Cast Iron House, Tribeca Building

West Chelsea Arts District Shutter house, architect Shigeru Ban does amazing expansive layouts for The Cast Iron House in Tribeca.  If you are an entertainer and appreciate true loft living with a blend of the outdoors in your home the Cast Iron House is a perfect home for you!  Shigeru redesigned the interior and created the penthouse floors and blended modern design beautifully in an 1882 Cast Iron building that is truly inspirational.

“Being a great admirer of architecture,” said Jourdan Krauss, the president of Knightsbridge Properties, the developer, “I thought it was my opportunity to bring in a contemporary architect that had an avant-garde vision for converting this historic building.” NYT

Developers will often give personal invitations to a handful of select brokers and we take advantage of that because it’s an early introduction into properties that aren’t available to the public at large. Let us get you VIP access to the up and coming new developments in Tribeca!
