“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.
The living room of this Tribeca loft offers–through big, south-facing windows–impressive views over Lower Manhattan and One World Trade Center. The apartment, located at the condop building 112 Franklin Street, also boasts its own key-locked elevator entrance, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, all under 15-foot ceilings.
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.
“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.
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.
In March 2015, Kathryn Bigelow (who in 2010 became the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Director for her work on “The Hurt Locker” and subsequently gained more acclaim for “Zero Dark Thirty”) bought a $3.03 million condo in Tribeca, but she’s now decided to part ways with it. The Observer reports that Bigelow just listed the full-floor spread at 449 Washington Street for $2,895,000, meaning she’ll likely take a slight loss on the property.
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 firm incidentally is also trying to help him sell his Mercer Street penthouse, currently going for $15.95 million.
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.
It was announced just over a year ago that starchitect Rafael Viñoly would donate his services to the Hudson River Park Trust to design an estuarium, a science education and research center, at the base of Tribeca‘s Pier 26. Now, Tribeca Citizen has brought us the first set of conceptual renderings of the $30 million Pier, which don’t include Viñoly’s building (other than as a placeholder), but show how landscape architects OLIN will transform the 800-foot pier between North Moore and Hubert Streets into a ecological park, complete with huge lounge net areas, sports fields, expansive lawns, a river esplanade, sandy dunes, wetlands to attract birds and wildlife, and elevated tree-lined pathways that are “inspired by being in the woods,” according to DNAinfo.
If your idea of a perfect stocking stuffer is a classic Serge Mouille three-armed ceiling light, the auction of items from the private collection of architect Lee Mindel, which begins today, is just what your gift list ordered. “Light & Aerie: The Collection of Lee F. Mindel, FAIA” includes dozens of rare modernist pieces from the architect’s personal collection. Mindel is moving from his Chelsea loft in a former hat factory to a new aerie in Tribeca’s rare and collectible Herzog & de Meuron-designed “Jenga tower” at 56 Leonard Street; Mindel’s loft is available, too, if you’ve got a really big stocking to fill. Auction house Phillips is handling the sale, which includes stunning pieces ranging from art to furniture, lighting and decorative items by the likes of Jean Prouvé, Antoni Gaudí, Georges Braque, Hans J. Wegner, Ettore Sottsass, Jr. and many, many more.
An opulent duplex penthouse that’s been on the market since last year is trying its hand as a rental. Located at the Powell Building, a prewar Tribeca condo at 105 Hudson Street, the apartment is up for grabs at $25,000 a month. It first hit the market in 2015 asking $9 million, and has been slowly price chopped down to its current ask of $7.995 million. That sales or rental price will get you four bedrooms over 3,000 square feet, 3,300 more square feet of outdoor space and stunning views from the top of the building.
