J.Crew’s Jenna Lyons lands $6M Soho loft

Aug.August 11, 2013 04:00 PM

J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons has landed a 3,500-square-foot loft in Soho for $6 million, according to Curbed.

Lyons paid more than $500,000 over the asking price for the fourth floor apartment at 112 Mercer Street as the result of a bidding war. Although the final price for the loft was steep, her maintenance fee is only $200 per month, due to income from the building’s ground floor retail space (which Curbed insisted was not a J. Crew.)

The loft boasts “extreme” ceiling heights, exposed brick walls and hardwood floors, the listing said. It also has an additional private office space in the cellar and a large private storage room located in the sub basement. The same family owned this unit for 36 years.

This acquisition comes two years after Lyons split up with her husband Vincent Mazeau and sold their Brooklyn townhouse. She and her husband paid more than $250,000 above that apartment’s $3.75 million asking price, as it too was the source of a bidding war. [Curbed] – James Comtois
