The Metal Shutter Houses is a contemporary condo designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban in 2008, at the beginning of West Chelsea‘s starchitect boom. Today, despite its many notable neighbors, the boutique building at 524 West 19th Street still offers some of the most covetable homes. The penthouse unit is now listed for a reduced $8.9 million. Not only does the home span two floors, but it has a 20-foot, upward-pivoting, glass wall that opens to a large terrace to create a massive indoor/outdoor living space. There’s also another private terrace off the master bedroom, two balconies, and a huge roof deck complete with a hot tub. Oh, and let’s not forget the direct views of Hudson Yards and the Empire State Building.

One of New York City’s most storied apartments has just hit the market. John Lennon’s former penthouse at 434 East 52nd Street, where he briefly lived with his mistress May Pang during the 1970s and famously spotted a UFO, is asking $5.5 million. The 4,000-square-foot triplex in the Southgate co-op, located where Sutton Place, Beekman, and Midtown East meet, was also where the iconic photos of Lennon wearing a tank top that said “New York City” were taken.

In 2016, Jennifer Lawrence picked up a $15.6 million penthouse on the Upper East Side. She must have really wanted to offload it, because last summer, she listed it for $15,450,000 and dropped it to $12 million earlier this month. According to city property records, the Oscar-winning actress ultimately sold the home at 400 East 67th Street for $9,900,000, taking a nearly $6 million loss. Listing agent Pamela D’Arc of Compass declined to comment on the sale.
