The 15-story H-shaped Beaux Arts building, between Elk Street and Broadway, was erected in 1912 and originally home to the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank. Designed by architect Raymond Almirall, its exterior and first floor interior were designated landmarks in 1985, according to New York YIMBY.

Today, 49 Chambers includes 99 luxury condos, with available units ranging from $1.7 million from a one-bedroom to $7.3 million for a four-bedroom, according to the property’s website.

The property also includes a private, landscaped rooftop park, with a cocktail lounge, an outdoor kitchen, a sun deck and a garden terrace. The rooftop, looking South, boasts views of City Hall Park, The Woolworth Building and One World Trade Center.
