Hotelier Andre Balazs, best known for LA’s Chateau Marmont, the Mercer Hotel in NYC, and the string of trendy Standard Hotels, unsurprisingly lives a life as lavish as the destination he creates. His personal condo in Soho, taking up the entire top floor at 158 Mercer Street, is no exception. Balazs added plenty of his own panache to the 4,200-square-foot loft, including massive stretches of built-in bookshelves, a custom “wall of light,” and a 13th-century Florentine fresco. He also added hotel-quality rooms like a nearly 275-square-foot closet, a personal gym, and a steam room. As the Wall Street Journal first reported, Balazs has decided to list the home for $12 million as he spends much of his time now in Europe.

A year and a half after Austrian-American businessman and investor Gerhard Andlinger scooped up Jon Bon Jovi’s Soho penthouse, he’s put it back on the market. The rocker bought the sprawling duplex at 158 Mercer Street in 2007 for $24 million, then listed it in 2013 for $42 million. After several price cuts, and some interest from supermodel Heidi Klum, Andlinger paid $34 million for the home in June 2015, but it looks like he’s ready to “Runaway,” as LL NYC tells us that it’s re-listed for $38 million.

No, really. To herald the the arrival of the media maven’s new book, “The Sleep Revolution,” which addresses the common malaise of not getting enough sleep and how it’s affecting us rather terribly, Arianna Huffington has “turned her bedroom into a sleep sanctuary.” By way of a contest accompanied by an Airbnb listing–with fabulous, full-color photos of the ultra-feminine 158 Mercer Street loft, which she purchased for $8.15 million in 2012–Arianna has invited one lucky winner and a guest to spend a night in her New York City apartment.

When it comes to this condo listing at 158 Mercer Street in SoHo, it is go big or go home. The apartment is actually a combination of two units, making for a duplex with an impressive 7,000 (!) square feet. Throw in five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and direct elevator access, and you’ve got one very fancy, very huge loft apartment. As you may guess, something like this doesn’t come cheap. It’s now on the market for $14.95 million.

It’s official, rocker Jon Bon Jovi is now free of the 158 Mercer Street digs he’s been trying to unload for the past for two years. First reported by The Real Deal, city records filed this afternoon show that the home traded hands for a whopping $34 million; although at first this seems like a pretty penny, it’s actually way down from its original ask of $42 million. The buyer is Austrian-American businessman and investor Gerhard Andlinger, who previously called a sprawling 8,300-square-footer at the Time Warner Center his home.
Have a look inside the penthouse
Recognized as one of Lower Manhattan’s most sought after addresses, this gorgeous condo at 158 Mercer Street has a lot to live up to. However, with 4,200 square feet to work with, this three-bedroom loft might be up for the challenge. The sophisticated sun-blasted space features high ceilings, dark wood floors and stately columns. Plus, the interior was meticulously designed by de la Torre design studio—a talented team once named one of Elle Decor‘s top 25 designers. The property was recently put on the market and the current listing price is $10.5 million.

Looks like rocker Jon Bon Jovi may be saying “Auf Wiedersehen” to his Soho penthouse at 158 Mercer Street’s New Museum Building, as supermodel Heidi Klum was seen checking out the $37.5 million digs. The six-bedroom, 7,452-square-foot duplex is chock full of luxurious amenities such as wood-burning fireplaces, landscaped terraces, screening and projection rooms, and living and kitchen areas on both floors. Klum was scoping out several downtown homes, but it’s not going to be easy to pass up this superb penthouse.
