Good architecture and craftmanship are timeless, and few projects embody this more than the conversion and rehabilitation of 53 White Street , a sumptuous cast-iron building on one of Tribeca's storied blocks.

The five-story building looks largely the same as it did when it was constructed as a store and loft building in 1857. According to the Tribeca East Historic District designation report, several buildings on White Street were demolished in the late 1920s when Church Street was widened and Sixth Avenue was extended southward. Thankfully, 53 White Street was not one of them, and in 1992 was protected in perpetuity in one of the neighborhoods several historic districts.

One hundred and sixty years since it was constructed, local developer DAB Investments secured Landmarks Preservation Commission approval for the exterior restoration of the building and the addition of a discreet two-story penthouse. While the original fire escapes were allowed to come down, the Italian Tuckahoe marble facade, columns, and cornices now appear pristine. The double-hung wood windows have also been replaced with respectful modern alternatives.

Finally finished and diving into its next chapter as a high-end residential building, the last of its seven opulent condominiums is for sale. To that end, we take a look at this highly crafted downtown affair that may serve as a precedent for pre-war conversions to come.

“The side streets of the district extending between Broadway and Church Street, which are filled with nineteenth-century store and loft buildings, form exceptionally strong streetscapes” - Tribeca East Historic District designation report
