Turett Collaborative Architects, East Village penthouse with slide, NYC apartments with slides, interior slides

It’s not uncommon for NYC apartment buyers to snatch up two adjacent units and combine them into one space, but it is a bit unusual to request that your architect connect the spaces with a slide. And that’s exactly what Turett Collaborative Architects (TCA) was tasked with in this East Village duplex penthouse.

The previous homeowner, professional poker player Phil Galfond, bought two identical one-bedroom units, one on top of the other. They were transformed into a 2,400-square-foot, two-bedroom duplex with a new Italian-made Rintal stair. Clearly calling the bluff of this traditional mode of getting from one floor to another, Galfond worked with TCA to also install a stainless steel helical slide that descends through the double-height atrium.

258 Riverside Dr 12AB

Maybe we are dating ourselves but we’re betting on the fact that The Odd Couple is one of those rare shows pretty much everyone has heard of, even if you were born well after the 1970’s TV series. Best known for the hilarious dynamic between unlikely roommates “neat freak” Felix Unger and slovenly but amiable Oscar Madison, the show’s setting was Mr. Madison’s Riverside Drive apartment, about ten blocks south of this immaculate 4BR/4BA home in the Peter Stuyvesant located at 258 Riverside Drive.

Take one look at this residence’s ten beautifully appointed rooms and you’ll know Oscar Madison would probably have never have been comfortable living here, but he’d be in the minority on that score. What’s not to love?

25 East 22nd Street, David Chu, Flatiron townhouses, nyc townhouse renovations, nyc corporate headquarters buildings

$27 million is nothing to sneeze at, even if you are David Chu, the founder of international clothing company Nautica. Chu purchased the townhouse at 25 East 22nd Street in 2004 for $9.3 million. He then embarked on a gut renovation, replacing the limestone façade, adding fifth and sixth floors and an elevator, and creating a swanky mixed-use building that housed his corporate headquarters and a one-bedroom pied-à-terre. The home went on the market in May 2013 for $29.99 million, and has now sold to buyer Hannah Charitable LLC for $26.8 million.

88 Central Park West #10/11N and 10W, Laurie Tisch apartment, Jeffrey Gates apartment interior

Jeffrey Gates, of Gates Capital Management, and his partner Richard Michael Moran have just acquired the rest of Laurie Tisch’s penthouse at the Brentmore, according to city records. Three years ago the pair traded up from apartment 6W to 9N, when Laurie Tisch sold off her pad in pieces. Retired investor Michael Stubbs and his wife Veronica, who lived in the neighboring apartment 10/11N purchased Tisch’s remaining unit 10W. Now it appears that Gates and Moran may have added the Stubbs’s newly renovated apartment combo to their estate for $22.5 million.

875 Fifth Avenue 19A

Okay, so this immaculate penthouse perched high atop 875 Fifth Avenue really isn’t a tree house, but given its miles of treetop views we could be forgiven for taking a few liberties with the term. Packed within Manhattan’s roughly 520 million square feet are some of the most amazing residences in the world, many of them boasting gorgeous interiors but not much in the way of outdoor space. It’s a concession one must make for living in the most vibrant city in the world. But every once in a while, something special comes along.

Space-efficient living is a must in New York City, where savvy residents build shelves into every nook and cranny of their tiny apartments. While the ad-lib additions often get the job done, they don’t always work with a home’s aesthetic. With some help from Design42 Architecture, the owners of this industrial loft were able to sidestep that problem and make the most of their space without sacrificing style.
