What does the inside of a $66 million Soho penthouse look like? When The Real Deal got an invitation to check out Jared Kushner’s conversion of the top floors of the historic Puck Building, we headed straight down to find out.

The top penthouse hit the market in January, asking north of $9,000 per square foot. One of six units designed by architect Jose Ramirez, the duplex measures more than 7,200 square feet and boasts a sprawling wraparound terrace totaling nearly 5,200 square feet.

Broker Nikki Field of Sotheby’s International Realty, who is marketing the penthouses, said the developer spared no expense with the luxury condos. The top penthouse’s kitchen has hand-poured Terrazzo floors and a barrel ceiling fabricated with ceramic-glazed brick. Whether or not the future owner opts to don a chef’s hat, the kitchen is outfitted with top shelf appliances, including a $100,000, La Cornue stove that was handmade and took 18 months to build, Field said.

A seven-room master suite has silk-upholstered walls and a private terrace, as well as his-and-hers dressing rooms and marble bathrooms. In addition to custom-designed vanities, the bathroom has an iron and porcelain tub, and a mirror with an inset television. (When the TV is off, the screen vanishes.)

According to Field, one interested buyer already offered $60 million for the penthouse, but the developer is holding out for the full asking price. “We feel the market is there,” she said. The Downtown sales record belongs to the penthouse at the nearby Walker Tower, which sold last year for more than $50 million, or around $8,300 per square foot.

So far, Kushner Cos. has sold one penthouse in the building, a $28 million unit measuring 6,000 square feet snapped up last year by JNZ Group

Two other penthouses are currently for sale, a $35.1 million pad with 5,222 square feet and a $22 million unit with 4,895 square feet. Other than the top penthouse, the units contain original details, including exposed brick cast-iron columns.

  • I can see how the penthouse may be worth the cost, but the 5-burner, $100,000 stove is just silly. For God’s sake, just get a commercial set-up if you’re keen to spend $100,000. It’ll be more useful and I’m sure they can make it look just the same.

    This building has the stink of failure wafting strongly from it. Sure he turned down a $60 million offer…yeah, sure. Also, why is this news? This listing is stale. All the listings in the building are stale. The building is overpriced, plain and simple, that’s why they’ve been pushing this with full on media coverage for two years and have only one sold unit to show for it…

    Now if I could only get a lifetime lease where I can rent it for $500 a month, everything included, I would move in.

    LOL!
