The very handsome, Art Deco-style tower at 100 John Street in the Financial District was erected in 1931 as a 31-story office building and converted by Joseph Moinian in 1998 to an office building with a new residential low-rise entrance at 100 John Street.

It is known as the Renaissance and contains 221 residential units above the 13th floor. 

The building was originally designed by Springsteen & Goldhammer, which almost designed the very handsome Amalgamated Dwellings on Grand Street. 

Avinash Malholtra designed the conversion of this building.

Bottom Line

An impressive heap of terraced Art Deco details, this was once an office building with a nice, recessed entrance and now that entrance has been retained for the lower office floors but a glossy, pale-blue low-rise wing has been appended for a vaulted residential entrance for this mixed-use project.

Description

The building retains its two-story recessed entrance for its office tenants who now occupy only the lower 8 floors.

The residential tenants at on the top 23 floors of the building now have a nice vaulted lobby of their own in a pale blue, glassy, 4-story wing that has been attached to the building.

The building, which is also known as 20-24 Gold Street and 15-23 Platt Street, has seven setbacks and nearly 100 terraces.

Amenities

The building has a 24-hour concierge, a roof deck, a residents’ lounge, valet services, a garage and a health club.

Apartments

About 45 of the building’s studio apartments have home offices. Most of the other apartments are one-bedroom units and there are six two-bedroom apartments.

Apartment N on the 14th through the 26th floors is a studio unit with a 10-foot-long entry foyer that leads to a long hall and a 16-foot-wide home office in one direction and a 23-foot-long living/dining room next to an enclosed kitchen.

Apartment 1413 is a studio unit with a long entrance hall that leads past a pass-through kitchen to a 23-foot-long angled living/dining room.

Apartment 1716 is a studio unit with a long entrance fall that leads to a 22-foot-long living/dining room with a small terrace and an enclosed kitchen.

Apartment 1907 is a studio unit with a 17-foot-long living/dining room with an open kitchen and a terrace.

Apartment 2607 is a studio unit with a 21-foot-long, 6-sided living/dining room with an open, pass-through kitchen.

Apartment 2209 is a one-bedroom unit with a 16-foot-long living/dining room with an open, pass-through kitchen, a large terrace and an 11-foot-square home office.
