Thanks to our friends over at StreetEasy, we’re rather on top of this city’s real estate comings and goings — emphasis on goings.
This week, a handful of highly priced pads left the market, and here are the ones we’re saddest to see go — although, we rather suspect we’ll see some of them again soon, perhaps with a spanking new price tag.
212 Fifth Avenue Penthouse | Off Market
This week we’re sad to bid farewell to the jewel in 212 Fifth Avenue’s crown. The top-floor triplex was asking $68.5 million, and was still under construction when LLNYC toured it last year.
A little birdie told us that the developers of the building are suing the project’s marketing firm, Town Residential, so we think it’s safe to assume we’ll see this spread again soon with some new brokers on board.
160 Leroy Street PH South | Off Market
Described by its listing as “masterfully conceived” this pad has been asking a cool $29.5 million since it hit the market last year. The 4,849-square-foot unit, at what might be the West Village’s most curvaceous building, features four bedrooms, a private roof terrace and some impressive views.
The building’s developer, Ian Schrager, was recently pardoned by former President Barack Obama over a 1980s tax evasion conviction.
157 West 57th Street #60B | Off Market
Don’t fret if your heart was set on this particular unit at Midtown’s One57; the building has no less that 23 other units available right now. This one has been on and off the market since May 2015, consistently asking $27.3 million.
The 4,193-square-foot spread comes with three bedrooms, a master suite bigger than my entire apartment and views that go forever.
293 Lafayette Street #PH3 | Off Market
The Puck Building in Nolita might just be some of our favorite real estate in the city. So it’s frankly a crime that this three-bedroom penthouse hasn’t been snapped up already. It was last asking just a pinch under $20 million.
The famed building holds six penthouses total, and when we toured the priciest offering we were suitably dazzled.
160 Leroy Street North 14B | Off Market
We’re also bidding adieu to this slightly smaller and rather cheaper unit at 160 Leroy Street. This corner unit, which was asking $19.5 million right before it wasn’t asking anything at all, comes with four bedrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and an abundance of wall space for art.
Like all the other units listed here, we suspect this isn’t the last we’ve seen of it.
