Tribeca’s historic skybridge building gets a major price chop to $35M

November 8, 2018

Just about three years ago, 6sqft reported that one of Tribeca‘s more unusual architectural offerings, the 8,170-square-foot townhouse at 9 Jay Street that includes the famous Staple Street Skybridge, was for sale. The building, the pedestrian skybridge and loft condo it connects to–once the home and studio of iconic 1980s fashion designer Zoran Ladicorbic–were asking $50 million. Now, the quirky collection is back on the market with a hefty $15 million price chop, asking $35 million. The new ask comes with 4,080 square feet of air rights, and from the looks of the building’s wide open interiors, the options for a new buyer are many.

The latest listing calls this unusual property hidden in plain sight among the neighborhood’s cobblestoned street a magical open canvas, and that’s a fitting description of the interiors. There are south, west, north and east exposures with iconic city views in every direction.

A private third-floor residence is located in the 67 Hudson Street condominium building, built in 1894 as the New York Hospital Building. The unit is accessed by private elevator. Providing a link between that property and 9 Jay Street, once the hospital’s ambulance annex, is the celebrated skybridge.

The 67 Hudson Street corner loft spans 2,300 square feet and offers a large bedroom with en-suite bath, walk-in closet, open living and dining room and spacious eat-in kitchen.

Down a hallway off the kitchen is the three-story Staple Street Skybridge lined with tall casement windows and and striking views of old Staple Street.

The townhouse at 9 Jay Street is a 25-foot-by-53-foot four-story brick building with two curb cuts and the aforementioned air rights. The combination would make a peerless palatial residence, complete with roof deck, office space and historic cachet. Bring your imagination, architect or designer, says the listing.
