The NYC Condo Next Door To Taylor Swift Is On Sale For $6 Million

Following in her grandmother's footsteps, Taylor Swift started her singing career when she was ten years old. She started out singing at local events, fairs, and contests. By the age of twelve, she was even writing her own songs. After a performance at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee, she managed to get contracted by Scott Borchetta's Big Machine Records. Her name and songs only grew more and more popular from there. In 2012, she became the highest-paid celebrity under thirty years old, earning around $57 million, according to Biography. Today, Taylor Swift has a net worth of approximately $80 million, making her one of the highest-paid musicians in the U.S., according to Rolling Stone.

Amongst her ever-growing fame, Taylor Swift has also become a major real estate investor. According to New York Post, throughout the years, she has spent approximately $50 million on a single small block in the New York City neighborhood of Tribeca. She purchased three units in this area on 155 Franklin Street, not far from her $18 million townhouse on 153 Franklin Street. Next door to one of Taylor Swift's Tribeca condos, another unit just went on sale for $6.25 million (per New York Post). Is Taylor Swift getting a new neighbor, or will she also invest in this unit? Here's is what we know about the available condo.

Around the condo

The condo is located in the Sugar Loaf Building on 155 Franklin Street in Tribeca, New York City. In this same building, Taylor Swift owns the duplex penthouse as well as half of the second floor. This unit takes up the other half of the second floor, directly next to Taylor Swift's condo.

The neighborhood of Tribeca was once the location for major industrial warehouses but now has turned into a major celebrity-owned area. NYC: The Official Guide mentioned that this New York City neighborhood has a number of notable features that make it attractive to celebrities, as well as other people seeking luxury living. The neighborhood provides a beautiful view of the Hudson River, as it is located on its western border and has a variety of notable restaurants and hotels scattered about. Unlike other New York City areas, Tribeca is also known for its calm elegance, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of common New York City life (per Compass).

Inside the condo

New York Post informed that the Tribeca condo has a total of 2,438 square feet of space and consists of three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The entire condo takes up half of the entire second floor; Taylor Swift's condo takes up the other half. It is a classic loft that presents a large entrance leading to an open kitchen area. The kitchen is set with a variety of kitchen appliances and even has an attached breakfast bar. Surrounding the kitchen is an open space surrounded by massive windows on the southern and easter sides of the condo. This open space includes a dining area and an entertainment area (per Corcoran).

The condo has a total of eleven massive windows, allowing the perfect amount of natural light into the unit (per Corcoran). The master bedroom, also lined with these windows, provides plenty of storage space for residents. The adjacent bathroom has a double vanity, perfect for two users, along with a soaking bathtub and rainwater shower.

Origin of the condo

The Sugar Loaf Building, in which the condo is located, dates back to 1882. It is a pre-war building, which means it was built prior to the second world war. It started out as a storage warehouse with seven floors and ten units, according to City Reality. The building was converted to living spaces in 1996, providing ten residential units. Although much of the building was renovated over the years, pieces of its original detail still remain throughout the residential living area.

The face of the building still has its original cast-iron detail and metal canopied entrance. A freight-sized elevator, traditionally used for large shipments, is also still present inside the building (per Corcoran). New York Post stated that some of the original features of the building are also seen in the inside design of the condos, for example, the exposed brick walls and beamed ceilings. The condos are also covered in hardwood floors and have steel beams positioned throughout the units.
