It’s a big day for 56 Leonard Street: One of its pricey penthouses officially sold, breaking a record in the process, while another enormous unit just hit the market with an asking price that could shatter that newly-set record.
Let’s start with the sale: The Real Deal reports that PH60, which was in contract for $47 million, is now officially sold—and the buyer, who’s shielded behind an LLC, paid a bit more than the asking price. The precise closing price was $47,866,945.06, which a spokesperson for the building says is the most expensive closed sale below 14th Street. (It certainly bests the $44 million penthouse at 443 Greenwich Street that closed earlier this year.)
And now, onto the listing: Back in 2016, an investor snagged two penthouses—53 and 54—for a combined $56 million, and now, the two apartments have appeared as one mega-unit asking $65 million. Spread out over an astounding 12,000 square feet of space, “the ultimate trophy duplex penthouse” (per the brokerbabble) comes with eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, two wood-burning fireplaces, and six terraces. And that’s just scratching the surface: there are also a plethora of closets, luxe finishes, and other amenities.
The combo unit can now count itself as one of Tribeca’s two priciest properties; the other, a penthouse at Robert A.M. Stern’s 70 Vestry, is still on the market for $65 million.
