Although Justin Timberlake was spotted scoping out an $18.5 million Greenwich Village penthouse last month, he chose Tribeca to call home with wife Jessica Biel and their two-year-old son, Silas. According to the Real Deal, the power couple signed a deal for a penthouse at 443 Greenwich Street. Built in 1882 and recently restored by CetraRuddy Architects, the building boasts an interior courtyard, underground garage, 71-foot indoor swimming pool and landscaped roof terrace, so it’s no wonder celebrities are flocking here. Former residents include Mike Myers, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Jennifer Lawrence, and Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton. While the exact unit the couple bought remains unclear, Penthouse G is currently under contract for $27.5 million.

This three-bedroom Tribeca condo at 250 West Street definitely looks fit for a music producer, so it’s no surprise this is the home of famous music industry executive Sylvia Rhone. Born and raised in Harlem, Rhone moved downtown after making her name in the business and purchased this pad for $4.3 million in 2013. The apartment boasts 2,500 square feet of space, with a joint living and dining room that looks out onto the Hudson River, and it can now be yours for $6.695 million.

Coincidentally, just a few days after Gwyneth Paltrow and ex-husband Chris Martin sold their $10 million Tribeca penthouse at 416 Washington Street (where Gwynie has been currently living), the couple’s former townhouse at 13 Harrison Street has hit the market for $24,995,000 (h/t LLNYC). The five-story, loft-style residence boasts seven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, an elevator, three wood-burning fireplaces, three laundry facilities, large skylights, and a lovely solarium. It’s currently configured as two condos– a six-bedroom owner’s quadruplex and a mixed-use ground floor apartment–but will be delivered vacant.

This massive home, dubbed the Gerken Residence, occupies 6,000 square feet of interior space, plus a 1,500-square-foot rooftop garden, all located on the top floors of a historic Tribeca building. Designed by Young Projects, the unique loft’s inner structure is comprised of three nested prisms that explore the relationship between solid and void. The floor plan also has various cuts strategically placed to hide and reveal the sky and city.

Last month’s price chop and new listing photos certainly did the trick–Gwyneth Paltrow and ex-husband Chris Martin have finally found a buyer for their Tribeca penthouse at 416 Washington Street. The consciously uncoupled pair bought the apartment as a pied-a-terre in 2007 for $5.1 million, but after going their separate ways, listed it last March for $14.25 million. Gwynie then reduced the price to $12.85 million in November and again to $9,995,000 last month. Now, Mansion Global reports that it’s gone into contract, though until it hits public records there’s no word on who the lucky buyer is and whether or not they’ll retain the “ethereal” interiors and fuzzy nap zones.

Besides being a gorgeous light-filled three-bedroom (with room for a fourth) corner loft in trendy Tribeca, this $4.95 million condominium at 161 Hudson Street is, as the listing puts it, “the epitome of chic downtown style.” Unobstructed sky views, sound-proof windows, central HVAC, a laundry room and a gracious layout with bedrooms on opposite sides for privacy are part of the infrastructure. But when it comes to fixtures, finishes, materials and design, the 2,315-square-foot loft is a perfect opportunity to see today’s top decorating trends–all in one place.

After selling the $50 million penthouse at the beginning of the year and celebrating the building’s topping out last month, the Related Companies has unveiled the $65 million penthouse atop their Tribeca condo 70 Vestry, the largest apartment listed in New York this year. The massive, incredibly luxurious home is the crowning jewel of the Robert A.M. Stern-designed project, boasting close to 8,000 square feet of interior space designed by Daniel Romualdez and 3,687 square feet of private outdoor space across three levels and including a rooftop terrace. Benjamin Joseph, Executive Vice President at Related Companies, said in a press release, “A penthouse of this caliber has never before been offered in Tribeca, and may never be again.”

Though not notable for leading a private lifestyle (might we mention her very public “conscious uncoupling” and certain intimate products that she’s touted on her blog Goop), Gwyneth Paltrow has been reticent to showcase interior photos of her Tribeca penthouse. She first listed the pad at 416 Washington Street last March for $14.25 million; after chopping the price to $12.85 million in November, she self-published a few images on Goop; but now that it’s taken a third cut to $9,995,000, it looks like Gwynie is loosening up. LL NYC first spotted the new listing with Compass, which now has plenty of views, from the famous fuzzy nap zones, to the living room swing made of an antique Indoor door, to endless swaths of white marble and ethereal hand-painted wall coverings.

