April 11, 2014- In a Bloomberg article, details emerged of the condo conversion plans for the historic Verizon building on West Street, across from Goldman Sachs and WTC.
““We’re doing plenty of two, three, four and five-bedrooms,” Ben Shaoul, president of Magnum, said on a walk-through of the 32-story Verizon building at 140 West St., where 166 condos will be built on the top 22 floors.
Magnum, which plans to start sales in September, envisions units ranging from 1,200 to 3,500 square feet (111 to 325 square meters) that emphasize larger living rooms and common spaces. Apartments at the tower, across from the almost-completed 1 World Trade Center, are expected to start at $2 million, he said.
Plans call for a pool, fitness center and yoga room, as well as a lounge and wine bar in the building’s landmarked marble lobby, where murals on the domed ceiling depict the progress of human communication from carrier pigeons to the telephone. Duplex penthouses will span the 31st and 32nd floors, which until recently housed office suites for Verizon executives, Shaoul said.”
