Heidi Klum has a new perch over Soho, and it’s not on a billboard. The New York Observer reports the supermodel has purchased a 4,800-square-foot Soho loft. The sale closed in late February for $5.1 million, but flew under the radar with Klum’s (admittedly obvious) use of the LLC Hk East Coast.
That said, Klum has a lot to work with: The apartment is 40-feet wide by 125-feet deep and comes with 12-foot ceilings plus the added bonus of deeded skylight rights. The loft wasn’t sold with outdoor space, but Klum has the option of purchasing roof rights from the co-op and creating her own rooftop perch.
The apartment served as an artist’s studio for the last 30 years, and currently goes without bedrooms, a kitchen, or bathrooms. Lucky for Klum the folks at Compass who sold the apartment commissioned some concept renderings of what the loft can look like after a thorough renovation, showing an airy open kitchen and seating areas and a lush rooftop terrace.
If the perfectly manicured Brentwood, Los Angeles home that Klum sold for $24 million in 2014 is any indicator, this loft will be photo-ready in no time.
