A Tribeca penthouse is on the market for a hefty $150,000 a month — and that sky-high ask makes it the city’s priciest rental presently up for grabs, according to StreetEasy tallies.
The five-bedroom, 4½-bath perch is at 56 Leonard St.
That $150,000 monthly expense is just the baseline. A driver, a housekeeper, a chef and art rentals can be added for an additional cost, notes the listing from Douglas Elliman broker Timothy Melzer.
This listing comes on the heels of a Central Park-adjacent duplex listing for a cool $120,000 per month at Fasano Fifth Avenue, which remains among the most expensive available around town these days, as Gimme Shelter recently reported.
Across the East River, meanwhile, a number of pricey rental pads in Brooklyn have hit the market for record prices, though none of them in this six-figure range.
Back in Tribeca, this aerie’s pricing is puzzling. The home last asked $88,000 a month in 2021 — down significantly from its initial 2019 ask of a staggering $256,000 a month, StreetEasy also shows. The reason behind the rollercoaster history isn’t clear.
What’s for certain is the full-floor residence comes with two outdoor terraces and wide views of the city skyline, both rivers and multiple bridges.
There’s also a double-size living room, a chef’s kitchen, white oak floors, a woodburning 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 & de Meuron. Past and president 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.
