The façade of the South Star conjures up images of New York's iconic past. The skyscraper looks like buildings that dotted the metropolis years ago. The design of the building at 80 John Street recalls the art-deco look of years past. South Star is a conversion of the old Travelers Insurance building, and is just one of many condominium conversions that are occurring in the Financial District.
Every last detail at the South Star has been considered. Ceilings that reach close to 11 feet and large double-pane windows make the condos at the South Star very spacious. Brazilian cherry flooring covers most the the space in the open floor plan apartments. The kitchens have matching Brazilian cherry cabinets and are covered in chrome and stainless steel appliances from Sub-Zero and Bosch. Top-of-the-line finishings are easily distinguishable in the bathrooms at the South Star.
A 24-hour doorman at the South Star welcomes residents into a concierge attended lobby. A state-of-the-art fitness center designed by Complete Body Development is located on site. Residents of the South Star also get privileges to use Hotel Gansevoort, including its uber-trendy rooftop bar. Its location on a quiet street in the Financial District is another benefit of the South Star. For those looking for a luxury living experience in FiDi, the South Star undoubtedly delivers.
