Ridiculous Open-Concept Luxury Loft in SoHo

Every couple months I’ll spend a night sifting through luxury properties for sale in New York City. It’s the only place in the world where you can easily find 50+ listings ranging from $5 million – $75 million at any given time. Understanding the density of Manhattan, it’s always fascinating how expensive a square foot can cost.

Most of the luxury units available are jaw-dropping condos or tall/skinny townhouses; many are conversions from old factories of the past. Last night I came across a unit for sale in the prestigious New Museum Building, located on 158 Mercer Street in SoHo.

Listed at $6.95 Million USD, it was the open-concept living space that really caught my attention. A 2,800 square foot “room” that serves as a kitchen, office, den, dining and living room. Absolutely incredible!



Listing price: $6.95 million usd
Size: 4,700 square feet (approx.)
Bedrooms: 5
Bathrooms: 4 full
Ceiling height: Over 11 feet
View: 17 oversize windows with views from all four exposures
Cost per square foot: $1,479

Love the pillar-wrapped bookshelves

The ‘boy reading book’ statue is a little creepy but the rug is shag-a-delic!


158 Mercer is a prestigious 12-story, 19-unit, pre-War condominium built in 1895 and converted in 1996. The New Museum Building is often mentioned as Downtown’s Top Ten buildings and was one of the first real full service buildings established in SoHo. The building features a 24hr doorman/concierge, two entrances with two separate elevator banks and a stunning rooftop deck. All of the apartments have typical loft layouts with high ceilings and large common-spaces to entertain with units ranging from 2500 – 9000 square feet.

A little too much stainless for me but I’ll still take it

Not Possibly the master BR?

A little heavy on the concrete in this bathroom methinks

Clearly not the master BR
