In 2010, kind-of-big-deal artist Matthew Day Jackson bought up a two-story warehouse in Greenpoint that had previously home to a "hipsteriffic" nightclub called Studio B. He shelled out $2 million for the property. After an extensive renovation that converted the ground floor into a studio and workroom and the upper floor into an airy apartment, all 15,000 square feet of 259 Banker Street is now for sale.
There is also a private gallery, office, separate eat in kitchen, freight elevator and indoor parking. Some of the other innumerable highlights of the loft above include: 12 ft ceilings with custom skylights, a chefs kitchen with Subzero, and Wolf appliances, central heat and ac, all new mechanicals, an indoor/outdoor patio with retractable roof, separate guest suite, and skyline views of Manhattan. The best part is definitely the massive playroom/yoga studio that's plastered with skylights. The ask? $11,000,000.
