new with open house at 114 W 29

worth its own entry?
The “Penthouse” at 114 W 29 St is new this week, with the first showing at tomorrow’s open house. “1,500 sq ft” of open loft, asking $1.495mm and $1,342/mo.

The good news is that this is a no-detail-overlooked renovation with “the ultimate in luxurious modern design”, chef’s kitchen, spa bath, 25 feet of custom closets, 2 skylights. All that, and “too many details to list”.

The bad news is that it is 3 flights up the stairs and pretty darn narrow, at 17.5 feet, with plumbing (at least now) only at the south end, with essentially no walls (a true One Bed Wonder). I had been hoping to see private outdoor space in a “penthouse”, but the outdoor space is a (small) “semi-private” (?) roof deck. (In a 3-unit building, the lobby is probably “semi-private”, too.)

has The Market caught up?
This unit was offered through the same agent (Paula Manikowski, before she went to Corcoran) in 2005 at $1.425mm and $1.495mm without selling. Clearly, The Market was not ready for that price at that time.

visual trickery?
Is it just me, or do those ceilings look nowhere close to the “14 feet” advertised??

Open House Sunday Oct 28 from 12 – 2 PM
