Review of 10 Barclay Street by Carter Horsley

This 56-story, mid-block, rental apartment building was erected in 2005 directly across the street from the mid-rise portion of the great Woolworth building that is one of the icons of the city and overlooks City Hall Park.

This tower was erected by Glenwood Management, one of the city's largest developers of luxury rental towers and was designed by Costas Kondylis.

It has 441 apartments.

It is a few blocks to the north and east of Ground Zero and is very convenient to public transportation, TriBeCa and the Financial District.

The building has a 24-hour doorman, and its public spaces have been designed by John Saladino and include a three-story colonnade and main entrance with limestone columns and walls and statuary Roman fenestrated grilles and two Rojo Alicante marble fountains and stone gargoyles handcarved in Italy.

The lobby is barrel vaulted and has Aquamarina marble floors with mosaic stone borders and French chiseled limestone walls and a central area with seating areas of Japanese Tamo and teak.

The building has spectacular views.

In 2007, Larry Silverstein announced that Robert A. M. Stern was designing a very tall mixed-used tower with hotel rooms and apartments just to the west of the Woolworth Tower that is likely to partially obstruct some northern vistas from this building.
