Review of 155 Franklin Street by Carter Horsley

This very handsome, 6-story building at 155 Franklin Street between Varick and Hudson Streets in TriBeCa was designed at the Sugarloaf Warehouse by George W. DaCunha with a neo-Grec style façade in 1882 and renovated in 1902 by Franklin Baylies. 

It was converted to 10 condominium apartments in the 1990s by Christopher Clark who added a penthouse that he later sold with the two apartments below it to a single owner in 2008.
