LLNYC’s Look at Listings
At 464 Greenwich Street, you'll find a townhouse with a $27.5 million price tag and an unusual façade. The Tribeca townhouse was built in 1892 by the builder Hugh Getty for Samuel Crooks, a wholesale coffee and tea merchant, who used the building as a roasting plant and its signage remains above the entrance.
The current owner is J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler, who bought the place in 2008 for $5.5 million. He commissioned the French architect Thierry Despont to redesign the residence into something less like a coffee warehouse (we would imagine) and more like a single-family home.
These days, the 9,000-square-foot spread comes with five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, a custom eat-in kitchen, a rooftop terrace, a gym, a sauna and commercial-sized elevator.
Drexler recently chopped almost $2.5 million from the asking price. Hopefully he'll have more luck selling this pad than his other Tribeca home at 140 Franklin Street, which has seen over $10 million chopped from its asking price since it was listed last year.
Fun/depressing fact, in 2002 the building was bought for the grand total of $365,000.
Jim St Andre and Shaun Osher of CORE have the listing.
