The Residences at the W New York Downtown at 123 Washington Street are located on the 23rd through the 56th floors of the luxury hotel in Lower Manhattan. 

The Residences include 159 unfurnished condominium apartments that have access to all the services of the 216-room hotel, which is located on the 6th through the 22nd floors.  Floors 23 through 30 contain 64 condominium apartments furnished by Louise Sunshine’s Sunshine Select Residences.    

The building was erected by The Moinian Group in 2010.  Starwood Hotels operates the hotel. 

The 57-story, sleek and slender tower was designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates and its Gwathmey Plaza has been designed by Thomas Balsey and is named after Charles Gwathmey, a partner in the architectural firm who died in 2011. 

 Graft Design of Berlin was the interior designer.

 This mixed-use tower is at the southern edge of the World Trade Center Memorial Site.

Bottom Line

The Residences at the W New York Downtown have spectacular views from the residents-only rooftop lounge of Lower Manhattan, the World Trade Center site, Battery Park City and the Financial District. They also have full access to the luxury hotel’s services, restaurants, spa and Whatever/Whenever 24-hour concierge service.

Description

The glossy sheen of this light-colored, elegant, rectilinear tower is as impressive as its beautiful proportions.  This model needs no high heels to proudly strut its stuff.  This is classic svelte and very fine Gwathmey modernity.

Amenities

The Residences at the W New York Downtown have a rooftop terrace, Whatever/Whenever 24-hour concierge service, housekeeping services, media screening room, SWEAT fitness center, a Digital Lounge with television, video game systems and wireless internet.  

The residents also have preferred dining reservations at the hotel’s The Living Lounge and Bar with its spectacular ceiling that looms like the ribcage of a whale and the BLT Bar & Grill Restaurant.

Apartments

All apartments have open kitchens with Italian white lacquer cabinetry, Subzero refrigerators, Miele gas cooktops, Corian countertops with glass backsplashes and concealed lighting.  

The apartments, which range in size from studios to two-bedrooms, also have washers and dryers. 

Residence A on floors 33 through 56 is a one-bedroom apartment with a 19-foot-long living/dining area and a 9-foot-long entrance gallery. 

Residence H on floors 34 through 56 are one-bedroom units with 9-foot-long entrance galleries. 

Residence F at the northeast corner of floors 48 through 56 are two-bedroom units with a 21-foot-long living/dining area.

Residence B at the northwest corner of floors 33 through 56 are two-bedroom units with an entry foyer and a 19-foot-long living/dining area.

Location

The building, which is also known as 4-12 Albany Street and 3-13 Carlisle Street, is just south of the World Trade Center Memorial Site and close to Wall Street as well as Battery Park City.
