Description

Dramatic Duplex 2 bedroom/2 bath at The Police Building Fabulous 2BR/2BA duplex at downtown's iconic Police Building. Soaring ceilings expand tremendous room dimensions. Bright natural sunlight pours through double height, arched windows overlooking a charming and quiet, Parisian-like lane.

The living/dining area is at once grand and intimate: a large space with towering 15 ft ceilings enhanced by a warm wall of built-in bookshelves. A spiral stair leads to a very large windowed second bedroom with its own private marbled bathroom. This space can also be the perfect home office.

The huge first floor master bedroom, with 15ft ceilings and double height windows is both warm and inviting, its end walls lined with bookshelves and featuring a marbled master bath with deep soaking tub. A sparkling windowed kitchen includes sub-zero refrigerator; Bosch range; dishwasher and disposal. Central heating/air-conditioning, an in-unit laundry, abundant closet space and even a storage unit in the building make this a most comfortable home. The Police Building is one of Manhattan's most revered residential properties.

Recognized by its Edwardian Baroque style, Beaux-Arts design, and classic dome, the building was designed by the firm of Hoppin & Koen. Built between 1905 and 1909, after the consolidation of the City's five boroughs, the building served as the headquarters of the New York City Police Department until 1973. The Police Building was designated a New York City Landmark in 1978 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

It was converted to a luxury residential cooperative in 1988. The Police Building welcomes residents and guests with one of the City's most remarkable lobbies. Its white-glove staff provides the highest level of gracious service and security. And, a fully-equipped gym and lovely garden offer the ultimate in fine living. The 240 Centre Street address is conveniently located at the crossroads of SoHo, Tribeca, and NoLita; close to the burgeoning neighborhoods of FiDi, Seaport and Kenmare Square; and affording all of the exciting shopping, dining, cultural and nightlife experiences that downtown Manhattan has to offer. Pets and pied-a-terre permitted subject to Board approval, as is max 70% financing. The Police Building, Apartment 2J is the quintessential sophisticated New York home.
