This new-to-market listing at 84 Mercer Street clocks in at a whopping 9,427 square feet, according to the brokerbabble, which makes it the city's largest available single-floor listing. At first we assumed the owners simply didn't know what to do with all that space and so took the "turn it into an art gallery" approach?there's even a 51' by 20' painting storage/archives room. But according to The Real Deal, the place belongs to the mother of art dealer Charles Cowles, who operates a private gallery from the apartment. Ma Cowles is asking $7.95 million for it.
The apartment was for sale in 2009 at a much higher price?$15 million. (We checked in on it after the price had been cut to $10.25M.) The brokerbabble's making the most of the lower price this time around: "At less than $850/sf this is an opportunity rarer than Haley's Comet!" And, bonus for non-artistic rich folk, "No Artist's Certification required. Ever."
