A tipster has some harsh words for an apartment in newish Tribeca luxury tower 200 Chambers Street. The link to the $4.495 million listing arrived with the following description: "worst apartment I have ever seen." We're going to assume that's hyperbole, but it just goes to show that when an apartment is the most expensive listing in a luxury building (in this case by nearly $2 million at the moment), the daggers come out. Is this place really that bad? It's more just plain ol' weird, in our opinion.
For example, the wood-paneled study, which looks like it was airlifted from a Park Avenue co-op and dropped into the apartment. And the whole scene directly above, the oddest mix of fireplace, piano, candlelabra, big-screen TV and steampunk binoculars we've ever seen. The 3BR/3BA 2,200-square-foot apartment was bought by investor Rory Cutaia three years ago for $3.075 million, which you'll note is far less than what it is asking today. According to the listing, the space was a "blank canvas to this 21st century home. The current homeowners redesigned and reconfigured the space and spared no expense while doing so." Should they have spared some of that expense?
