90 West Street

90 West Street is a luxury apartment rental building located in Manhattan’s Financial District. It was designed by Cass Gilbert in 1907, several years before he designed the magnificent Woolworth Building at 233 Broadway. The building originally boasted a top-floor establishment that billed itself as the highest restaurant in New York. In 1998, the building’s exterior was designated an architectural landmark by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. The building reopened in the spring of 2005 as a 410-unit rental apartment building, and its meticulous restoration earned it in 2006 a National Preservation Honor Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation¬†The restored building has a garden courtyard, a gym, a recreation room, central air-conditioning and a garage. The building has a doorman, and some ceilings are 14-feet-six-inches high. Some apartments have skylights.
