49 Chambers, Tribeca's glamorous new condominium conversion by Chetrit Group, has released photos inside their luxury residences which are located inside a former bank. A complete restoration of the landmark building is now underway led by architecture firm Woods Bagot. The restoration includes restoring its ornate facade, intricate carvings, cornices, friezes and the incredible beehive motif found throughout as well as the soaring triple-height banking hall, which will eventually operate as an event space. 49 Chambers is located at 49 Chambers Street in Tribeca, and is one of the most significant examples of New York's ornate Beaux-Arts architecture of the early 20th Century where it is uniquely positioned along City Hall Park, amongst other historic Beaux-Arts landmarks. The Beaux-Arts landmark was designed by Raymond F. Almirall and was built for the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank originally completed 1912 and the largest banking building at the time.
When finished, the 17-story building will feature just 99 oversized condominium residences starting at approximately 1,000 SF and ranging from 1 to 3 bedroom floorplans with several residences offering additional studies. Many of the residences, which sit atop the banking hall and begin high above street level, will offer treetop and park views. Sales at 49 Chambers launched in April of 2017, with prices starting at approximately $1,955,000. The Marketing Directors is the exclusive sales and marketing agent for 49 Chambers.
Interior design is being overseen by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, with warm and earthy tones and accents in bronze, metal and mirror to embrace and evoke the old glamour of the landmark. Amenities include a residents’ lounge designed for formal entertaining and relaxed get-togethers that features a dining area, pool table, library and separate catering kitchen; an up-lit mosaic-tiled swimming pool beneath a curved ceiling; a hammam with adjacent steam room and sauna; a fitness center with yoga studio and locker rooms; children’s playroom inspired by City Hall Park as well as a separate tween lounge for older children; screening room; virtual golf room; available bicycle and private storage. A rooftop park features landscape design by M. Paul Friedberg & Partners framed by the carved limestone balustrades and Beaux-Arts ornamentation of the landmark. The rooftop park features a lush lawn, a planted garden, living green walls, multiple seating areas with chaise lounges and cabana furniture and a covered dining area with an outdoor kitchen and grill. The southern view from the rooftop reveals a panorama of City Hall Park, the Woolworth Building, and the World Trade Center.
