Back in the heady days of 2007, a cabana, just a cabana, at the Jean Nouvel-designed 40 Mercer would cost a buyer $350,000. Unit 5G is a lot bigger than a cabana. It is nearly 1,800 square feet and the only unit in the building to feature both ruby red and blue glass. The 2BR/2.5BA is listing for $3.5 million (only 10 cabanas!), with each bedroom featuring its own library/office space. There's a discrete entrance on Mercer Street and private underground parking. We would be as indiscreet as possible if we lived here.
