The Glass Cube Penthouse

Own a large and highly profitable window washing company? Boy, is this the apartment for you. The 7,500-square-foot glass cube penthouse sits atop a historic Art Deco loft building in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood and is wrapped with a private 4,500-square-foot terrace. The 360° views, thanks to 18-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, can be enjoyed both inside and out and the glass used for those walls is described as “museum quality, high-performance, insulated glass.” While we’re not sure what qualifies sheets of glass for a museum, the broker is certainly looking to reassure potential buyers that this place won’t be a greenhouse in the summer and/or a heat sink in the winter. The price for this four-bedroom residential version of an Apple Store is $48M

On the entertainment/first level, the Living Room boasts 18 foot ceilings and features a floor-to-ceiling plain-sawn cherry wood hearth which contains a wood burning fireplace (one of three fireplaces in this residence.) The Kitchen features top of the line fixtures and appliances with custom white lacquer cabinets and bluestone counters. Museum-quality polished concrete flooring and teak flooring are featured throughout this level, extending seamlessly to the outside terraces.

Oversized glass sliding doors open from all rooms on this level to the incomparable terrace, with a state-of-the-art outdoor stainless steel kitchen located on the southwest corner and a hot tub and private outdoor shower located on the northwest corner. The entire north, east, and south terraces boast wide open spaces, including a dining area off the Kitchen and Dining Room. Restored parapets of the original historic building provide both refined style and privacy without interrupting the cinematic city skyline and Hudson River views.

A steel and glass elliptical staircase is one of two stairways that connect the entertaining floor to the very private bedroom suites on the second level. All Bedrooms have luxurious en-suite baths, large closets, and each highlight beautiful vistas of the city. The Master Bedroom features extraordinary views of the mighty Hudson, endless closets and a bathroom that features honey colored onyx bath and steam shower, Jacuzzi and sauna.

Other notable features include hand troweled plaster walls and ceilings featured throughout, Lutron self-adjusting light and shade systems, state-of-the- art security system, climate-control system, and walls that allow artwork to be hung without fear of damage from sunlight.
