You can add Tribeca pioneer and Mariah Carey neighbor to the long list of things that describe the ebullient seller of this 5,027-square-foot downtown mansion-in-the-sky at 90 Franklin Street. In an interview, Rose, a member of one of the city’s most prominent real estate families (developing company Rose Associates manages more than 30,000 apartments and owns the Chelsea Landmark building among others) tells of how she moved to the pricey downtown neighborhood in 2000, when it was “filled with factories and a few brave artists,” purchasing the apartment for (sitting down?) $3.4 million. The novelist, actress and singer who just released an album of classics and performs at venues like Joe’s Pub, is the creative force behind the apartment’s many art and music-related accents.

The condominium residence, in one of Tribeca’s many grand Deco-era buildings, needs no song and dance to give it legs. Its vast size (listed at five bedrooms, and there’s room for at least two more), prime location on one of the neighborhood’s most iconic streets, and luxurious no-detail-overlooked interiors do a fine job on their own of justifying the $14 million ask. In addition to Carey, notable building residents have include Ben Stiller and Bob Vila.

From Katy Perry and Taylor Swift to Chris Martin and Justin Timberlake, the hit makers can’t get enough of Tribeca.
