When news broke last month that the Staple Street Skybridge in Tribeca was going on the market, few details had been released: we knew the agents in charge of the sale (Kaptan Unugur and Ryan Serhant of Nestseekers), the fact that it was occurring off-market, and a vague inkling of the price, which was said to be in the $30 million area. But lucky for real-estate voyeurs (and one-percenters with an eye on oddball real estate), the listing is now public, and it's higher than previously reported. The Wall Street Journal reveals that the unit—combining a one-bedroom at 60 Hudson Street, a townhouse at 9 Jay Street, and the historic skybridge—is going for a mind-blowing $50 million. "It's hard to price something like this," Unugur told the WSJ. "I don't think any such property has been offered on the market." The other details have remained much the same: There's more than 6,000 square feet of space (not including the bridge) that could be combined to create "a majestic five bedroom, five bathroom home," and 9 Jay Street even comes with commercial space. There are high ceilings, plenty of windows, and even a roof deck.
