Forbes’ 30 under 30 in video games, Zach Gage, is cashing in on his success. The gamer and conceptual artist just picked up this sweet Chinatown penthouse at 18 Orchard Street for $3.9 million, according to city records filed today. The 28-year old, who has developed games such as SpellTower, Ridiculous Fishing, and Lose/Lose, and been exhibited at venues like the Venice Biennale, the MoMA, and in Apple stores worldwide, seems to not have strayed far from his edgy sensibilities. His new three-bedroom duplex features a rooftop catwalk, some killer lights, and a futuristic watchtower with “a transcendent view of the sunset and cityscape”.

Inside, the 2,800-square-foot renovated duplex loft features 13′ ceilings, two working fireplaces, and four exposures. A Crestron system controls lighting, shades and sound, and the kitchen has been updated with state-of-the-art custom appliances and finishes with a large walk-in pantry and spacious laundry room. The penthouse also comes with a keyed elevator.

The building itself was constructed circa 1900 and is sited on a happening street right by the upcoming Ace Hotel. Although, with a cool multi-level rooftop like Gage’s, we don’t imagine him and his friends venturing too far from the property.
