The Edge sold out earlier this year, so it's time to usher in the era of resales. Two units are currently on the market in the project's north tower, one of which is a 2,100-square-foot duplex penthouse asking $3.25 million. Peter Jenkins, and executive at the consulting firm Booz & Company and co-founder of the independent label Stranger Records, purchased the lofty home in 2011 for $2.16 million. To makeover the bland box, he hired sister designers Hollister and Porter Hovey (who wears many hats?she's also a photographer and one of the Halstead brokers on the listing). Jenkins' home was the Hoveys' first design job, and they decked out the 3BR/3BA with a "Proustian approach" that incorporates "unexpected details like a World War II-era radio-frequency signal generator in the master bedroom."
Unfortunately for the new buyer, the cool decor doesn't come with the place. The broker sent word that the decor could be negotiated into the sale: "Peter is flexible on including the sale of the furniture with the apartment." It does have huge windows, a 611-square-foot terrace, and pretty fantastic views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. The first floor has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large open kitchen, plus the double-height living space and terrace, while the second-floor master suite has a study, balcony, and large walk-in closet.
