One of a handful of historic Manhattan towers that has been given new life as a luxurious residential building, 108 Leonard Street is a downtown landmark in the heart of Tribeca. Designed by McKim, Mead & White, the full-block Beaux-Arts building rose in the 1890s. At its crown, this 6,252-square-foot, three-story condominium, fittingly known as the Crown Penthouse, now sits, surrounded by glass, sprawling terraces, and New York City views. The condominium building, with interiors by the late Jeffrey Beers, is known for celebrity residents, including Nicole Kidman, Clive Davis, and Samuel L. Jackson. Asking $24,450,000, this five-bedroom triplex is definitely an A-list-worthy home.

With space rivaling a multi-floor townhouse, all floors of the penthouse are accessible by a private elevator. Within are five bedrooms and seven bathrooms; for outdoor life, 2,173 square feet of terrace space stretches beyond glass walls and doors. The building’s iconic architecture is in evidence as well, in gracefully arched windows and 16-foot ceilings.

On the home’s lowest floor, a foyer opens into a vast great room, wrapped by arched windows with open bridge and city views. Dramatic soaring ceilings are highlighted by crown moldings, chevron-patterned wood flooring, and a marble fireplace.

An equally spacious eat-in kitchen is a stunning engine for entertaining. A separate bar area complements the main workspace. Custom-designed Scavolini cabinetry is topped by Arabescato Cerviole marble, and anchored by a waterfall island. Appliances include a Miele six-burner gas cooktop, a vented hood, a double dishwasher, a combination steam/convection oven with a warming drawer, a speed oven, an espresso station, and a 100-bottle wine refrigerator.

Also on this floor is a powder room and a separate bedroom suite. This self-contained space is perfect for staff or guests or as a private home office.

The 15th floor is anchored by a large media room with a wet bar area that opens onto a large terrace. Separated by a central gallery, this floor offers three bedroom suites with terrace access and a laundry room.

At the condo’s zenith, a stunning primary suite occupies the entire 16th floor. This amazing aerie is wrapped with glass, revealing three dazzling three exposures showing off the Empire State Building, Midtown skyline, and East River. For outdoor viewing, this floor features a private terrace highlighted by the building’s original copper-clad cupola.

The suite also contains a midnight kitchen, a sitting room, a marble fireplace, and several walk-in closets. There are two separate baths lined in Calacatta Mandria marble, one with a freestanding soaking tub facing the Empire State Building.

In its reborn 21st-century form, the building offers several attended lobbies, a drive-in motor court with private valet parking, and over 20,000 square feet of amenity space. Amenities include a pool, a lounge, a fitness center, and concierge service.
