Famed Frenchie Philippe Starck has said he will retire from design within the next few years, but luckily for the prowling bachelor class of the Financial District, he's not going out without gifting the neighborhood a classy rental option. Dwell, the spiritual follow-up to his condo building/party palace of insanity at 15 Broad Street, made a splashy entrance on these very pages by hijacking the BeaverMobile. Now, some more information has trickled in regarding the building, courtesy of a Post roundup of new developments around town. Referred to as Dwell on Wall, the Moinian-developed 507-unit building at 95 Wall Street will have two apartment styles: "nature" and "classic." But no matter what theme one opts for, Swarovski chandeliers will come standard (phew!). Amenities include a 24-hour concierge, valet parking, gym and free breakfrast. Studios start at $2,665, 1BRs at $3,890 and 2BRs at $6,260. Those are some big numbers for the burgeoning FiDi, but Philippe Starck does not come cheap. The image printed with the story, the first we've seen of Dwell, shows a slightly cramped but uberstylish living space. Tenants will move in starting in May, so you'd better call up the leasing office now.
