Sky Loft, a two-story penthouse above a historic Art Deco building in Tribeca is expected to hit the market this week for $48 million.

The aerie on top of 145 Hudson Street is 7,500 square feet with high ceilings and glass walls. Top-floor aeries are gaining in popularity, as owners look for ways to attract buyers to luxury units in downtown Manhattan.

While about half the size of the 15,000-square-feet duplex at the Ritz Carlton residences — on the market right now for $118 million — broker Oren Alexander of Douglas Elliman called it “an amazing glass house on top of a building.”

The penthouse has four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms as well as a terrace that wraps around the apartment. Current owner and private investor William Duker paid $30.55 million in 2009 for the unit. The penthouse has been on the market twice before.

“This is the golden circle of Tribeca. It’s where you want to be,” Alexander told the Daily News. He has the listing together with his brother Tal. [NYDN] — Claire Moses
