Electronic music maker Moby has just sold off his “tiny” penthouse at 262 Mott Street in Nolita. Moby bought the home for a mere $215,750 back in 1996 and managed to make quite a bit of money with the recent sale, turning a profit of about $1.5 million after taxes (we guess the artist is now eating crow). The 950-square-foot, 1BR/1BA home is covered with large vaulted skylights and also boasts exposed brick walls, a sleeper mezzanine loft and a private 875-square-foot garden terrace. The listing was held by Corcoran’s Julie Pham.

Former SNL star Kristen Wiig has just sold her Soho Loft for $2.675 million. 476 Broadway Apt. 10-M sits on the 10th floor of a pre-war building in the coveted Soho/Nolita area. Resting a good 4 or 5 floors above its surrounding buildings, this apartment gets tons of light, and its large windows provide unobstructed city views, including One World Trade Center and City Hall. The kitchen features top of the line appliances with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Waterstone Filtration System.
When you look at these New York buildings, it’s hard to imagine there’s space for a 7,000-square-foot loft inside. Well, the former home of Justin and Nicole Ehrlich is one of those spaces. 20 Greene Street #6A is definitely deserving of an Academy award with its dramatic tall ceilings and oversized windows. And it just sold to the tune of $14.5 million. This Soho loft, listed by Douglas Elliman, doesn’t do anything halfway. Its giant living room is large enough to be its own apartment, for starters.
Alicia Keys hired a crane when she moved out; Lenny Kravitz reportedly liked to show off his abs to his neighbors; Courtney Love allegedly had a little too much fun in the lobby — this is just some of the gossip from the former rich-and-famous tenants of 30 Crosby Street. In recent years, though, the residents have shifted from A-list celebrities to “everyday millionaires”, and instead of Grammy-winning singers and hard-partying actresses, the Nolita building is now home to rich guys like the recent buyer of unit 3B, Justin Leverenz, Director of Emerging Market Equities at Oppenheimer, who purchased the apartment for $7.8 million, according to city records filed yesterday afternoon. The seller was music industry executive Daniel Pelson who paid $2.55 million for the home in 2001. Mr. Pelson listed the property through Town Residential’s Tinnie Sassano.
What Mr. Leverenz acquired is a 4,164-square-foot, 3BR/3BA loft full of original historic details, including 19th century rough-hewn wooden columns, pinewood flooring, and exposed brick walls, mixed with contemporary additions like an Italian limestone wood-burning fireplace and a sleek, retro kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances and slab marble countertops.
Life in Soho should be a perfect blend of comfortable living and lively entertainment. Well, this beautiful 3,167 square foot loft at 104 Wooster Street understands that perfectly. That’s why it’s fully equipped with a spacious great room, currently sectioned off into smaller seating areas. Now, you can have a conversation with a few friends while the kids play safely in another corner of the room. Or maybe you prefer to float freely through a sea of guests at the awesome parties you’ll throw. Either way, apartment #2S is ready to accommodate you.
Not all rooftop gardens are created equal, especially when it’s an award-winning green space perched high above Little Italy.
