In 1996, 20 Exchange Place was officially designated as a New York City landmark. The building stands a slender 57 stories tall. The façade is notably elegant and highlights its 1929 design. With its marble hallways, striking lobby, and stone statuary the building lives up to its reputation as a luxury residence.
Each apartment has been outfitted using a more contemporary design aesthetic so as to incorporate a variety of modern amenities. The kitchens feature top-of- the-line stainless steel appliances, custom-crafted lacquer cabinetry, and granite countertops. The bathrooms feature custom sinks, vanities, deep tubs, and have marble flooring. The units also have hardwood floors, high ceilings, and oversized windows throughout. Each has a stackable washer/dryer combination, spacious closets, and individually-controlled heating and cooling units.
The property supplies a more than generous wealth of amenities, even beyond those usually found in a luxury building in Manhattan. In addition to the standard 24-hour attended lobby with doorman and concierge, hotel, laundry, maid, and valet services are all available. The building is equipped with a high-speed internet connection, parking spaces, additional storage space, a landscaped roof deck, fitness center, lounge, and billiards and business rooms. Pets are welcomed.
Very near the tip of Manhattan in the heart of the financial district, the area in which this building resides is replete with fascinating places to visit, including Battery Park with its breathtaking river views and delightful yellow water taxis traveling back and forth, Bowling Green park with its proximity to the Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian, and in the opposite direction, the South Street Seaport with its own museum, shops and eateries, and ship displays. Almost all the different subway lines converge here, so you can save the wear and tear on your car and travel light to most points and destinations anywhere in Manhattan and beyond.
