This $45M Tribeca penthouse can be your very own art museum in the sky

One problem that only the very rich have to deal with is owning a ton of art and having no place to put it all.

Well this $45 million penthouse at the Skylofts building at 145 Hudson Street in Tribeca might just be the ideal place for a flashy art collector to store his/her most prized pieces. That’s what its current owner, investor William Duke, has done with it; he bought it for $30.5 million in 2009 (a downtown record at the time), never lived in it but used it to display his extensive art collection.

As such, all of the windows are coated in UV high-performance, museum-quality insulated glass that can protect your Monets and Jeff Koons’ from fading. The 7,500-square-foot apartment also has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, three personal parking spaces, 18-foot ceilings, three fireplaces, a private outdoor area, a library, a steel and glass elliptical staircase, a jacuzzi and steam room. It was designed by James Carpenter, the same architect who designed 7 World Trade Center.

The home has been on and off the market since 2011, when Duke first listed it for $48 million. It has since fluctuated between $44 million and $48 million, and was last listed in 2015 for $48 million. [Curbed]
