In addition to being Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld’s first New York commission, the pair of buildings known as Jardim, at 527 West 27th Street, make up an architecturally unique West Chelsea oasis. The development, which launched sales in 2016, features two 11-story buildings clad in cast-concrete interspersed with ribbons of glass. Its highlight–and name inspiration–is a verdant multi-level courtyard designed by Future Green Studio. Located in the building’s loftiest reaches, this 3,663-square-foot duplex penthouse, asking $10,800,000, offers seamless indoor/outdoor living in addition to three bedrooms and interiors designed by the building’s architect.

Celebrities, Cool Listings, Noho

Marc Balet was the longtime art director for Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, as well as for his talk show 15 Minutes that aired on MTV from 1985 to 1987. Around this same time, in the late ’80s, he purchased a three-floor loft at 620 Broadway in Noho that was used as a dance studio. He transformed it into a beautiful, light-filled live-work home, even calling on his friend Fran Lebowitz to have her father, who owned a furniture store, create custom curtains for the 17-foot-tall space. The window treatments remain today, as do many other personal mementos, including lava lamps gifted by Pee-Wee Herman and a huge wall of celebrity photographs. Balet has now decided to put the home on the market for $5,995,000 and considering it also has an incredible amount of outdoor space, it’s a place not to be missed.

This penthouse in the East Village is stunningly gorgeous, there’s no arguing that. But the exact style is so unique it’s hard to pinpoint. The current owner, interior designer Alfredo Paredes (a 33-year veteran of Ralph Lauren Corp.) describes his oasis as “bohemian, yet industrial,” though we’re also getting major Spanish Mission/Santa Barbara vibes. Located at 235 East 11th Street, the two-bedroom duplex has treetop views of St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery across the street, as well as a 960-square-foot terrace from which to enjoy them.

One57 was the first supertall (and super pricey) tower to rise below Central Park on 57th Street, leading to an influx of similar developments and the creation of “Billionaires’ Row.” At the OG tower, only two of its nearly 100 units have private balconies, and one of these coveted condos just hit the market for $4,200,000 (a relative bargain for this location). The one-bedroom has a 30-foot-long, 400-square-foot terrace that sits behind One57’s signature curving glass and offers amazing southern city views.
