When we have something to celebrate we usually do it with a glass of wine and some cake, but starchitect Bjarke Ingels is toasting his recently revealed design for 2 World Trade Center with a $3.89 million Dumbo penthouse. The Daily News reports that Ingels will be moving into the three-bedroom duplex at 205 Water Street, which offers a whopping 2,344 square feet of outdoor space, spread across four terraces, that provides the perfect view of the architect’s impending Financial District tower. The sellers of the industrial-chic pad are interior designer and lifestyle guru Athena Calderone and her music producer husband, DJ Victor Calderone, who bought the home for $2.3 million in 2012 and originally listed it for $4.3 million back in January.
205 Water Street
If you’re looking for bragging rights and great views, this DUMBO pad at 205 Water Street asking $4.3 million may be just what the doctor ordered. The three-bedroom duplex was featured in Harpers Bazaar in 2013, and is currently home to interior designer and lifestyle guru Athena Calderone and her music producer husband, DJ Victor Calderone along with their nine-year-old son Jivan.
So, why are the Calderones leaving this impeccably-designed apartment with over 2,344 square feet of outdoor space granting splendid river, bridge, and city views? Turns out it’s nothing but a short attention span. “We’re kind of serial movers,” Calderone expressed of her nomadic family who purchased the home for $2.3 million in 2012. “We tend to move every three years.” We’re guessing they’re a prompt family, too, as they’re right on time for a change of scenery. Fortunately for us, this family’s propensity for change means we get to take a moment to admire their pretty spectacular loft-like abode.
