A new Look for a 35 story art deco tower...

The singer and Bassuk Organization has arranged a $92 million construction loan for 20 West Street, the former home of the Downtown Athletic club. This rendering shows new look for the 35 -story office tower after its conversion into luxery apartments by The Moinian Group.

Current state:



Brief history:

20 west Street-
Architects : Starret & Van Vleek, 1930

Extremely tall and narrow 35 story tower, 534 feet tall, each floor is dedicated to a different sporting event...for example the 18th floor boasts a regulation size boxing ring, an olympic size pool is located on the 12th floor..... a full basketball court on the 8th floor , etc..

the top 15 floors are dedicated to a 111 room hotel.

It looks nice, I agree, but I guess since they want to change it to a luxury residential building, they want to give it a more imposing feel :?

That's really cool! Too bad the usage is changing to 'just' another apartment tower.
