The classic limestone and granite pinstripes on the exterior envelope the newly renovated residences inside to create a timeless essence of old New York and modern downtown living. Find your new home in one of these Financial District apartments… on par with some of the finest New York City condominiums.

Building Originally built in 1933, 99 John was designed by Shreve, Lamb & Harmo, the architects resposnible for The Empire State Building.  The resemblance is clear, from the classic limestone and granite façade to the tiered setbacks on higher floors.  The old world construction features solid 16+ inch concrete walls, classic architectural details and unique floor plan layouts. Although the building is historic, it has been fully renovated and updated in keeping with modern city living. 99 John Deco Lofts is a fantastic combination of old and new.

And the Winner is ???

A reader writes, “It would be interesting if you guys did a reader survey on which NYC apartments have the most attractive women. I know it sounds silly, but somehow my friends and I had this discussion, and consensus seems to be that 2 Gold and Rivergate have tons of eye candy. I was also impressed with the quality of women at luxury condos like the Millennium in Battery Park City, 15 Broad, and Trump World Tower.” Great idea! But no love for the fellas? Folks, your suggestions for buildings with the hottest tenants (male and/or female) in the comments, please. Perhaps we can set up some sort of pageant. [CurbedWire Inbox]

Congrats to Financial District luxury-rental megatower 2 Gold Street for being named by the Curbed readership as the Manhattan building with the best-looking tenants. Rockrose’s gift to sunbathing 20somethings (and the dudes/dude-ettes who love them) beat out strong challenges from rental buildings like Soho Court, 88 Leonard Street, and Rivergate, and condo buildings such as The Orion and 15 Broad Street. See you on the roof deck, brahs!
