Bjarke Ingels Picks Up $4M Dumbo Penthouse with Views of 2 World Trade Center
When we have something to celebrate we usually do it with a glass of wine and some cake, but starchitect Bjarke Ingels is toasting his recently revealed design for 2 World Trade Center with a $3.89 million Dumbo penthouse. The Daily News reports that Ingels will be moving into the three-bedroom duplex at 205 Water Street, which offers a whopping 2,344 square feet of outdoor space, spread across four terraces, that provides the perfect view of the architect’s impending Financial District tower. The sellers of the industrial-chic pad are interior designer and lifestyle guru Athena Calderone and her music producer husband, DJ Victor Calderone, who bought the home for $2.3 million in 2012 and originally listed it for $4.3 million back in January.
We’re not surprised that this residence was featured in a 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. It’s impeccably designed from floor to 20-foot ceilings. A private elevator opens to the first floor with its dramatic double-height living and dining area. This space boasts matte-finished wide-plank floors, concrete walls, an open steel staircase, two-story walls of windows. It opens to the high-end kitchen, as well as a balcony and massive terrace that has a fire pit.
The second floor contains the master suite, which has a private south-facing terrace, walk-in-closet and office area. One of the other bedrooms has a very vibrant design that we’re not sure Bjarke will embrace.
The incredible roof terrace looks like it could be a private club. Offerings in the building include a fitness room, media lounge, bicycle storage, courtyard, common outdoor space (not that you need it!), cold storage, and a 24-hour concierge.
