Greenwich Club, 88 Greenwich Street

Between Rector Street & Morris Street

Carter Horsley
Review by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of

This impressive, 37-story, Art Deco-Style skyscraper at 88 Greenwich Street at the southwest corner of Rector Street was erected as an office building in 1930 and designed by Lafayette A. Goldstone. 

It was converted to a rental apartment building in 2000 by Worldwide Holdings Corporation and was bought for about $195 million in 2005 by a partnership between Joseph Sitt and Andrew Heilberger, the founder of Citi-Habitats, which converted it in 2007 to a residential designer condominium building. 

It has 458 apartments and is close to Trinity Church and Wall Street. Its location is immersed in grocery stores, restaurants, and retail including Mortons, Capital Grill, Le District, Bobby Vans, Harry's Cafe, Financier Patisserie, Variety Market, Whole Foods, Century 21, Tiffany, Hermes, Bottega Veneta, and so much more! The South Street Seaport, Brookfield Place, and Oculus are a short walk away, as are many subway lines and the Wall Street Heliport.

The building, which also has the address of 13 Rector Street, is now known as Greenwich Club Residences. 

The developers are Buttonwood Real Estate, of which Mr. Heilberger is president, and Thor Equities. 

Ismael Leyva was the architect for the conversion and McCartan was the design architect.

Bottom Line

A prominent Art Deco-style tower on the Lower Manhattan skyline, this full-service apartment building has many small apartments and excellent views.


The building has a beige masonry façade with green, beige, yellow and brown terracotta accents highlighting several setbacks.  

The façade also has several bands of red brick to add visual interest.  

The building has a two-story travertine base and black granite. 

Its entrance marquee is flanked by wall flagpoles and the lobby has a grotto water fountain, walnut and rosewood paneled walls and chocolate-colored marble floors and a cafe.


The building has a concierge, valet service, maid service, complimentary breakfast, a library with a grand piano and fireplace, a billiards lounge, a "Harbour Room" for residents with a dining room, a gym, a "sky deck" and a courtyard with a wall of woven foliage.


Residents can choose from three apartment designs: Hudson, which has teak kitchen cabinetry with Siberian marble countertops and Italian Vanilla marble countertops and Mayorca limestone bathroom flooring; The Greenwich, which has white oak kitchen cabinetry, Pietra Carnico lava stone countertops, Mont Blanc glass composite countertops in the baths, which have Sierra Negra lava stone floors; and The Exchange, which has American walnut kitchen cabinetry, Mont Blanc glass composite kitchen countertops and the baths have Himalayan Silk marble countertops and Basalto di Pompei lava stone floors.  

All bathrooms have overhead rain showers and Kohler soaking tubs. 

Apartments have high ceilings, Sub-Zero refrigerators, Fisher & Paykel dishwashers, and Viking ranges, individual climate control, and an in-wall I-Pod port wired to kitchen and bathroom ceiling speakers. 

Each apartment entrance has an East Indian rosewood surround, hanging wall sconce and custom designed doorplate.  

Studio apartments range in size from about 540 to 606 square feet.  One bedroom units are about 778 square feet.  Two bedrooms are about 1,122 square feet. 

Apartment 1901 has a 14-foot-wide entry foyer that leads to a 24-foot-long living room with an open kitchen with an island and a 14-foot-long dining area.  The three-bedroom unit has a 19-foot-long terrace. 

Apartment 1304 is a two-bedroom unit that has a 24-foot-long great room with an enclosed kitchen. 

Apartment 2106 is a one-bedroom unit that has a entry foyer opposite the 7-foot-square, pass-through kitchen that leads to a 17-foot-long living room with a 24-foot-long, 12-sided balcony. 

Apartment 1116 is a studio unit that has a 19-foot-long living room and an enclosed kitchen.  A November 21, 1999 article in The New York Times about the building noted that “some people dislike this floor plan – it’s dark as a mushroom cave in the back – but developers tout it because the apartments generally have more space.  They label the back area a home office.”
