This 4,535-square-foot pre-war corner condo at 65 West 13th Street in Greenwich Village has the stylish contemporary lines of a gallery and the 12-foot ceilings of a loft, with sweeping city views. A renovation designed by Workshop/APD created a perfect canvas for an art collection–and a sprawling refuge for family living. Thanks to four bedrooms in separate wings, a playroom, den, and laundry room, living in the city doesn’t have to mean giving up space–though it does mean parting with $15,300,000.

On the market for the first time, asking $12,500,000, this 25-foot-wide new-construction townhouse at 57 Wyckoff Street in Cobble Hill is a modern dream home in historic Brooklyn. Designed by Workshop/APD, the 7,000-square-foot townhouse was built three years ago, a stunning addition to a classic tree-lined block. From the elevator and walls of glass to the rooftop hot tub, there’s room for just about everything and everyone in this single-family five-bedroom home.
Start in the garden, work your way up
Moving past a resounding rejection from the local community board, Property Markets Group (PMG) is forging ahead with a smaller, as-of-right plan to build a condominium and townhouse development at 111 Leroy Street. On a Belgian block stretch of the street, bestriding leafy West Village and mixed-use Hudson Square, the development will replace a long-time parking lot and small commercial building at the northeast corner of Leroy and Greenwich streets.
Permits filed last year indicate PMG is seeking to build a 10-story condo tower with five adjoining townhouses. In all, the development will span 44,000 square feet, just half the scope PMG asked the community board to approve last year. That abandoned option called for a larger 30-unit condo building anchoring the site’s corner and spanning much of the Leroy Street frontage. Towards the eastern end of the site, they proposed a modest five-story affordable senior supportive housing facility as a concession to build bigger.
More details ahead
About two years ago, this impeccable pad on Central Park West sold for $4.3 million. Today, after an extensive gut renovation, the apartment is back on the market asking $8.495 million—nearly twice its initial price. But that 50% increase includes a Workshop/APD redesign, complete with “museum quality finishes” and only the finest craftsmanship. The finished product evokes a sense of calm sophistication in a supreme duplex with partial views of the city and Central Park.
