A $9 Million Manhattan Loft Conversion

Greenwich 1 architecture

This Greenwich Street loft building in Lower Manhattan is one of two supposedly¬† “Spectacular” Lofts for Sale in Tribeca, my old neighborhood in New York.

Both are interesting as examples of how the super rich have converged on a former artists neighborhood in New York and made it their own.

Of course, it helps that it is just a brisk walk to Wall Street from here.

So this is what you get for $9 million in Tribeca now.

This looks much less glitzy than the loft upstairs, much more tastefully executed – but it is decidedly housing for the 1%.

This 3,616 square foot, four bedroom, 4 bath, floor loft, (with private key locked elevator, of course!) is available on the 8th floor.

The detailing is a lot cleaner and more sophisticated than the one upstairs. I do like the floor to ceiling sliding door… or should I say sliding wall.

Greenwich 3 architecture

It is odd to see the familiar Tribeca view framed in such a lavish loft…

Greenwich 8 architecture

… and I can almost hear the sudden hissing of the steam pipes in the middle of the night.

I wonder if it troubles those who have spent $9 million to live in a converted Manhattan loft?

When these buildings were originally constructed America was in the throes of a Gilded Age, when robber barons controlled the nearly all the nation’s wealth.

Now we seem to have come full circle to a time when the few live like kings.

    Yeesh, spare us, 'kay? I thought this was a design blog, not a repository for kneejerk sophomoric socio-economic commentary befitting a tenured lower-tier community college sociology prof stuck in the 1970s.

    Ah well, I needed to par down my RSS feed anyway.

    I'm with the earlier poster (whatever they said); what's with the us and them attitude? Maybe more about the architecture and design and less about you missing out on living the dream and we can understand where this building is going.
