusion of Queen Anne, Neo-Grec, Renaissance Revival, and Colonial Revival motifs. At 11 stories high, it is one of New York's most significant surviving tall office buildings of the period prior to the development of the skyscraper. It stands as a testament to the most advanced fireproofing methods then available. Once part of New York's celebrated Newspaper Row, it housed the editorial office of the New York Observer. Converted to residential co-ops in 1980, it was designated a New York City Landmark in 1996.
The lobby was updated in 2010, new elevators installed in 2012, the windows were replaced in 2015, and the hallways were just recently handsomely renovated. There's a beautifully landscaped common roof deck and pets are welcome.
This is an exceptional opportunity to create your dream loft.
