Live in the Building That Started the Whole 13th Street Transformation

The White Building was one of Tony Goldman's first projects on this stretch.

This unit in The White Building has some cool history to it. Located on South 12th Street in what we (or a lot of us) now call Midtown Village, the building itself dates back to 1867–giving it that old school warehouse-y look you see today. More recently though, it’s the starting point of Tony Goldman’s dramatic transformation of the 13th Street corridor. Thankfully, Goldman’s original moniker of B3 (Blocks Below Broad) fizzled, but the Midtown Village movement has stuck and it’s mostly due to his vision.

Unit 502 is a wonderful condo on the top floor with a modern, industrial-chic look. The large arched windows flood the space with natural light (plus city views) and the open design allows you to flow freely from living room to kitchen and even into the bedroom area. Beautiful Brazilian Cherry floors are found throughout and there’s a large storage room built above walk-in closet.

While the kitchen boasts high-end stainless steel appliances and Carrara marble counters, the bathroom is the must-see spot in this home. It’s decked out with a wide dual vanity with deep sinks and marble counter tops. The large shower is also a whirl pool tub and looks like the perfect place to relax after a long day at work.
