From the library to the rooftop sunroom and private terrace with dazzling Hudson River views, loft lovers won’t want to change a thing in this perfect penthouse at 288 West Street. As 6sqft previously reported, actress Jennifer Connelly and British actor Paul Bettany bought the four-bedroom penthouse in celebrity-magnet Tribeca for just under $7,000,000 in 2008. Four years later the couple reportedly sold the home in an off-market sale for $8,495,000 when they decamped for the brownstones of Brooklyn. The 4,000-square-foot penthouse loft is back on the market, asking $12,000,000.

A permanent museum dedicated to immersive art experiences will open this summer in Lower Manhattan. Dubbed Hall des Lumières, the art center will take over the former Emigrant Industrial Saving Bank building across from City Hall and feature animated and glowing 30-foot displays of famous paintings. Developed by French museum operator Culturespaces and IMG, the center’s inaugural installation will be Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion, “a thematic journey through the golden, sensuous and revolutionary art of the Viennese painter,” according to a press release.

Asking $4,250,000, this duplex condo at 55 Vestry Street is a classic Tribeca loft with outdoor space on two floors and a flexible floor plan–if you’re willing to do a bit of work. Although it’s currently configured as a one-bedroom, the 2,029-square-foot loft was originally a spacious three-bedroom apartment; it can be easily returned to that layout using the already-existing floor plans.

The landmarked 32-story building at 100 Barclay Street–formerly known as the Barclay-Vesey Building–is considered by some to be the world’s first Art Deco skyscraper. Designed by notable Jazz Age architect Ralph Walker, the building first opened in 1927; the tower’s upper floors were reimagined as luxurious loft residences in 2015. The grandest of these, unit 20B, is a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home that spans 3,665 square feet, currently on the market for $8.8 million.
