Located within the Tribeca South Historic District, 58 Reade Street was built in 1860 and designed in the Italianate style by architect Isaac F. Duckworth. Originally built as a store and loft building, in its first century it housed businesses for dry goods, oil cloths, belts, pocket books, and shoes. 58 Reade was developed into a luxury boutique residential condominium in 2001. For those who appreciate the fine craftsmanship and solid construction of a prewar building combined with an open floor plan and modern interior design, there is no better choice than the Penthouse at 58 Reade.
