Luxuriously updated for gracious 21st-Century living, the expansive open layouts perfectly harmonize the best of both modern loft and prewar aesthetics with no detail left unconsidered. Each residence enjoys sweeping cinematic views, while three offer the rare privilege of deep, set-back outdoor terraces.
