The $25 million penthouse at Tribeca’s 7 Harrison Street goes live this morning, and The Real Deal got a first peek. The Southern California-style, glassy duplex house, designed by Steven Harris, is inspired by the work of late Austrian-American modernist architect Richard Neutra. The unit has four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms spread over 4,200 square feet.
On the top floor, it boasts a 2,350-square-foot landscaped terrace — complete with 12 fully-grown trees and a reflecting pool – as well as formal and informal dining rooms and what listing agent Leonard Steinberg referred to as a “scullery.”
Urban Compass’ Steinberg, who is marketing the property along with his business partner Hervé Senequier, said that the penthouse was akin to a “customized, fully-renovated apartment by Steven Harris of a quality that you will never find in a new development.” He pointed to the apartment’s 20-foot-wide floor-to ceiling glass panes, which give residents expansive views of Tribeca and the Lower Manhattan skyline.
For $9 million more, a buyer can combine the penthouse with a 2,200-square-foot half-floor unit directly below it. The half-floor pad, Steinberg said, was kept aside in case the penthouse buyer decides that they need the extra room for a guest residence or office space.
Matrix Development’s Scott Sabbagh, Sean Zalka and Shane Neuringer are converting the landmarked former cold storage warehouse into a 12-unit, $97 million condominium project, in a joint venture with Clarion Partners. The units that go live today are the last ones up for grabs.
