The largest penthouse at Soho’s One Vandam has just hit the market asking $28 million, Stribling Marketing Associates’ Sean Turner, the director of sales at the building, told The Real Deal exclusively. The 5,268-square-foot, four-bedroom triplex apartment offers nearly 2,000 square feet of outdoor space.

The 14-story condominium project at 180 Sixth Avenue is being developed by Quinlan Development Group and Tavros Development Partners and is designed by BKSK Architects.

“When you work on a new building rather than a conversion,” Turner said, “you have so many more options to expand the floor plan and lighting opportunities.”

The penthouse features many of the spoils that are de rigueur for the superrich – such as wood-burning fireplaces, a triple-height staircase and a private elevator — as well as a private East-facing terrace, accessible from the master suite, which leads up to the rooftop.

“At the top of the stairs will be a sunken spa,” Turner said.

But what makes it pop are the sweeping Soho views, Turner added.

“Think of this building as a bookend to the beautiful 40 Mercer,” she said, referring to the Jean Nouvel-designed building on the other side of the neighborhood.

Out of the 25 units in the building, eight are in contract with a further three contracts out, Turner said. Prices of the other apartments range from $1.5 million for a one-bedroom apartment to $15 million  for a four-bedroom duplex penthouse. A third, 4,700-square-foot penthouse with five bedrooms that will take the entire 11th floor is yet to hit the market, but will be priced “somewhere between the two other penthouses,” Turner said.
