The largest available apartment for sale in the Financial District hit the market, according to Streeteasy.com. The 5,400-square-foot condominium at 114 Liberty Street near the corner of Greenwich Street is available for $6.39 million. The apartment, currently being marketed by Daniel Hedaya and Philip Askeroth of Platinum Properties, includes five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a fireplace and central air conditioning.

“It’s difficult to come by that size apartment in the Financial District,” Askeroth said, noting that its proximity to the new World Trade Center “makes it a good investment.”

Askeroth said he expects the apartment to be popular among families and bachelors “looking for a large amount of living space.”

The unit trumps what had been the largest FiDi apartment before by 600 square feet — a 4,800-square-foot co-op at 55 Liberty Street, which is currently in contract with an asking price of $4.5 million. TRD
