Recently, the Financial District has become home to many new developments in Manhattan, but 180 Water Street is different. Rather than constructing an entirely new building, Metro Loft Developers took a classic this FiDi development and converted it into a luxury residential with a brand new, modern feel.

Developers Metro Loft paired with AKM Architects and designer Pentagram to bring 565 new luxury homes to the neighborhood. Before the conversion, this structure only stood 25 stories tall, but Metro Loft added seven more to make room for the buildings top-notch amenities.

180 Water Street offers studios to three-bedroom homes and penthouses, each with a different layout. The exterior of the building is comprised of glass, giving each home large, over-sized windows as well as high ceilings, and floors lined with white oak all throughout the apartments. The open gourmet kitchens are complete with custom white lacquer cabinets to match the floors giving the home a modern feel, as well as stainless steel appliances, and marble countertops. Bathrooms are fitted with sleek slate tile floors, white countertops, and double vanities with oversized mirrors.
