The late starchitect Philip Johnson certainly wasn't one for embellishment. His most famous masterpiece, the Glass House in New Canaan, Conn., somehow managed to be both minimalist and unique. This Tribeca loft? Not so much. Converted to condos in 2001, four years before Johnson's death, the Textile Building at 66 Leonard Street was designed with the assistance of Johnson's partner Alan Ritchie. In design, it's a plain jane Tribeca loft, but on a grand scale. The living room measures 52-feet long and there's space for a formal dining room and five bedrooms in the nearly 5,700-square-foot space. That much space in this location isn't going to come cheap, and it doesn't, at almost $9M, but it's a modest bargain next to the building's 7,200-square-foot penthouse, which is currently listed for $27.5M.
