The Tulip Building, 421 Broome Street, New York, United States
New York architectural firm A+M+L Architecture and Scordio Construction spent four years gutting and redesigning an 8,000 square foot penthouse in New York’s landmark Tulip Building. Following the extensive redesign, the penthouse hit the market in 2018 for $65 million and with no takers, was reduced a handful of times to the current asking price of $44 million. The penthouse occupies four stories of a historic cast iron facade structure originally designed by Griffith Thomas and built in 1873. There is 8,000 square feet of interior space and an additional 4,000 square feet of outdoor space across six separate terraces with outdoor brick fireplace, jacuzzi and hotel style steel and glass canopy. Dramatic living spaces include a top floor great room with 15-foot ceilings, two skylights and six oversized arched windows all anchored by two massive wood-burning fireplaces. There is also a brand new professional kitchen with 20-foot brick barrel-vaulted ceiling, an 86-inch range, wood-burning fireplace and two butler’s pantries. Encased in a La Forge bronze stair railing, a Chesney cantilevered black marble staircase leads to a master level with his and hers bathrooms. There are a total of 4 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. According to Curbed NY, the penthouse last sold in 2011 for $17 million, it is also the same building that Heath Ledger rented a unit in for $23,000/month. The property is on the market for $43,750,000 with Douglas Elliman. Monthly maintenance fees are $23,460 and monthly real estate tax is $15,731.
