“Design Icon: Andres Escobar”

Great Places to live in New York

A leader in cutting-edge interior design in Montreal, Toronto, Europe and Asia, Andres Escobar is bringing his unique sensibility to residential development in the New York area.

At 58 John Street, in Manhattan’s financial district, Five Nine John Lofts is another Escobar project. The building features generously sized one- and two bedrooms lofts with home offices and three-bedroom lofts with 10-foot ceilings, oversize windows and superb amenities.
