30 Park Place Vs. The Baccarat Hotel and Residences
JULY 8, 2014
Two new headline-stealing towers that combine amenity-packed residences and world-class hotel accommodations ascend skyward amid the city’s bustling commercial hubs.
Though the residences at the Financial District’s 30 Park Place are scheduled to be completed in 2016, the 82-story mixed use tower–rising to 926 feet, considerably taller than the iconic Woolworth Building nearby–recently launched sales for a number of its condominium units, with at least 20 already in contract.

Apartments feature state-of-the-art “smart home” systems like ceiling-hung four-pipe fan coil heating and cooling with dedicated zones and pre-wiring for home automation.
Apartments currently on the market at 30 Park Place include #40E, a 1,794 square-foot three-bedroom residence listed at $4,750.000.
