Reach for the Summit

Why cram six penthouses into 12,000 square feet when you can create one monster dream home instead?

That's the question Joel Silver and Ethan Eldon, the developers behind Tribeca Summit, the conversion of the eight-story landmark warehouse at 415 Greenwich St., asked themselves recently. Silver mentions an automobile industry heir "who has a home on top of a building that's a duplex."

"It's out of this world, and we decided instead of building six units [the original plan for the space], why not build one dream home," says Silver.

So in the next month or so, while construction on the two-story addition (floors nine and 10) to the building is on hold due to the cold, the developers are shopping the mega-unit, which also includes 7,700 square feet of outdoor space, for $32.5 million.

And as a bonus, the buyer will have the opportunity to design the entire space.

"We are landmarked; the skeleton has to stay, but inside you could have six fireplaces, umpteen bathrooms, barbeque on the outside," says Silver.

Though there's been mention of the design-it-yourself offer expiring in "three weeks," we'd bet that if an offer comes in four or five or six weeks from now, well, that'll be OK. Karen Mansour at Prudential Douglas Elliman has the listing. — Katherine Dykstra
