“Go big or go home” may as well be the motto of this Tribeca penthouse apartment, located at the newish condo building 137 Franklin Street. The development only holds three units, and this one has hit the market for an impressive price tag of $17.5 million. With four bedrooms, four bathrooms, 4,000 interior square feet and 1,400 square feet outside, this apartment is dripping with luxury details from the automatic shades (outfitted on all 45 windows!) to the outdoor television set. It was designed by Julie Hillman, who is known, according to the listing, for her “modern eclectic signature look.”
The 6,853-square-foot triplex penthouse atop the 11-story 520 West 28th Street condominium on the High Line, designed by the late Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid, has arrived on the market for the first time for the as-promised ask of $50 million. The architecturally unique 39-unit building, Hadid’s first–and, sadly, only–ground-up structure in New York City, has interiors also overseen and designed by the architect.
Related Companies, the building’s developer, speaks of the honor of collaborating with “one of the world’s most visionary architects, Dame Zaha Hadid, on the design for 520 West 28th. The design is being realized as she envisioned–each residence is a work of art unto itself–and the penthouse in particular is a spectacular example of this, including various unique elements such as a sculptural three-story staircase, designed by Hadid, which unites all levels of the triplex residence.”
If you couldn’t afford the penthouse unit at 153 Chambers Street in Tribeca the first time it hit the market, now it’s back with a nearly $1 million price chop. Last year, the impressive pad hit the market asking $7.25 million and now it’s down to $6.4 million. Most notable about this triplex space are the three different terraces, decked out with a hot tub, hidden outdoor shower, landscaping and impressive views of the Freedom Tower. With summer approaching, these are some of the most envy-inducing terraces we’ve ever seen…
Before 735 Dean Street was anybody’s home, it was the post of Engine Company 219, who moved in when the firehouse was built in 1880. The historic structure in Prospect Heights has since been converted to apartments, one of which is this 1,400-square-foot triplex being offered for rent. From the inside, though, you wouldn’t guess this was in an old fire station; it looks like your typical Brooklyn loft.
You don’t find many townhouses in Soho, a neighborhood better known for its massive warehouses converted to lofty apartments. The next best thing? This triplex condo at 29 King Street that feels a whole lot like a townhouse. Each of the three floors is accessed by a private elevator, with a double-height living room that looks out onto the unit’s 900-square-foot garden. The townhouse layout then comes with condo perks like a full-time super, laundry room and storage.
If the address at 16 Debrosses Street sounds familiar, perhaps it’s because the same Tribeca loft building was home to a young Lena Dunham, whose artist parents owned–and sold for $6.25 million in 2014–a duplex loft on the fourth floor. Dunham’s first film, “Tiny Furniture,” was filmed in the space.
While that lovely and artsy loft may have been one kind of downtown dream, this tricked-out triplex penthouse, on the market for $7.995 million, is definitely another. Its 3,324 square feet may offer plenty of room for art, but this dressed-to-impress space seems better suited to entertaining and admiring the sunset against the skyline, from the Freedom Tower to the Hudson, from floor-to-ceiling windows and two separate terraces.
If the idea of living in a former church intrigues you, there are plenty of options on the market. Just yesterday, 6sqft featured a $3 million Williamsburg condo with soaring cathedral ceilings. But the 26-foot ceilings at this $6,900/month Brooklyn Heights church turned condo are some of the most spectacular we’ve yet to see in the residential realm. Located at 99 Clinton Street in the old Presbyterian Church, the architecture is downright holy, with many of the 19th century cathedral details like stained glass windows incorporated into the interior. And the exterior still boasts its historic stone facade.
Forget the brownstones with historic detailing that dominate Park Slope. This apartment, located at the co-op building 302 5th Avenue, is modernly renovated and downright lofty, with double-height ceilings and a raised space above the kitchen. The sleek spiral staircase also adds a contemporary touch. And with two bedrooms, 1,700 square feet over three floors, and a garden, there is plenty of room to spread out. The triplex has just hit the market for $1.5 million.
If you’ve always dreamed of interior features like a “dramatic floating staircase rising a full three stories from a custom koi pond,” a dangerously high number of marble-covered surfaces, and lots of shiny lacquered wood, but didn’t want to give up the sophisticated surroundings of Manhattan’s downtown Gold Coast, this triplex penthouse atop the striking 19th century brick building at 11 Vestry Street could be your jacuzzi-positive dream apartment. For $33,000 a month, this super-luxe Tribeca rental has undeniable perks–like four different outdoor spaces with amazing views–and a few opulent additions that are usually reserved for more far-out ‘hoods like Bay Ridge.
This girly-modern Tribeca triplex belonging to young interior designer Sasha Bikoff was featured–along with its owner–in a buzzed-about 2014 NY Times story about how NYC’s young contemporary millionaires live, illustrating a penchant for downtown glamour over uptown gilt. The then-26-year-old–who’s designed her share of uptown interiors–is pictured in the stylish pad, which she purchased in 2011 for $2.3 million and bestowed with a total makeover. The article highlights architect Ben Hansen’s dazzling glass-fronted boutique condo residence at 471 Washington Street as one of a handful favored by the iconoclastic (and well-heeled) under-40 set.
Bikoff listed the apartment a year ago for an ambitious $4.5 million; it has since changed brokers and toned down its earlier ask to $3.75 million. The apartment’s decor–and a bedroom-sized dream closet–make it clear that stylish singles’ pads aren’t just for the boys.
