Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Leonard Steinberg, who is heading up sales and marketing at the “Sky Garage” condominium in Chelsea with the firm’s Herve Senequier, has snatched up one of the 16 units for himself, property records show.
Steinberg, who is moving into his new digs this week, paid $2.76 million for the two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom spread at 200 11th Avenue, according to city records. It boasts unobstructed Hudson River views, 16-foot ceilings and a 159-square-foot terrace, but is the cheapest in the building and the only one without access to the sky garage amenity.
“It’s the most modest unit in the building by far,” Steinberg said. “It was initially supposed to be joined to another unit, but it was available so I pounced on it.”
The lavish, 19-story building, nicknamed “Sky Garage” for the elevator that allows residents to park cars on their own floors, was designed by Annabelle Selldorf and developed by YoungWoo & Associates. Since its 2007 sales launch, eight units have gone into contract, according to Streeteasy.com, and seven have sold, including two penthouses purchased by designer Domenico Dolce of Dolce & Gabbana for a combined $29 million last year. The remaining sponsor unit, #5S, is listed for $6.23 million by Steinberg and Senequier.
Steinberg is leaving behind an apartment at the Grand Madison at 225 Fifth Avenue, between 26th and 27th streets, where incidentally, he’s also brokered deals.