Maya Lin-designed Tribeca mansion lists for $35M

By Dana Schulz, Mon, February 27, 2017

Despite the claim by some preservationists that the building looked like “a block of swiss cheese,” back in June the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved Maya Lin Studio‘s design of a contemporary mega-mansion in the heart of Tribeca‘s historic district. The plans call for a five-story, 20,000-square-foot home at 11 Hubert Street–including incredible amenities such as an 82-foot swimming pool, basketball/squash court, four-car garage, and an open-air courtyard–and, as the Post reports, the corner site has just hit the market for $35 million, though this doesn’t include the $15 million it’ll cost to actually build the house.

One of the best ways to enjoy Manhattan living is to be surrounded by the city’s ever-changing, mesmerizing skyline, especially if you’re lucky enough to be gazing from your own private perch. At this duplex penthouse atop the 12-unit condominium at 92 Warren Street in Tribeca, currently asking $8.5 million, the opportunities to do just that are many. Two spacious balconies and a roof deck afford dizzying views of the surrounding skyscrapers, classic lofts and the Hudson River–and you’re getting the same amazing eyeful even if you stay indoors.

“American Pie” and “Orange is the New Black” actor Jason Biggs married actress and author Jenny Mollen in 2008, after they met filming “My Best Friend’s Girl.” Five years later, the trendy couple bought a sprawling Tribeca loft at 288 West Street for $2.55 million, enlisting designer-to-the-stars Cliff Fong (with whom they’d worked previously on two L.A. homes) to outfit the space with a combination of modern furniture and accessories from Wayfair.com, their extensive art collection, and playful and comfortable pieces to accommodate their three-year-old son Sid–all of which blend seamlessly with the loft’s brick walls, exposed timber framing and beams, raw pipes, and open floorplan. They’ve now decided to put the apartment on the market, and it’s asking a not-especially, marked-up price of $2,995,000.

As the listing for this $4.995 million Tribeca spread at 85 Walker Street says, “vintage” doesn’t do this amazing artists’ loft justice. Occupying the entire fourth and fifth floors of a cast iron building that dates from 1868, it’s more of what we’d call a piece of New York City history; the top-floor duplex is on the market for the first time since 1969.

Sometimes one penthouse is enough. That’s what the owner of a pair of sleek, terrace wrapped trophy penthouses at 110 Duane Street on the West Broadway side of Tribeca found out after the two units were on the market together for about a year starting in 2014 at $9.95 million for the pair. After a $1 million price chop, there was an attempt to further sweeten the 4,550-square-foot dream home concept with plans drawn up for a massive melding of the two. The two pricey pads parted ways in 2015, going to separate buyers, 3N for $4.25 million and 3S for $4 million. Now the latter half of the star-crossed dream home has had a trendy, Euro-pale design makeover and is back on the market for $4.9M.

At 2,200 square feet, who needs two?

“It’s freedom, baby, yeah!” At least from his Tribeca apartment. Mike Myers bought a $14.65 million loft in 443 Greenwich Street at the beginning of the year, but clearly had sudden a change of heart, re-listing it just a week later for the slightly higher price of $15 million. And now, only a month after purchasing the pad, it’s gone into contract, according to LL NYC. Now if only he could so easily unload his $15.95 million Mercer Street penthouse.

If your closets are no match for your shopping addiction, let this historic Tribeca loft in (appropriately) a 1910 mercantile warehouse at 77 Hudson Street inspire you. While original and reclaimed materials like wide timber beams, cast iron posts, original pine flooring, a claw foot tub and those floor-to-ceiling sliding doors of steel and glass sourced from the historic City Hall set the stage, the current setup of this 2,000 square-foot loft, on the market for $2.88 million, makes fashion a priority.

But how many pairs of heels can it hold?

There’s nothing timid about this three-bedroom loft apartment, perched on the sixth floor of the Tribeca condo 28 Laight Street. The sprawling living room is dominated by exposed wood ceilings, with wide-plank ebonized oak floors below. Massive windows framed by exposed brick bring light into the bold and striking space. Such an impressive interior design will set a buyer back $5.75 million.

This sprawling 1,700-square-foot apartment takes up the entire fifth floor of 91 Franklin Street, a five-story, five-unit rental in Tribeca. Having the top-floor unit means the space is outfitted with skylights, as well as exposures to the north and south. Any renter ready to pay $6,250 a month will also get this pad fully furnished, which includes art from the owner’s extensive contemporary collection.

