Tribeca Triplex With Original Keith Haring Mural Returns for $13M

This Tribeca triplex is a treasure for many reasons. Its size, for one; it occupies an insane 8,000 square feet of the classic, landmarked American Thread Building (among the first of Tribeca’s luxury condo conversions) at 260 West Broadway. Possibly the most memorable reason is an original Keith Haring mural, made in 1978 during the late artist’s days at SVA when the space was a student gallery, painted on a curving wall of the apartment’s main-floor entry gallery.

Priced at a treasure-worthy $13 million, it isn’t the property’s first time to this rodeo. As with downtown Manhattan, this amazing loft has seen quite a few changes in the new millennium. The three-story unit was previously listed as #mais and #1/2C; the three story “maisonette” is TH1 in its newest incarnation.

Going back to 2007, the property was listed for $16 million, complete with a website introducing “Where Well-Fashioned Luxury Lives” and offering 3D tours of each room. After falling to $13M, the triplex found itself on the rental market for $35k a month.

The impressive space resurfaced for $11 million in 2014 and sold for $10M within a year, as 6sqft reported. The decor–or staging strategy–has changed a bit for this brand-new listing; what hasn’t changed is that funky black-and-white mural, discovered by accident during a previous renovation.

When the home last closed in the waning days of 2014, the buyer’s agent was Ryan Serhant of “Million Dollar Listing: New York” fame, but the buyer’s identity was shielded by an LLC.

This extraordinary space still retains some lovely pre-war details while being thoroughly modernized with top-of-the-line finishes and amenities. On the home’s main level, a private vestibule and curved foyer–where you’ll find the mural–leads you into a holodeck of a 45-foot by 45-foot great room with 26-foot high ceilings, original cast-iron columns, a working wood-burning fireplace and a wall of tall arched windows.

Also on this floor you’ll find a sleek white and stainless chef’s kitchen and an unusually large pantry; a separate dining room opens onto a private step-out patio.

Up a curving custom steel staircase is the mezzanine/library overlooking the living space below through clear glass on the balcony wall.

Privately tucked behind the mezzanine, a sleeping wing contains a master suite with a double bath, wet bar, and enormous dressing-room-built-for-two. Also here is a second bedroom and bath and space for a possible third bedroom.

On the lower level you’ll find a separate private entrance, hence the maisonette cred. Also here are a media room, game room, gym/office with half bath, a full laundry room, climate-controlled wine cellar, staff/guest room with another en suite half bath–and lots of storage.

This one-of-a-kind triplex does, as the listing says, combine the privacy of townhouse living with the security and amenities of a fully-staffed building: Building residents get a 24-hour doorman, a gym, and a private roof deck. The space has some hefty taxes and an assessment in place through 2017–but on the bright side, it’s also zoned for commercial use.
