332 West 11th Street and a rendering of the potential megamansion

The era of the Greenwich Village megamansion appears to still be in full swing.

A parking garage in the West Village billed as one of the neighborhood’s last megamansion opportunities has hit the market with asking price of nearly $50 million.

The building at 332 West 11th Street has 13-foot ceilings, 50 feet of frontage and additional buildable space that can accommodate a “setback penthouse with an incredible outdoor space,” according to Curbed.

The property’s proposed floor plans show it could be turned into a huge single-family home with a five-car garage complete with Tesla charging station, a gym and other amenities. The asking price is $49.95 million.

Bradley Rothschild and Brandon Polakoff at Avison Young have the listing, according to StreetEasy.

The owner, Jack Jakub, whose auto detailing shop has been around for over 40 years, has clients that reportedly include Leonardo DiCaprio and Julianne Moore.

A similar “one-of-a-kind” rehab has struggled to find a buyer. The site of a potential megamansion at 134 Charles Street has been on and off the market since 2014. It most recently popped back on the market in October asking $80 million. [Curbed] – Rich Bockmann
