In 2010, fashion designer Alexander Wang bought his Tribeca loft at 39 Worth Street for $2 million from former New York Times Style writer Holly Brubach. He then undertook a gut renovation with decorator Ryan Korban that resulted in an “industrial chic” space that embodies his love of black and his line’s signature minimalist, urban vibes, as seen through details like a furry furniture, zebra rugs, leather pillows, and mirrored wall panels. Wang listed the 2,550-square-foot home for $3.75 million in May, and the Observer now reports that it’s gone into contract for $3.5 million.
The home retains historic loft details like oversized mullioned windows, 12-foot ceilings, and restored tin ceilings, but also features more contemporary takes on the warehouse style such as ebony-stained wood floors and whitewashed brick walls. The 30′ x 85′ main space is divided into three functional zones–a large living room, dining room, and a den. There’s also an open kitchen, which has stainless steel cabinetry, white marble counters, and a large island.
Though the home is currently configured as a one-bedroom (with, fittingly, a giant walk-in dressing room), there is plenty of space to create more bedrooms. There’s also two white marble bathrooms and a large laundry and utility room with a washer-dryer.
As the Observer explains, Wang stepped down as the creative director of Balenciaga in 2015, and recently announced that he’d be taking over as CEO of his namesake line. His former position required him to split his time between New York and Paris, so perhaps now he’s looking for larger digs in NYC.
