Hip Apartment in Landmark TriBeCa Building
There's no shortage of stylish lofts in New York's trendy TriBeCa neighborhood, but this apartment at 140 Franklin Street has to be one of the coolest we've seen yet. The Romanesque Revival building dates back to 1887, when it was constructed by architect Albert Wagner for the Walton Company, a manufacturer of boxes and wrapping paper. In 2000, the building was converted to 14 luxurious condominiums, which brings us to today's stunning residence.

The apartment's fifth-floor location is arguably the best in the building. Why? Because of those gorgeous, arched windows that flood the apartment with light and frame views of the surrounding TriBeCa Historic District. Spanning an impressive 6,226 square feet of living space, the chic home seamlessly blends original details -- cast-iron columns and the aforementioned arched windows -- with modern additions like state-of-the-art Lutron lighting, a custom audio/video system with keypads in every room and a 150-bottle, temperature-controlled wine cave.
