With a $49.5 million dollar price tag, this classic limestone loft mansion in Tribeca is a New Yorker's dream. Space is hard to find in a Manhattan apartment and this building offers 30,000 square feet of it. Although it was built in 1862, the entire building was gutted and renovated both cosmetically and structurally. The historic charm of the property was retained, yet the design incorporated modern style and conveniences, like an elevator and basement basketball court and gym. The opulence and style of the loft mansion are undeniable and it has an astonishing six floors above ground and two floors below of living and commercial space, not to mention a rooftop terrace. It isn't clear whether the building will be converted into more practical condos or kept as an outlandish single family home but the work that Studio Rivelli Architects
put into this renovation is indeed breathtaking.
