Birkenstock’s Rustic NYC Penthouse Is Up For Grabs

According to Architectural Digest, Alexander Birkenstock (a member of the family that owns the internationally beloved German footwear brand) has put his 30th-floor Financial District penthouse on the market.

Inside, wood-beamed ceilings imported from the former Portuguese embassy in Paris frame the space, giving it an airy, authentic ambiance that feels more Colorado-country than downtown New York City. And it’s a likewise feeling in the bathroom, where a wall of Belgian bluestone tiles and a Mexican stone tub sit in waiting. There’s also a Jacuzzi in the master suite, as well as a sauna, floor-to-ceiling wine refrigerators and breathtaking Art Deco-inspired stainless-steel kitchen doors, crafted circa the 1920s. Exposed brick, pressed-tin ceilings and herringbone wood floors only cater to the penthouse’s loft-like feel.

But the penthouse isn’t just stunning from the inside; it also features 50 feet of south-facing windows that provide unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan, the outer boroughs, New York Harbor and the Hudson River.

Platinum Properties NYC is currently showing the Broad Street Birkenstock loft, with an asking price starting at nearly $13 million.
