Like many of the residential apartment buildings in the neighborhood, 200 Water Street is a former office building that was converted to rentals. Uniquely, the building was first initially converted into an NYU dorm back in 1997 before being renovated, upgraded, and reconverted into luxury, market-rate rentals in 2009. In recent years the majority of residences at 200 Water have been renovated yet again as developer and owner Rockrose has strived to keep the property competitive in a sea of newer rental buildings.
Apartments at 200 Water Street are generally larger and more spacious than the average NYC rental apartment. They also get lots of sunlight thanks to the building’s design (Architects Emory Roth & Sons adhered to the principles of the International Style of design, setting the building back to ensure plenty of natural light). All of the apartments in the building have stainless steel appliances and oversized windows, many with stunning views of the nearby South Street Seaport and East River. Some apartments also feature walk-in closets and private terraces.
The building features a wonderful mix of amenities, the highlight being the roof deck which offers jaw-dropping 360-degree views of New York City. Other amenities include a tenant lounge equipped with gaming tables and a modern fitness center with cardio and strength training machines as well as free weights. Additionally, there's an on-site pharmacy and deli for your convenience, and the charming seaport district with its many restaurants and trendy boutiques is only steps from 200 Water Street’s front door.
