A Tribeca loft that last sold for $6.211 million in April 2014 is about to reappear on the market, sporting a multi-million dollar renovation and a major price bump. The apartment in question is condo 3A at 137 Duane Street, a sprawling 5,800-square-foot three-bedroom loft that’s coming to market with John Gomes and Fredrik Eklund for $15 million.
Included in the new asking price is a major renovation—see the loft before, here—by Stephen Fanuka, otherwise known as HGTV’s Million Dollar Contractor. Fanuka oversaw a renovation that streamlined the condos look by hiding ductwork and highlighting its original architectural columns while also bringing the apartment an entirely new kitchen, wide-plank ash flooring, and an impressive fireplace surrounded by mammoth slab of book-matched marble (to name a few upgrades.)
The fireplace surround is almost as eye-catching as the owners’ collection of art, including work by Alex Katz and other contemporary masters. The art is supposed to take center stage here: The owners purchased and renovated the space with a focus on how their large-scale art collection could be displayed.
