    Rather underwhelming compared to the magnificent exterior. With all the new wall-to-wall windowed buildings uptown, I wonder if this will be a shoe-in.


    Ben Shaoul's Verizon Tower Conversion Starts at $3.2 Million

    April 27, 2015, by Jeremiah Budin



    Name: Ralph Walker Tribeca
    Address: 100 Barclay Street
    Developer: Magnum Real Estate Group & CIM Group
    Architect: Ismael Leyva Architects
    Interiors: Champalimaud & GRADE
    Prices: $3.2 million to $11.5 million
    Size: 31 stories, 161 units
    Sales & Marketing: Douglas Elliman Development Marketing

    100 Barclay Street represents something of a departure for developer Ben Shaoul, primarily known for bullying senior citizens out of their rent-stabilized homes in the East Village, in that it's quite a bit more fancy and expensive than his other projects, and he hasn't had to Sledgehammer anyone in the process. Units in the converted Verizon Tower, designed in the late 1920s by famed architect Ralph Walker and now renamed Ralph Walker Tribeca, just hit the market with prices ranging from $3.2 million for a two-bedroom to $11.5 million for a four-bedroom. So far, 15 of the building's 161 units have been listed.

    The interiors are built out perfectly. The large - but not floor to ceiling - windows are very nicely proportioned for creating a strong sense of shelter/enclosure away from the mean streets of the urban environment: yet large enough for ample natural light and views. Also, I like basic flat walls ceilings without a lot of architectural adornments: such as, wainscoting. Tray ceilings, crown moulding and built-in wall units. This type of interior space makes for a good canvas on which to apply paint colors, art work, fine furnishings and window treatments.

    I hope we get an opportunity to see some of the occupied interiors once the new owners start to move in the apartments.
