Taylor Swift is probably preparing a gift basket filled with baked goods as we speak.
Her neighbor, New York Ranger’s defenseman Ryan McDonagh, is packing up his hockey sticks, and moving out. His Tribeca loft at the swanky Sugar Loaf Building at 155 Franklin Street has just gone into contract, after less than a month on the market.
The hockey player — who nabbed the place in 2014 — was asking $5.7 million for the 2,450-square-foot loft.
Broker Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group declined to comment on the closing price or the buyer.
The pad comes with three bedrooms, two bedrooms, 11-foot ceilings, exposed brick and timber-beamed ceilings, and video intercom system that allow residents to see visitors and grant access via smart phone or tablet. But the best perk of all might be getting to live in the same building as Swift.
Swift owns two side-by-side duplexes (one for her, one for her security team) at the building, which has also housed the likes of Steven Soderbergh and Orlando Bloom. She bought them in March 2014 from Lord of the Rings director, Peter Jackson for $19.95 million. Last summer she moved into a West Village rental while renovations were being carried out on the spread.
