When the tricked-out three-bedroom triplex atop 16 Warren Street sold in 2014 for $5.1 million after languishing on the market with a price that had unceremoniously tumbled from the then-brand-new condo’s original 2008 ask of $9.175 million, “Million Dollar Listing New York” star Fredrik Eklund did the deal and shouted it from the (internet) rooftops. Fast forward a mere two years: The home’s current owners have slid the sleek penthouse back onto the market for $7.995 million.

That doesn’t seem out of line for a Tribeca penthouse, and it’s still lower than the 2008 ask, so perhaps the sellers want to be sure they don’t repeat the home’s last held-over performance. With 3,381 square feet of interior space (which looks like it’s had a modernizing update), a terrace with views of the neighborhood’s twinkling lights around every turn and a big hot tub a-bubbling on the fully-loaded rooftop deck (now with less astroturf, more ipe wood than in the earlier listing) we doubt they’ll have to wait six years to make a sale.

Tribeca Townhomes, as the glass-walled, 10-story boutique condo building is known, makes the claim that it’s the “first green building in its class,” offering low-e windows, Argon gas, water-conserving toilets and shower heads, motion and light-sensitive lighting and rooftop solar panels that facilitate hot water as well as high-tech advancements in telecommunications and security systems. Located at at the border of expensive and loft-filled Tribeca, this gleaming aerie beginning on the building’s sixth floor has plenty of selling points on its own.

With an entry via private key-locked elevator, the apartment has 14-foot ceilings throughout, walls of windows overlooking the city skyline, custom Italian-made European walnut floors, architectural woodwork of brushed European oak, walnut millwork and plenty of marble and granite. Artistic black and white images “enhance the contemporary allure.”

A sun-dappled corner living room has all seasons covered with a remote-controlled gas fireplace by Montigo and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open out to a private southern terrace.

A family-sized dining room is helmed by an open kitchen with Bulthaup cabinets and countertops and a professional appliance package with two Miele ovens, a gas cooktop, a dishwasher, a SubZero refrigerator/freezer and a Gaggenau wine fridge.

On the upper floor, the master bedroom has three exposures and stunning views, abundant closet space and an en-suite bath with a deep soaking tub, glass-enclosed steam shower and fixtures by Duravit, Fantini, Koehler and Graff.

Separated for privacy and peace, a spacious lower level holds two bedrooms (one with a balcony) and two more full baths.

The crown jewel atop this triplex is an ipe wood roof deck, accessed by elevator, with a gas fireplace, outdoor kitchen and oversized hot tub for submerged sunset viewing–and Woolworth-Building-to-One-World-Trade-Center vistas. Building perks include basement storage, a private wine cellar, a bike room, a visiting superintendent and “cyber-doorman.” And, of course, there are all the reasons buyers flock to fancified, amenity-filled Tribeca–including DDG’s bluestone-clad, highly anticipated 12-story condo building emerging just next door at 12-14 Warren.

    I took out a whole fireplace and put in broken glass and installed a burner underneath, so it looks like fire on ice. I did that in my bedroom suite. I’m pretty handy. Thank you though for sharing this great post. Looking forward to check more cool fireplaces on this site. Here’s my own site for more relevant information.
