An Ian Schrager developed building, which will rise to 16 floors and contain 49 apartments, is much recognized for its Miami appeal and curvaceous shape, allowing residents a choice from one of the 14 unique layouts.
Ranging from one to six bedrooms, it’s been announced that one-bedroom apartments will start at $2.4 million while an apartment, like the building’s five-bedroom Penthouse 1 South, will go for $26.5 million.
But the showstopper of 160 Leroy Street is expected to be its six-bedroom penthouse that, according to The Wall Street Journal, will come with a price tag of $75 to $80 million. Amounting to approximately 12,200 sqft, the penthouse will occupy the top floor of the building and includes a spiral staircase and interior elevator that’ll give the resident access to the 7,369 sqft rooftop terrace complete with a 31-ft-long private pool. In addition to the six bedrooms, the master suite will include an office and private training studio. The penthouse also features three wood-burning fireplace and a total of three kitchens: a social kitchen for entertaining, chef’s kitchen for cooking, and a rooftop terrace kitchen.
A total of seven listings are currently available and sales are said to officially begin next week; however by this time, 50 percent of the new development has already been sold.
160 Leroy Street isn’t the only highly anticipated Herzog & Meuron project. The architectural firm is also working with Schrager on 215 Chrystie Street, a 28-floor, 11 condominium building in Nolita, one of the newest residences on the Lower East Side. The 11 condos of 125 Chrystie Street will sit atop the building’s corresponding hotel, which will host services and amenities accessible to 160 Leroy Street residents as well. But Herzog & Meuron’s most intriguing project may be the jenga-like 56 Leonard that topped out last year to its full height. Currently the tallest tower in Tribeca, it’s slated for completion this year.
