The Financial District, sometimes referred to as FiDi, is one of Manhattan’s fastest-growing residential neighborhoods. Over the past decade, new luxury condo developments, parks and retail and shopping venues have sprung up, changing the physical landscape of what was once mainly a hub for financial powerhouses.

Five Nine Johns Lofts at 59 John Street is one such luxury condo development that was once an office building built in the 1900s. Conversion to condos began in 2004 and the residences were completed in 2007. The facade is brick and was repointed, windows were changed to become oversized and four floors were added to the now nine-story building, with a 6,000 square foot retail base, to accommodate the 73 studio to three-bedroom luxury units within.

Architect Karl Fisher along with international designer Andres Escobar wanted to bring modern sophistication to the lobby, shared spaces and interiors. The result is a very popular home for busy Manhattanites and families that want to live in this thriving Lower Manhattan neighborhood that has experienced such exponential growth, upping real estate values considerably.

The boutique building’s lobby is minimal with marble floors, wood walls and a reflecting pool. Standard in the units themselves are top-of-the-line appliances in the gourmet kitchens, hardwood floors, high ceilings and large windows. Baths are marble with double vanities of glass and wood, stainless steel sinks, oversized mirrors, deep soaking tubs and separate glassed showers. Larger units have fireplaces, glassed balconies, home offices and built-in wine coolers.

Common areas include a roofdeck with grilling area, fitness center, media room and resident lounge and a Zen-like tranquility garden off the lobby. An upscale grocer, Jubilee Marketplace, is located across the street and residents can stroll to Battery Park, South Seaport’s entertainment, shopping and restaurants and the Memorial Park at the World Trade Center.

Five Nine John Lofts is upscale living near Wall Street and steps away from public transportation and some of Manhattan’s most desirable entertainment, dining and neighborhood venues.
