Richard Serra’s new Tribeca home is big, but we’re not sure it’s quite big enough to house one of his magnificent — and gigantic — art projects.

The contemporary artist just picked up a full-floor unit at 173 Duane Street in Tribeca for $7 million, according to city records. It now seems that he owns the entire building (per 6sqft). He and his wife Clara most recently bought a third floor unit in 2011 for a little under $4 million.

This new pad is 4,200 square feet and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with 11-foot ceilings in the living room and an extra room the listing suggests can be a “gym/yoga room.” There’s also a massive studio space in the apartment, which we’re sure was a draw for him. Joshua Gurwitz and Tiffany Sessa of Good Property had the listing.

Serra is best known for sculptures he makes using sheet metal and his work has been featured in many of the world’s greatest museums, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim.
