A new listing has hit the market at Ian Schrager's 160 Leroy Street in the West Village. The 7,750 SF penthouse is spread over 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and is listed for $48.5 million, making it currently the most expensive listing in the West Village. The unit also includes a private outdoor pool and 4 wood-burning fireplaces. It is listed with Madeline Hult Elghanayan, Lauren Muss, Kirk Rundhaug and Dennis Mangone of Douglas Elliman. 160 Leroy is reportedly 50% sold and another penthouse unit is expected to ask between $75 and $80 million. The waterfront building was designed by Pritzker Prize winning architects Herzog & de Meuron, inspired by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer's philosophy:
"I am not attracted to straight angles or to the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. I am attracted to free-flowing, sensual curves. The curves that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuousness of its rivers, in the waves of the ocean, and on the body of the beloved woman. Curves make up the entire Universe." - Oscar Niemeyer
160 Leroy will feature 57 condo units that were designed for modern lifestyles with open floor-plans with family life in mind. Units will feature panoramic views of the Hudson River, Freedom Tower and George Washington Bridge with tons of wall space for art collectors to display their collections. Residences will also feature private elevators, 11-foot to 13-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass to maximize light.
"The only thing that mattered to me was to turn a residential apartment into a real home. I sought to capture the details of life in the details of the architecture," says Schrager.
Amenities include a private courtyard and garden by landscape designer Madison Cox, full-time concierge, 24-hour doorman and porter, onsite resident manager, 70' pool and whirlpool spa with floor-to-ceiling glass, state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studio, steam room and sauna, private massage rooms, recreation lounge and parking spaces availible for purchase.
