This building, on New York City’s Hubert Street in the Tribeca neighborhood, is known for loft-style living with boutique white-glove service, which naturally attracts the wolves of Wall Street. In fact, one of the characters in the movie was based on a resident of this building, Alan Wilzig, who bought his three-bedroom apartment for $3.3 million in the mid-2000s. (A maisonette is an apartment with its own private entrance.)
But back in 1866, long before Wall Street’s bigwigs considered living so close to their offices, this site was occupied by the American Express Company. The current building, designed by BKSK Architects, was built in 2003, an hosts 33 units across 16 floors.
This condo, on the market for $4.25 million, is owned by another Wall Street guy — attorney and financier Brandon Greenblatt. It’s available via Lauren Schaffer, Heather Cella, Rae McKee, and Will Apicella at The Agency.
Offering gracious proportions, north and east exposures, 11’ ceilings, and stunning floor-to-ceiling casement windows, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom loft floods its 1,787 square feet with air and light. The open kitchen with Poggenpohl cabinetry, absolute black honed granite countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances overlooks the living and dining areas, making for elegant, modern entertaining.
One wing features a large primary bedroom suite, complete with a wall of custom closets, another walk-in closet, and a bathroom with Bottocino marble slab floors, limestone tiles, and rift oak double-sink floating vanity with silver vein cut honed travertine counters. The second bedroom could serve as a bedroom, nursery or home office, while the second full bathroom can easily be utilized as an en-suite bath or guest bath, depending on your needs.
An in-unit washer/dryer, central air, vented stove top, electronic window shades, Sonos surround sound system, recessed lighting, built-in media center, and plenty of custom storage throughout complete this space. Thoughtful updates have been made throughout the home over time.
As for the building itself, The Hubert boasts a full-time staff of doormen and porters, a live-in super, fully equipped fitness center, bike storage room, children’s playroom, and common landscaped garden. Pet friendly, it is located near downtown’s finest restaurants, the beautiful Hudson River Park, and chic furniture and design shops, all which contribute to the appeal of historic Tribeca.
