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.

According to the Observer, McDonagh bought the third-floor apartment in 2014–the same year Swift moved in–and paid $5.2 million it. Swift paid a much higher price of $20 million to Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson for the top two floors of the building.

The loft is decorated with 11-foot ceilings, many south and east facing windows, exposed brick galore and timber-beamed ceilings.

A snazzy new kitchen was outfitted with Calacatta gold marble and custom white cabinetry, as well as a massive six-seat breakfast bar. Other upgrades include new floors and lighting.

The master bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom with a double vanity and separate soaking tub. A second bedroom was outfitted as a nursery–as the Observer points out, McDonagh and his wife had their first child last October.

Any buyer will have to wait until they spot Taylor Swift in the lobby–she is currently living in a West Village townhouse while she completes renovations to her upstairs apartment. The building, however, offers plenty of privacy, with a video intercom system to see visitors and grant access though your phone or tablet.