Now’s your chance to get in at Tribeca‘s celebrity heavy condo, the Sugar Loaf Building at 155 Franklin Street. Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh has listed his $5.75 million three-bedroom apartment, which is situated right below Taylor Swift’s palatial, lofty pad. And at 155 Franklin, all things revolve around Taylor Swift: Sir Ian McKellen was staying in Peter Jackson’s apartment and got evicted when Jackson sold the unit to Swift; and Orlando Bloom sold his apartment soon after Swift moved in with rumors of paparazzi annoyance. But if you don’t mind the crowd of fans, this unit boasts 2,450 square feet as well as the same exposed brick and timber-beamed ceilings that decorate Swift’s nearby abode.

Though it’s within the boundaries of pricey Tribeca to be sure, this duplex loft at 356 Broadway overlooks what The Real Deal called “something of a final frontier in Manhattan,” though even that 2015 reference was alluding to rapid changes afoot in what is known in real estate circles as East Tribeca. With classic interiors that play up the rustic side of loft decor–exposed brick and beams, open rooms and double-height ceilings–this 1,417-square-foot condominium has been fully renovated in an up-to-the minute style. The listing says it’s “priced to sell quick,” and the $1.649 million ask looks like a pretty good deal for anything in Tribeca that isn’t a closet, though it’s worth noting that the sellers purchased the unit for $828,000–about half the current price–in 2012.

The next buyer of this Tribeca penthouse will not have a hard time impressing anyone with its sprawling private roof deck and three-story interior space. It’s located at the condo loft 356 Broadway, a prewar building constructed in 1864 and converted to 18 apartments in 1984. This top-floor residence is the only unit in the building now on the market, asking $2.65 million.

This massive, duplex loft at 16 Jay Street in Tribeca has been trying to sell since April 2011. Its owner, textile designer, painter, and sculptor Gianluca Berardi, bought the pad in 2002 for $2.2 million, then undertook a lengthy overhaul that included adding the “sweeping cast-iron and mahogany staircase that was welded together inside the home in the shape of a double ellipsis,” as 6sqft previously reported. She first listed it in 2009 for $8.4 million, then reduced it to $8 million in 2012, and in 2014, re-listed it as a $45,000/month rental. The following year, actress Keira Knightly rented the apartment, as did Rangers player Eric Staal. It then came back on the market for $6.6 million this past March, and now, after seven long years, it’s finally found a buyer for the reduced price of $6 million, reports the Post.

Nah, baby, nah… It took just a week for Mike Myers to change his mind about purchasing a sprawling $14.65 million loft in Tribeca’s 443 Greenwich Street. The Observer reports the funnyman has just relisted the 4,241-square-foot spread for a slightly higher $15 million. While it’s not clear what prompted his decision, Myers’ move gives us a fresh look inside the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom condo currently being marketed by Compass.

The top-floor units at Robert A.M. Stern’s 930-foot 30 Park Place have a way of making headlines. The 82nd floor penthouse, for instance, boasts the highest private outdoor space in the city, and the building’s own developer, Larry Silverstein, recently snatched up the massive 80th floor spread for $34 million. But below these units are two duplex penthouses that span the 78th and 79th floors, notable for their double-height loggias that, as Curbed notes, have become a fixture in classic Stern buildings like 15 Central Park West and 520 Park Avenue. Curbed also got their hands on new photos of penthouse 78B, on the market for $29.5 million, which not only showcase the incredible views from the terrace, but new looks at the interiors.

The red-brick, former warehouse building at 443 Greenwich Street in Tribeca was converted to boutique condos by CetraRuddy Architects and developer Metro Loft Management in 2014, and since then it’s been attracting quite a bit of high-profile interest thanks to its low-profile location, luxurious lofts, and wealth of amenities. The latest celeb to cash in here is Mike Myers; the Observer reports that he and wife Kelly Tisdale have dropped $14.65 million on a four-bedroom spread (more than the $14.25 million list price). The funnyman has been trying to sell his Soho penthouse since April 2015, and though there’s no word that it’s found a buyer, that could very well be the reason for the move.

The interiors at this jumbo Tribeca loft are a work of art even at first glance; that’s likely because the 4,223 square foot home at 173 Duane Street is currently owned by artist Merrill Steiger, who bought it in 2008 for $3.85 million. Incidentally, the two-bedroom loft co-op is also in the building where sculptor Richard Serra has lived and worked since the 1990s. Serra, who is known for his large-scale site-specific works, has at various times purchased the first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors of the classic early 20th-century cast iron building with his wife, Clara. The sprawling second floor apartment with a separate art studio is currently listed by Steiger for $7.95 million.
