Award-Winning TriBeCa Condo is on the Market for $13.175 Million


One of the 21 residences in the Skyloft building (located at 145 Hudson Street), this 4,120-square-foot condo—currently on the market for $13.175 million—lies in Manhattan’s coveted neighborhood of TriBeCa.

Initially purchased as semi-raw space, the tranquil home was redesigned a few years ago by architectural company Gary Lee Partners, which went on to win the 2010 AIA Chicago Design Excellence Award for the project. Offering panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River, the luxurious three-bedroom features oversized and bespoke, double-pane steel casement windows, and comes equipped with humidifying, auxiliary heating, and Nulux lighting systems.

The residence’s kitchen—which has its own service entrance—comes complete with top-notch professional appliances by Thermador and Viking, on top of Caesarstone countertops. Its master bath showcases Moda Siena Silver Travertine stone, a steam shower, a hydrotherapy bathtub, and leads to a private gym. Among the home’s slew of noteworthy features are custom oak paneling and pocket doors and diamond-polished concrete floors.


This Luxurious Pierre Hotel Suite is NYC’s Priciest Rental

By Elena Dimarco

New York City is known for its fast-paced living, the finest in dining and entertainment, and having some of the priciest (and most luxurious) pads in the entire world. So how much could the most expensive rental in the Big Apple possibly be?

The answer can be found in Manhattan’s famed Pierre Hotel, where the 39th floor is currently available for lease at a whopping $500,000 per month.

The 39th floor includes the hotel’s prized, two-bedroom Presidential Suite, which can be booked as a regular hotel suite for $20,000 a night, or (for extended stays) $400,000 per month. However, when combined with the floor’s adjacent rooms—as indicated on the listing—it becomes a palatial 4,786-square-foot mega-suite with six bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms.

The elegant, fully-furnished suites possess a wide range of luxury elements. The living, dining, and sitting rooms are complete with custom furniture, couture fabrics, and Murano glass chandeliers. Other features include high ceilings, en-suite marble baths (resembling spas), and curated artwork.

Additionally included in the eye-popping price tag are the premier amenities provided by the Pierre Hotel, such as a private elevator landing, butler service, twice-daily housekeeping, and a chauffeur-driven Jaguar.


This is the first time the Presidential Suite has been offered for extended stays, according to the hotel. As part of the newly-launched Pierre Hotel Residences program, the grouping of suites that comprise the 39th floor can now be rented altogether, or separately, on a month-to-month basis.


The Pierre Hotel initially opened for business in 1930, and was designed by New York architecture firm Schultze & Weaver. It is located at 2 East 61st Street, at the intersection of Fifth Avenue.


Mad Men Star Jon Hamm Lists Modest NYC Crash Pad for $2.4M

jh4Heartthrob Mad Men star Jon Hamm has already won over the vast majority of womankind with his stellar acting skills (not to mention his good looks), and now he’s impressing the rest of NYC’s population with this contemporary pad on East 73rd Street and Park Ave.

Hamm and his long-time lady Jennifer Westfeldt reportedly purchased the apartment together in April 2013, and it seems that the pre-war penthouse will be an easy sell. Located within a Rosario Candela-designed building a half block from Central Park, the residence offers a sun room, a combination living and dining space, beautiful wood flooring and plenty of natural light, a spacious kitchen, small bedrooms, laundry facilities (sadly not in-apartment) and bicycle storage.

The couple also owns a five-bedroom residence in L.A.
