West Village’s massive The Greenwich Lane unveils posh $25M townhouse

The townhouse is one of just six units left up for grabs at the 200-dwelling project

The Greenwich Lane, the massive five-building, five-townhouse Greenwich Village development rising on the former site of St. Vincent’s Hospital, just unveiled the first of its completed townhouses, and the highly tailored $25 million digs do not disappoint.

The brick and limestone townhouse at 135 West 11th Street—one of just six units still available at the 200-dwelling project—offers a gasp-worthy 7,000 square feet of interior space, plus 1,200 square feet of outdoor space featuring a private garden that opens onto The Greenwich Lane’s 14,000-square-foot courtyard.

Designed by Rafael de Cárdenas “around the principle of a vertical chromatic temperature gradient,” the palatial home is loaded with luxe details, including, though hardly limited to: marble mosaic flooring in the foyer; a garden-facing library; an eat-in kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, custom-paneled cabinets, slab marble countertops; and a floor-to-ceiling glass Nano Wall opening out into the garden.

The second level houses the main entertaining area, with a formal dining room and a sprawling living room with Juliet balconies, while the third story, done up in subdued grays, houses the full-floor master suite. The fourth floor has three more bedrooms—all with en-suite baths—and the penthouse level features a media room/fifth bedroom space, as well as assorted private terraces, a sunroom with a wet bar, and a gas grill.

The real excitement, though, is in the cellar, which boasts a locked room for garbage drop-off and package delivery (never leave the house again!), and a door leading to the TGL’s underground network of swanky amenities, from parking to an Olympic-length swimming pool to a golf simulator.

The townhome also comes with some very famous neighbors: Michael Kors, Tamara Mellon, and Michael C. Hall have all picked up units in the complex, as has Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who recently invested in a low-key $40.04 million duplex penthouse.
