Cast Iron House

The spectacular Cast Iron House is a new condominium project in Tribeca, New York. Located at 67 Franklin Street, the breathtaking restoration was designed by acclaimed Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, and comprises 11 duplex residences and two mind-blowing twin duplex penthouses atop the 132-year-old cast-iron beauty in Tribeca. Each residence stands alone as a singular creation by Ban, all of which have cathedral-style double-height ceilings and private elevator entry, as for the penthouses, one will have 4 bedrooms and total 3,800 sf, while the other will have 5 bedrooms and 4,560 sf. Both have glass walls that can be completely opened, creating an uninterrupted expanse between the interiors and the surrounding terraces, and making them appear from street level as though they are floating above the building.
