The former home of the JP Morgan Bank headquarters, 15 Broad, known as Downtown by Philippe Starck, was the forerunner of the downtown transformation, and the first luxury high-rise condominium on the block. Internationally-acclaimed Starck, along with architect Ismael Leyva and developer A.I. Boymelgreen, worked wonders in turning the epicenter of American finance at the intersection of Broad and Wall Streets into a luxurious residential paradise. Converted in 2006, this 42-story landmark tower located directly across from the NY Stock Exchange offers 382 stylish apartments with 160 layouts to suit any resident’s needs.
Innovatively-designed apartments offer abundant light shining in through new oversized windows. South-facing apartments showcase river views, while those facing north overlook rich Gotham architecture. Other distinctive features include average 11′ ceiling heights; 4′ maple hardwood floors; a Bosch washer/dryer; chef’s kitchens adorned with premium stainless appliances (Bosch gas cooktop and convection oven, Jenn-Air refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, custom Hansgrohe faucets by Starck, stainless steel sink with a garbage disposal) and chic Starck-designed lighting; plus sleek baths finished in 16″” honed Thassos marble with a Duravit soaking tub, Hansgrohe shower fixtures, special white vessel sinks with Thassos marble countertops.
15 Broad affords residents an impressive list of white-glove amenities such as a highly- attentive doorman, staff and concierge; dry cleaning, laundry and housekeeping services; swimming and reflecting pools; a fully-equipped fitness center; yoga/ballet room; basketball and squash courts; bowling alley; business center; sports lounge; recreation and children’s rooms; and an incredible 5000-sf roof terrace with views of The New York Stock Exchange.
