Historic Tribeca Skybridge Yours For $30MM
If someone wants to sell you a bridge in Tribeca, they mean it.
The historic Staple Street skybridge is about to hit the market for around $30 million.
The price includes a spacious town house as well as the apartment to which it is connected by the 108-year-old walkway.
“Whoever buys this is really buying a piece of Tribeca history,” said broker Kaptan Unugur of The Serhant Team at Nestseekers International.
“It’s the only private skybridge for sale in the whole city.”
Unugur will be listing the package with broker Ryan Serhant, a star of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing New York.”
The footbridge is owned by fashion designer Zoran Ladicorbic, who has used it for three decades to commute from his third-floor, 1,900-square-foot apartment at 67 Hudson St. to his town-house office at 9 Jay St.
“It was the most unique commute in the city,” Unugur joked.
The town house, which is not landmarked, was originally a stable for horse-drawn ambulances.
Built in 1907, the bridge over the Staple Street alley was used to transport patients from the stable to a hospital clinic at 67 Hudson St.
At about 6,300 square feet, the town house is set up like an open loft and has 50 windows.
“It’s rare to have a town house like this on a corner block so it’s not squeezed in between other town houses,” Unugur said
The home, he added, comes with a large rooftop terrace with great views of the city.
In addition, the buyer will be able to build up an additional 1,800 square feet or so, Unugur said, to create a five-bedroom, five-bathroom home.
Taxes are $70,395 a year. Common charges are just under $1,500 a month.
Now one of the most expensive ZIP codes in the country, Tribeca was “not a safe place to live” when Ladicorbic moved there more than 30 years ago, the broker explained.
“He went through the whole Tribeca transition,” Unugur said.
