27 Mercer


Every detail of the Penthouse at 27 Mercer has been lovingly refurbished, from the cast iron columns & exposed beams to the light filled windows. These features, combined with luxurious finishes, custom fixtures and soaring ceilings, reimagine Manhattan living for the 21st century.

This apartment possesses 4,800 s.f. of interior space, 1680 s.f. of exterior space, 5-6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, and ceilings up to 12′ — all spread across 3 floors, which are accessible via the private elevator.

All throughout this triplex, one finds wide white oak hardwood floors, imported natural stone, and marble. The keyed elevator opens up to the unit’s own private foyers, from which point one accesses the Entertaining, Living, & Recreational floors.

The Second Floor, which is primarily for entertaining, has Living Room, Kitchen, Dining Room, Great Room, and Outdoor Courtyard. The Kitchen is outfitted with Gaggenau appliances, custom cabinetry, and Dornbracht faucet. In the living room, one finds the integrated gas fireplace, wide plank hardwood floors, and courtyard facing windows made by Fleetwood. Sunlight pours into this floor from the Courtyard, East facing Great Room windows, and West facing Living Room windows.

The Third Floor, which is primarily for living, has Master Suite, 3 additional bedrooms, 4 en-suite bathrooms, and 1 powder room. Twin walk-in closets, hardwood floors, and soaring ceilings accompany the master bedroom, whereas the en-suite master bathroom has Vola faucets, a Toto commode, free-standing soaking tub, book-matched marble, and heated floors / towel rails. In the Second, Third, and Fourth Bathrooms, which are en-suite, one finds Vola faucets, heated floors, and integrated lighting; the Powder Room has the same, with the addition of an imported marble vanity.

The Fourth Floor, which is primarily for recreation, has dueling terraces, a family room, and wet-bar.

Some of the unit’s other features include a 24-7 Virtual doorman, central AC with controls for each room, new dedicated boiler & mechanicals, and a utility room with washer and dryer. The apartment’s tech can be digitally controlled by iPad, iPhone, or other mobile.

Built in 1867, 27 Mercer represents the architectural beauty of New York’s elegant Gilded Age. Five exclusive residences, ranging from a townhouse, to lofts, to a penthouse, offer a modern interpretation of the classic Soho loft building, balancing perfectly restored cast iron detailing with sophisticated modern design. Close to dining, cafes, fashion, parks & play, retail, and arts & culture, this building within the fabled SoHo Cast Iron Historic District is one of the most desirable locations.
