Vishaan Chakrabarti is closing out 2015 with a bang. After not only making a $4.995 million sale on his Flatiron loft earlier this month but also leaving his position at SHoP Architects to start his own firm, Partnership for Architecture and Urbanism (PAU), the starchitect has just closed on a $5.78 million unit a FXFowle’s dramatic Flatiron tower, 35XV. According to the Post, Chakrabarti’s new pad measures just slightly smaller than his last at 2,324 square feet, but hosts three spacious bedrooms, each with en suite baths, and comes outfitted with a Lutron home automation system that includes touch-pads, remote controlled shades, lighting systems and temperature control.
The building itself hosts a climate controlled walk-in wine cellar for residents, an entertainment lounge, dining room, children’s playroom, and a health and fitness center overlooking a 75-foot wide common outdoor terrace—the perfect place to escape the stresses of the PAU offices, which happen to be just a few blocks away.
