After six years in residence, the in-demand downtown designer is selling the loft he purchased from fellow fashionista, former New York Times Style writer Holly Brubach (h/t Curbed). With the help of maverick decorator Ryan Korban, Wang renovated the classic warehouse-turned-co-op at 39 Worth Street with opulent-chic accents like black fur, zebra rugs and mirrored wall panels, and opened up walled spaces to return the loft its open-space roots.
The result, as far as lofts go, is a pretty well laid-out example, with creature comforts a busy design professional needs–plus luxurious finishes. Yet it doesn’t lose any of the open and adventurous character that defines a historic Tribeca loft space. The Parsons-grad-made-good purchased the unit for $2 million in 2010 and hopes to sell it for a $3.75 million.
At a spacious 2,550 square feet, the loft’s one bedroom is really just semantics. The 30-foot-by-85-foot home offers plenty of opportunity to create any number of spaces. Oversized mullioned windows bring in lots of light, and electric blinds keep a handle on privacy and shade. Restored tin ceilings are a reminder of the loft’s history while present-day industrial chic means a mix of ebony-stained wood floors and whitewashed brick walls. The apartment’s main living areas are divided by furnishings and decor into functional zones including a large living room, dining room and den area.
A huge, luxurious kitchen offers SubZero and Gaggenau appliances, sleek stainless steel cabinetry, luminous white marble counters and a substantial island to keep the workspace separate from the rest of the room.
Currently set up as a one-bedroom with a cavernous walk in dressing room befitting a fashion force majeure, there is plenty of space to create more bedrooms.
The loft’s two bathrooms are clad in white marble and white tiles; a large laundry and utility room holds a washer-dryer.
