(New York, NY) — The supermodel, fashion designer, and “Project Runway” cohost, Heidi Klum, is making her way downtown!
Her new downtown Manhattan penthouse cashed in at a whopping $5.1 million and is located atop a SoHo loft building. However, Heidi’s new humble abode is far from move-in ready. This fixer-upper was used as an art studio by its previous owner and is now a 5,000-square-foot blank canvas, leaving Heidi with an array of design options.
What features does this blank canvas have to offer?
The stunning penthouse includes wood columns with octagonal bases, exposed wood beams, and 12-foot-high ceilings, as well as a stunning view of 56 Leonard Street (the Jenga Tower) and the World Trade Center.
A history of celebrities?
The building has a history of big shot names. A fifth floor loft used to belong to photographer Cindy Sherman. The approximately 4,100-square-foot loft was used as a photography studio before being sold in 2005 for approximately $4.6 million to Hank Azaria.
Azaria then sold the loft for $8 million to Meg Ryan, star of “Sleepless in Seattle,” who went on to sell the space for a jaw dropping $9.8 million.
What to expect?
Heidi, while spending most of her time with her family in her $10 million Bel-Air mansion, seems to be looking to spend more time in NYC. While there is some speculation about the penthouse being an office for the model, there is news of plans to renovate the rooftop, turning it into the ultimate rooftop oasis.
When is the housewarming party, Heidi?
