158 Mercer Penthouse: 2 Floors, 3 Brokers...

From Harvey Weinstein's investing loss to André Balasz' ongoing attempts to unload his place in the building, the real estate intrigues at 158 Mercer Street in Soho never disappoint. Now comes the creme de la creme: the duplex penthouse in the building has hit the market for the first time ever. Notes our giddy tipster, "About 7,500 square feet of penthouse! About 3,000 more square feet of penthouse terrace! The interior does not unaccountably suck! So big, it takes two companies and three brokers!"

Sure enough, Sotheby's and Elliman appear to be cobrokering the listing, and to make a point about just how special this $26.5 million trophy is, each deployed their own photographers. Above, thrill to Sotheby's version on the left and Elliman's version on the right. We're giving the slight edge to Sotheby's on saturation alone—Soho lofts need to veritably glow, right? Plus bonus points for, in the finest Sotheby's tradition, not revealing the building address in its listing.
