Emmy Award-winning actress Sela Ward and her husband, entrepreneur Howard Sherman, have put their classy Soho loft on the market for $5,795,000. According to the New York Times, the couple used the three-bedroom co-op as a pied-a-terre, as their main residence is in Meridian, Mississippi. But now, they’re looking for a larger apartment closer to Central Park to accommodate visits from their two children. Ward and Sherman bought the loft at 16 Crosby Street in 2016 for $4,200,000 and then embarked on a year-long renovation that preserved its 19th-century details such as 14-foot tin ceilings, exposed brick walls, and cast-iron columns while adding their own contemporary, artistic touch.

An apartment in a former Lower Manhattan police stable is currently renting for $15,000/month. Located at 136 Baxter Street, the Machinery Exchange building once housed horses for the NYPD when the department’s headquarters were located at the historic Police Building. After decades as a manufacturing warehouse, the building was converted into condos in 2007. The available unit, which measures an incredible 2,600 square feet and contains four bedrooms, four baths, and two entrances, maintains its industrial roots with original timber beamed ceilings, exposed brick, and cast iron columns.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have picked up a second penthouse apartment at their Nolita building. As the Real Deal first reported, the power couple paid $7.7 million for a three-bedroom at the landmarked Brewster Carriage House at 374 Broome Street, joining the $9 million pad bought by the duo in 2018. They seem to really like the building; Legend and Teigen also lived in a one-bedroom unit at the building until they sold it in 2016 for $4 million.

Architecture and urban design research group Terreform ONE has offered a proposal for a 12-story commercial building in the works across from Petrosino Square in Nolita that goes beyond any of the city’s existing architectural curveballs, angles, and anomalies. The non-profit group has revealed plans to create an eight-story-high monarch butterfly sanctuary, or “Lepidoptera terrarium,” that would serve as the building’s façade and line its atrium.

285 Lafayette Street was built in 1886 as the Hawley & Hoops chocolate factory. In 1999, a rooftop addition was added and the building was converted to condos. Today, the open-floor lofts in a prime Nolita location are a celebrity magnet; David Bowie bought the penthouse in 1999 (his widow Iman still lives there), and Courtney Love and Ian Schrager are also former residents. But you don’t have to be a star to appreciate the colorful, modern design of this three-bedroom unit, currently renting furnished for $20,000 a month. Another added bonus is that the Soho branch of the New York Public Library is in the base of the building.
