56 Leonard is one of NYC’s most exciting recent architectural additions. Dreamt up by Herzog & de Meuron, the skyline-altering condo tower rises 57 stories with an undeniable acrobatic grace, carefully staggering its floors in a cantilevering Jenga-like configuration that also appears to be in perfect equilibrium. Although the project developed by the Alexico Group and Hines took nearly a decade to build, a new video (h/t The Real Deal) released by the developers fast tracks the long and arduous process, neatly wrapping up 10 years of work into just over 60 seconds.

After a fairly lengthy house hunt, Jennifer Lawrence dropped $9 million on a sprawling Tribeca loft in January. The apartment is at 443 Greenwich Street, which has become a celeb hot spot due to its “paparazzi-proof” amenities such as a below-grade parking and a private interior courtyard. But now that she’s in London filming “Red Sparrow,” Lawrence has put the home on the rental market, first listing it in February for $30,000 a month and now dropping the price to $27,500 (h/t TRD). Whoever inks the lease will be able to call Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, and Harry Styles their neighbors.

This apartment comes from the gorgeous Tribeca co-op building 165 Duane Street, also known as the Duane Park Lofts. The Romanesque Revival-style, 11-story warehouse was designed by Stephen Decatur Hatch in 1880 and converted in 1980 to 36 co-ops. This one bedroom is all exposed brick, with some timber beams, and it’s now asking $2.15 million. Large eastern windows look out over Tribeca’s rooftops and other great buildings, like the landmarked Western Union Building and FiDi skyscrapers to the south.

39 White Street, raad studio, Tribeca real estate

Raad Studio left its touch on this two-bedroom Tribeca condo, from the 1920s building 39 White Street. A gut renovation from the New York design firm, which has stunning projects all over the city and is behind the Lowline proposal, left this lofty apartment with both custom design elements and 19th-century details intact. From a 300-bottle wine rack to a customized floor-to-ceiling door to the master suite, this $3.7 million apartment is worth gawking over.

You would expect the apartment of an art gallery owner to look stunning, and this Tribeca condo does not dissapoint. It’s owned by Taymour Grahne, founder of the local Taymour Grahne Gallery. He paid $2.7 million for the two-bedroom pad at 8 Warren Street back in 2011, and now it’s asking $3.5 million. The interior, of course, has some great artwork alongside a simple, paired-down design that compliments the exposed brick and high ceilings.

Supermodel Petra Němcová first hit it big in 2003 when she appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, but the very next year she made headlines for a very different reason when she survived the Indian Ocean tsunami after holding onto a palm tree branch for eight hours. This inspired her to found the Happy Hearts Fund, which rebuilds schools in areas hit by natural disaster. The nonprofit is headquartered in Hudson Square, so it makes sense that Němcová has been living nearby at 200 Chambers Street in Tribeca. She listed the striking corner unit, which has one of the building’s largest private terraces, for $3.5 million in 2016, but the Post now tells us that after a recent price chop to $2,995,000 it’s found a buyer.

With deflatgate behind him and another Super Bowl win under his belt, Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady is looking to upgrade apartments. The Post reports that he and supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen may be trading up from the 11th floor spread at Tribeca‘s 70 Vestry Street they bought for $20 million in August to a $35 million unit on the floor above. Why? The speculation is that Brady wants to be on floor 12, the same number as his jersey. Perhaps it’s pure ego or superstition since his jersey was recently stolen after the big game. Either way, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building won’t be complete until next year, so the power couple has some time to make a final Hail Mary.

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.

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.
