Heidi Klum buys a raw Soho penthouse loft in need of a complete reno for $5M
Though Heidi Klum has spent summers renting a New York City pad and even checked out Bon Jovi’s pricey penthouse, the supermodel and TV personality was LA-based until recently. The Post reports that Klum just closed on a 4,772-square-foot Soho penthouse loft at 515 Broadway for $5.1 million. Purchased under the name “HK East Coast LLC,” the loft, in a 19th century Queen Anne-style building also known as 84 Mercer Street, is a former artist’s studio, though it’s exempt from Artist Certification requirements. The totally raw space is in need of just about everything.
What the unit does have is potential, with high ceilings, 10 exposed support columns, hardwood floors, and large windows that look out on downtown Manhattan. The listing invites the new owner to “create the Architectural Digest Penthouse Loft of their Dreams!” Also included are deeded rights for the installation of 120 square feet of skylights.
Live/work is allowed, so the “Project Runway” host could construct the ultimate catwalk in the space. Klum, who has four children, reportedly owns a 12,000-square-foot Georgian-style mansion on five acres of land between Bel Air and Sherman Oaks.
