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!
