One Tribeca Penthouse is on the market for $150,000 a month, according to StreetEasy tallies — and skyrocketing demand makes it the city’s most expensive rent.
The five-bedroom, 4½-bath perch is at 56 Leonard St.
That $150,000 monthly expense is just a baseline. A driver, a housekeeper, a chef and art rentals can be added for an additional cost, notes Douglas Elliman broker Timothy Melzer listing the listing.
this listing comes to heel A Central Park-adjacent duplex listing for $120,000 per month on Fasano Fifth Avenue is one of the most expensive available around town these days, as Gimme Shelter recently reported.
Meanwhile, across the East River, many expensive rental pads in Brooklyn hit the market at record pricesThough none of them are in this six-figure range.
Back in Tribeca, the pricing of this aerie is puzzling. The home last asked for $88,000 a month in 2021 – significantly less than its initial 2019 asking price of $256,000 a month, StreetEasy also shows. The reason behind the rollercoaster history is unclear.
What’s for sure is that the full-floor residence comes with two outdoor terraces and expansive views of the city skyline, both rivers, and several bridges.
There’s also a double-size living room, a chef’s kitchen, white oak floors, a wood fireplace, a private roof deck, and 14-foot ceilings.
The ultra-luxury unit is one of 10 full-floor penthouses in the 56-story, 821-foot-tall building. Designed by Swiss starchitect firm Herzog and de Meuron. Past and presidential residents include musician Frank Ocean and actor Keegan-Michael Key.
Amenities for the building include a gym, a 75-foot infinity pool, a hot tub, two movie screening rooms, and a children’s playroom.
