80 John Street | Financial District

The Financial District conjures up images of sleek buildings, modern and fashionable, and the South Star at 80 John Street fits that image to the tee. Billed as Downtown’s Smartest Buy, the luxury apartments being offered for sale at the South Star have several pre-war characteristics but are, at its essence, contemporary and comfortable homes right in the middle of New York City’s business districts. With the signature style of architect Stephen Jacobs and interior designer Andi Pepper, the South Star condominiums certainly don’t disappoint when checking out their luxury lifestyle factor.

Built in 1927, the South Star retains several touches of a classic, bygone era with the high ceilings, large windows and Brazilian hardwood floors in these apartments evoking a sense of space and expansiveness in these magnificent homes. The kitchens are similarly adorned with cherry cabinets, granite countertops, and a range of stainless steel appliances with brans like Sub Zero, Bosch and GE. No less stunning are the bathrooms, with imported tiles covering the floors and ceilings and beautiful interior designs. Simply put, these homes are just amazing both to look at, and to live in.

The amenities at the South Star include a concierge in the lobby—a beautiful designed lobby that, like the rest of this building, is both stunning and awesome. And of course, we have to come back to the South Star’s location. This is a bustling neighborhood, with so many of New York City’s most famous and cherished attractions all in the vicinity of the Financial District. A lot of transportation options are nearby, thereby making sure you can make easy commutes to the rest of the city. Rest assured that the South Star condominiums are made for the best kind of living possible in Manhattan.
