Last month, 6sqft found out about the amazing pair of Tribeca listings that includes one of Manhattan’s last skybridges, and shortly thereafter we were teased with a floorplan of the property, which spans 9 Jay Street and 67 Hudson #3AB. It was said to be a pocket listing, but today the Wall Street Journal noticed the official public listing, which has the three-story townhouse and one-bedroom apartment set at a combined price of $50 million. What’s more surprising than the price being $20 million over initial estimates is the interior photos. Because of the quirky skybridge one would have assumed that the homes were historic, funky, or a combination of both, but they’re in fact completely bare and stark.
Not counting the bridge, the home totals 6,300 square feet–the townhouse, which comes with a roof deck, is 4,400 square feet and the duplex condo is 1,900 square feet. Combined, they can offer five bedrooms and five baths. Additionally, 9 Jay Street has the option to be commercial or residential. The interiors have 11-foot ceilings and 50 windows spanning all exposures.
The pedestrian bridge was built in 1907 to connect the New York Hospital’s House of Relief to their three-story brick annex building across Staple Street at the third floor. For the past 30 years, the bridge has been owned by fashion designer Zoran Ladicorbic, who used it to connect his personal home and studio.
Technically, the sale will be two separate transactions, as 67 Hudson is a condo building. As far as the price goes, co-broker Kaptan Unugur told the Journal, “It’s hard to price something like this. I don’t think any such property has been offered on the market.”
