One of the pricey penthouses within Herzog & de Meuron’s cascading Tribeca tower, 56 Leonard, has returned to the market after selling just a month ago for $21.8 million. The original asking price was $27.5 million, and now, the current owner is looking to get close to that—they’re attempting to flip it for $28 million. Is it buyer’s remorse, or an investor simply looking to make more cash? Almost certainly the latter, but who knows for sure, really?
This isn’t the first time that a penthouse within the Jenga-like tower has reappeared on the market just weeks after closing. An apartment on the 53rd floor sold earlier this year for just over $29 million, before returning to the market for a substantial price increase—it’s still available for $35 million. That buyer was also concealed behind an LLC.
As for the important stuff, the 5,186-square-foot apartment features four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and a massive open living and dining room surrounded by dramatic columns and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that provide breathtaking views of the city.
