Here’s a stunner of a loft apartment, occupying the full floor of the Soho cooperative 27 Howard Street. A private key-locked elevator opens into a white, bright living room with high ceilings and brick walls. Plenty of details give the space personality, including a working wood-burning fireplace, walls of windows, and the building’s original 19th-century wainscoting and moldings. On the opposite side of the open living space, there’s a spacious master bedroom (with a tricked-out bathroom), plus a media/guest room in between. The 2,000-square-foot pad has just been listed for $4.25 million.
A year ago, Justin Timberlake, his wife Jessica Biel, and their young son Silas decided to call Tribeca home with a $20 million penthouse buy at 443 Greenwich Street. That left Timberlake with an unwanted penthouse at the Soho Mews, which the singer/actor/all-around celeb paid just over $6.5 million for in 2010. Curbed now reports that he’s listed the sleek spread on the market for $7.995 million with Stribling broker-to-the-stars Jared Seligman. Any interested party will be buying into a celebrity-friendly condo that Meg Ryan and Jake Gyllenhaal have also called home.
In a 1900-era loft-building on a bustling West Soho block, this full-floor loft co-op at 459 West Broadway spans 3,150 square feet of brick-lined, impossibly high-ceilinged living space. On the market for $6.35 million, the three-bedroom loft has all the old-school historic details that are often copied but increasingly rare in the era of the celebrity-filled loft condo.
The name is as flashy as its leather-wrapped walls and furnishings and smoked-glass kitchen: Townhouse One at Soho Mews spans 3,855 square feet on two floors and offers five bedrooms and a discreet private entrance on Soho‘s bustling Wooster Street. Asking $9.5 million, this palatial “townhouse” gets access to the amenities of the stylish Soho Mews condominium at 311 West Broadway including a concierge, a gym and parking.
This Soho studio was renovated five years ago, bringing a stark modern aesthetic to a unit already boasting high ceilings, hardwood floors, exposed brick, and a decorative fireplace. Though the studio isn’t huge, white walls and cabinetry, plus a line of windows that face Sullivan Street, keep things nice and bright. The pad, located at 145 Sullivan Street, sold in 2012 for $346,000 before being listed at an ask of $549,000.
Most Soho penthouses are spread across warehouse space–so it’s unique to see a floorplan with a large, sunken great room. But that’s what you get with the penthouse unit at 154 Spring Street, in Soho, which has just hit the market for $9.95 million. A private key-locked elevator opens to a 4,131-square-foot pad (with an extra 875 square feet outside!) lined with arched windows and skylights. There are three bedrooms over three floors, plus lots of fancy interior touches that include a glass staircase.

6sqft’s series “Where I Work” takes us into the studios, offices, and off-beat workspaces of New Yorkers across the city. In this installment, we’re touring artistic duo Strosberg Mandel‘s Soho studio.Want to see your business featured here? Get in touch!
Last year, Belgian-American figurative painter Serge Strosberg had an exhibit about feminism in the East Village. The show’s curator introduced him to David Mandel, a theatrical stylist, jewelry designer, and former drag queen. Though the two came from very different artistic backgrounds, they immediately hit it off on both a personal and professional level. Fast forward to today, and they’ve formed the NYC-based artistic duo Strosberg Mandel, creating large-scale assemblage portraits–mostly of rock n’ roll icons such as Prince, David Bowie, Elvis, and Cher–using found materials and glamorous add-ons like Swarovski diamonds and luxury fabrics.
In anticipation of their upcoming debut solo exhibition “Troubadours of Eternity” at Lichtundfire from January 24th to February 4th, in which they’ll unveil the full portrait series as “a celebration of authentic musicianship and timeless spirits,” Serge and David invited us into their Soho studio to get an advanced preview of the pieces and learn about their unique work and partnership.
After an 11-year economic slump, local protests and multiple lawsuits, the Trump Soho condominium and hotel at 246 Spring Street has officially become the Dominick Hotel and Spa. Last month, the Trump Organization cut ties with the property after making a deal with the building’s owner, CIM Group, to step away from the hotel amid a decline in room prices. Between 11 pm on Wednesday and 3 am on Thursday, workers removed the Trump Soho lettering from the facade of the glitzy 46-story hotel, literally erasing President Trump’s association with the building.
This distinctive penthouse is the work of Mark Foster Gage Architects, who is not afraid to turn your architectural world upside down. Here at 88 Prince Street, in Soho, he’s taken a 12th floor penthouse unit and decked it out with eye-popping art, custom windows and lighting, a floating staircase and stunning skylight. The apartment last sold in 2008 for $5.8 million, according to public records. Post renovation, the co-op is on the market for an impressive $22.5 million (the second most expensive in the ‘hood) with a monthly maintenance of $8,094.
New York City has never, barring perhaps a short stretch of the go-go ’80s, been Trump country. But the Trump Organization’s high-profile Midtown properties blend with the area’s flow of international money and glamour-seeking tourists. Much further downtown, the Trump Soho condominium/hotel at 246 Spring Street has been at best a minor embarrassment in the neighborhood since the ambitious announcement of its birth on Donald J. Trump’s TV show “The Apprentice” 11 years ago. Now, what was launched as “an awe-inspiring masterpiece,” is being severed from the Trump fold, the New York Times reports. In addition to poor economic performance, the 46-story luxury hotel has attracted opposition from locals since its arrival, protests during Trump’s candidacy and scrutiny after the election due to its ties to a Russian dealmaker.
