More luxe living is coming to Tribeca, the latest being the Laight House condominium from developer Kengo Watanabe. The construction cover has just come down at 52 Laight Street, revealing eight floors of old-style brick. What's seen is a more refined version of the render we showed back in 2009. The six pricey units at Laight House are well situated, standing directly across from the high priced Marble House at 60 Collister Street, and backing up to Winka Dubbledam's block o' stone-faced condos at V33 on Vestry Street. The real topper here is the brick-faced arcade, fronting a terrace that stretches the full width of the Laight House duplex penthouse, available for just $6,950,000.
Three bedrooms and three baths are spread across the top floor of the 2,761-square foot-penthouse, with a circular stair leading down to the main floor. There an open-plan great room fills the entire seventh floor, with three sets of French doors leading to the south-facing terrace. The other units fill a full floor each, all with three bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths and generally running near $3 million. The second floor unit has its own north-facing terrace, covering 1,134 square feet and adding a mere half million to the purchase price. Best of all, Laight House is located just a half block from the Holland Tunnel roundabout, so after a trip out of town residents will be home before they know it.
