55 Greene Street Soho Loft Sells for $2.95M
Ad agency photographer Ira Lerner just sold his Soho penthouse loft at 55 Greene Street for $2.95 million.
The buyer is Stanislaus Nicholas Poniatowski
Multiple reductions in price occurred after the loft first hit the market in April 2009 for an asking price of $3,995,000. A 25% price drop on a $4 million loft is incredible, but also not surprising in today’s market.
Prudential Elliman broker Patty LaRocco had the exclusive.
The co-op apartment is located in the historic Gunther Building at 55 Greene Street.
The 2,600 sq. ft. 5-room loft has a corner view overlooking Greene and Broome Streets. Here you can see the loft’s 2 skylights in the northeast corner of 55 Greene Street’s 6,000 sq. ft. spectacular common roof deck for shareholders:
The cavernous space has 17-foot high ceilings, living room and common area that is wonderful for entertaining, and located in a top-notch building.
The huge space receives light from the north, east, and partially from the west.
Here is a look at prices, current and former shareholders at 55 Greene Street:
- Lenny Kravitz and ex-wife Lisa Bonet formerly lived in the building when they bought in 1989
- Daniel Wheeler of Dimension Fund Advisors paid $2.5 million for a 4th floor loft in 2007
- Architects Beyhan Karahan and Jon Michael Schwarting bought a loft in the building in 1994. Karahan’s firm did architectural restoration of the building’s facade.
