Robert Stern’s new Tribeca building, 70 Vestry, has a new penthouse on the market and it’s quite a doozy. Measuring more than 10,000 square feet, the apartment is the largest in the building and it has the price to match at $65 million.
The penthouse south unit comes with 7,808 square feet of interior space, plus an additional 3,687 square feet of outside space, spread across three levels (which of course are all connected by a private elevator). The apartment is designed for entertaining, with a main space on the second floor that has an “entertaining kitchen,” terraces, gallery, library and solarium. On the lower level is the private living space, which has the five bedrooms, another terrace and another kitchen for midnight snacks. The third level is an enormous (2,000-square-foot) private rooftop, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the river and the city.
Though $65 million is a lot to ask for a downtown apartment (the most expensive downtown closed sale was the Walker Tower penthouse in 2014 for about $51 million; a penthouse unit at 443 Greenwich is currently in contract for $54 million), Ben Joseph of Related Companies told LLNYC in September that he is optimistic that he will be able to sell it.
“We have the best location, we have the best views, we think we have the best amenities, the best apartments and the best building. So we’re not particularly worried.”
The nicest part of this apartment, however, might very well be its neighbors; Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen reportedly bought in the building in August for $20 million.
