Hedge funder buys in trendy Nolita in 2006 (one townhouse: $2.3 million), hires Chicago architect to renovate it, waits three years on the construction, and ends up with a 4,000-square-foot modern pad boasting a 17'-ceilinged living room, a roof deck with view of 1WTC, and a "catwalk" over the media room. Seems like a lot of effort to flip the place a scanty year later, though $16 million in the bank doesn't sound so bad. Such is the case with 35 Spring, whose sleek exteriors designed by Robert Han of Architecture Workshop 4B we admired late last summer.
The interior views present a lot of staircase action and look appropriately slick, if uninformative. Signing bonus? The occupied commercial space on the first floor rents for $225 per square foot.
