5 Franklin Place will blend the personalities of Tribeca and Soho at one address. Residents access this 20 storey, 53-unit building from a courtyard facing Franklin Place, the cobblestone back alley for which the name of this project is derived. The building features tall two-storey windows that allow natural light to illuminate the lofty interiors of the units. The interior design concept was to maximize the amount of height in each space, particularly on the upper floors. Various types of lounge furniture are on the terrace, with a pool area that has the versatility to act as a setting for a family outing during the day, but still be used for a social mixer under the bright Manhattan night sky.
