FiDi Luxe Living is Soaring to New Heights

Facade of 5 Beekman Street 

A new, supertall, residential tower is heading for Lower Manhattan. Perhaps befitting of its Financial District destination, this CetraRuddy-designed skyscraper will boast an ornate gold facade. Renderings reveal a Pizzarotti Group and Madison Equities developed tower to be built at 45 Broad Street–it will reportedly climb 86 stories and house 245 luxury residences. The project is slated to sometime this year, with a projected completion date in 2018; it will add to the new luxe residential projects already taking the Financial District by storm.

5 Beekman Street- Temple Court is an ornate, Victorian circa 1900 high rise that’s been a Financial District landmark for more than a century. Its lavish interior space features an atrium topped with a pyramidal skylight. In 2014, architect firm, Gerner, Kronick + Valcarcel, converted neighboring 5 Beekman Street into luxury residences and incorporated the Victorian building into the project, resulting in a seriously breathtaking marriage of classic and modern architecture. 5 Beekman boasts a sleek, luxurious lobby leading to 85 exemplary residences, each of which has floor to ceiling, oversized windows, offering breathtaking city and river views. The state-of-the-art kitchens feature limestone countertops and stainless steel appliances. The spa-inspired baths have double vanities and deep soaking tubs. Washer/dryers and dishwashers come standard.

The exclusive amenities package at 5 Beekman includes a full service doorman, stunning Victorian-era lounge complete with wrought iron balconies and bespoke furnishings, an on-site fitness center, and a landscaped rooftop terrace ideal for curated events and casual get togethers alike. And lest you worry about the abundance of fine dinings options, restaurateur (and longtime neighborhood game-changer), Keith McNally and Top Chef judge, Tom Colicchio have just opened restaurants in the building.

2-bedrooms begin at  $2,825,000.
