Yet another building is looking to join in on New York City’s megamansion craze; a six-story building located at the border of the Meatpacking District and the West Village has come on the market for a staggering $75 million.
6sqft first reported on the listing, which is located at 799 Washington Street, and is partly used as a film studio, at present. Other parts of the building are also set up for commercial space, and the top floor has a residential penthouse with a rooftop lawn, and a two-story glass solarium. The building features soaring ceiling heights, large windows, and has parking for multiple vehicles.
This 23,000-square-foot building last sold in 1997 for just $2 million, according to the property records. This was long before the opening of the High Line, and the general development in this area, so the owner clearly waited for the right opportunity to sell the building.
Sotheby’s International Realty is the brokerage firm on the property and is pitching it as single-family home, among other suggestions. They’ve also suggested conversions to an apartment building, a co-working or a live/work space, and a boutique hotel. If it does in fact become a megamansion, it will join the planned megamansions of Sarah Jessica Parker, a telecom billionaire, and a hedge funder, all in the West Village.
