Sales launched exactly a month ago at the long-awaited 52 Lispenard Street in Tribeca, and in that short time two of the building’s six units are already in contract at the asking price–the three-bedroom unit 3 for $7.3 million and the five-bedroom, floor-through unit 4 for $6.85 million. There are two four-bedroom units, priced at $7.2 and $8 million, also currently available.
Since the Post reports today that Jake Gyllenhaal looked at two units in the building, one of which is the three-bedroom unit now in contract to someone else, we’re wondering if he might just be the next buyer to sign on as one of the building’s first residents.
52 Lispenard Street is a seven-story building that’s a combination of two landmarked 19th century buildings on a short Tribeca street. All apartments except unit 2 have outdoor space, and they feature high ceilings, oversized custom wood-frame windows, eight-inch wide Italian white oak plank floors, and smokeless, clean-burning marble fireplaces.
The in-contract unit that Gyllenhaal reportedly checked out has three bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 3,336 square feet of space. His other prospect, the 3,804-square-foot, floor-through, four-bedroom apartment, saw a price jump from $7.5 million to $8 million, and is still available, as is the other slightly less expensive four-bedroom.
Around this time last year, Gyllenhaal looked at a 19th century, landmarked Tribeca townhouse, but perhaps now that he’s set to star in an Off-Broadway production of “Little Shop of Horrors,” he’s getting serious about putting down roots in NYC.
