Travis Kalanick, the co-founder of Uber who was forced to resign last year after failing to report sexual harassment allegations at the company, has purchased a Soho penthouse for $36.4 million. According to the Wall Street Journal, Kalanick now owns a full-floor duplex penthouse at 565 Broome Street, a 30-story tower, still under construction, designed by Renzo Piano. The sprawling 6,655-square-foot home features four bedrooms, three terraces, and a private rooftop with a heated pool. It was first listed in April for $40.5 million.
The residence comes with a private elevator, which opens into the foyer and huge great room. With over 40 linear feet of floor-to-ceiling windows and 16-foot high ceilings, this residence is no doubt the crown jewel at 565 Broome Soho. This floor also features a library, wet bar, and two terraces overlooking Soho.
More views follow you into the eat-in kitchen, which features simple custom cabinetry, lava stone countertops, and Miele appliances. Seats at the center island look out through south-facing windows, which perfectly frame the World Trade Center.
On the second floor, accessed through an architectural staircase or the private elevator, the master suite can be found. The bedroom features two walk-in closets and an en-suite windowed master bath. Three more bedrooms are on this level, all with en-suite baths.
The top level features an amenity that not many New York City apartments can say they have: a private roof terrace with a 20-foot heated pool. And the 2,500-square-foot space includes a kitchen and incredible city views.
Amenities at the building, the tallest in Soho, include a covered porte-cochere with a mechanical parking system, fitness center, and a 55-foot pool. The building is expected to finish by the end of this year.
