Tribeca Apartment With Dramatic Rotunda
This penthouse in the historic American Thread Building features a special room unlike any other.
This pre-war penthouse on the northern edge of Tribeca is noteworthy on many levels. The open-plan living room is sunny and sprawling. Each of the two bedrooms comes with an ensuite bathroom fit for a king. It’s located in the historic American Thread Building, home to the New York Wool Exchange in the early 1900s. The detail that won us over, however, is the unusual 28-foot diameter rotunda with a 25-foot ceiling and dramatic stained glass skylight to boot. With no designated use, the possibilities for this room are endless. A stately home office? Yoga room? Home theater? Library? Back in the 1970s, the dance group Multigravitational Aerodance apparently used it as a rehearsal studio. Douglas Elliman lists the home at $10,500,000.
