Details were scarce when it was announced last week that one of Manhattan’s last sky bridges was coming to the market. As it turns out, the property, which spans 9 Jay Street and 67 Hudson #3AB, is a pocket listing being marketed by brokers Ryan Serhant and Kaptan Unugur of Nestseekers. Tribeca Citizen, however, was able to score the floor plan of the massive home, and a pretty nifty rendering offering color-coded a street view of what you’d be buying—if you were to snap up the home, which is going for a reported $30 million.

According to the Nestseekers email received by the Citizen, this is the first time in 30 years that the two units have been offered for sale together. The whole residence totals an impressive 8,200 square feet and includes 9 Jay Street, a 6,300-square-foot, 25-foot wide townhouse with 11-foot ceilings, over 50 windows and a rooftop terrace, and 67 Hudson #3AB, a 1,900-square-foot loft that was combined from two separate apartments. The listing also touts that the whole shebang can be made into “a majestic five bedroom, five bathroom home,” or that 9 Jay Street can be converted for commercial use—or a combo of the two.
The Staple Street Skybridge, clearly the gem of the deal, was built as a pedestrian bridge in 1907 to connect the New York Hospital’s House of Relief to their three-story brick annex building across Staple Street at the third floor of 67 Hudson Street. As we wrote previously, for the last 30 years, the bridge has been owned by fashion designer Zoran Ladicorbic, who used it to connect his personal home and studio.
The rumored price, again, is $30 million, and the listing notes common charges of $1,481.86 and annual taxes of $70,395. A sizable bill, yes, but we don’t doubt there have been plenty of inquiries.
