Knightsbridge Properties has released the first renderings for their twin duplex penthouses atop Tribeca’s 67 Franklin Street. Designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, the penthouses feature a unique cantilever that allows for the glass exterior doors to completely open up to the outside.

The smaller penthouse will total 3,800 square feet with four bedrooms and 1,530 square feet of outdoor space, while the larger one will total 4,560 square feet with five bedrooms and 1,430 square feet of outdoor space, according to the New York Times. The penthouses will be priced between $12 million and $15 million, Jourdan Krauss, the president of Knightsbridge, told the paper.

The lower floors of the 132-year-old cast-iron building will feature 11 duplex apartments, ranging from a 2,850-square-foot three-bedroom unit to a 4,890-square-foot five-bedroom unit, according to the Times. All apartments will boast double-height living rooms with ceilings of up to 25 feet, according to the newspaper. [NYT]  – Hiten Samtani
