About half of the 74 condominium apartments have been sold at 59 John Street on the northwest corner of William Street in the Financial District. Sales started in late September.

The building was formerly a 9-story office building and Broadway Management Co., Inc., added three floors with terraced penthouse units to it in the conversion, which is expected to be completed this summer.

The beige-brick building has a one-story rusticated red-brick base and is one block north of the Federal Reserve Bank Building and it is across Pine Street from Zeytma, one of downtown's most colorful gourmet food stores and restaurants.

The building will have a 24-hour concierge and fitness center and its large lobby will have a media lounge that will face on a large garden.

Andr?Escobar has designed the interior spaces and bathrooms will feature handsome blue-green glass walls, soaking tubs with controls mounted on the side, and large stainless steel sink bowls mounted above cabinets and beneath very broad mirrors. Kitchens will have very large black granite counters.

Remaining two-bedroom units plus home office units with two bathrooms start at about $1,195,000 and three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath, corner units with 1,651 square feet and a foyer leaded to a long, angled gallery start at about $1,300,000.

Broadway Management is also developing Sutton 57 in midtown.
