Noho just saw its most expensive listing hit the market. 40 Bond Street has a full-floor condo up for sale for $27 million—and it’s not the penthouse! In fact, it’s on the eighth floor right under the penthouse. A buyer could have 5,364 square feet. The apartment is divided into twelve rooms, which includes four bedrooms, but it has two offices that could probably be converted into more. Almost equal in size to the apartment is the lushly landscaped, 20-foot deep terrace designed by Jeff Mendoza. Accessible through six doors from multiple rooms, the terrace provides a great outdoor space, even though it has no noteworthy views. The rooms are flooded by light from the 11-foot floor-to-ceiling windows on both sides of the apartment. The living room features an active wood-burning fireplace.

The building was built by Ian Scrager and designed by Herzog de Meuron in 2006 and has a unique façade with a salient, graffiti-inspired cast-aluminum gate. Some love it, some hate it. The building has only 26 apartments and yet a wide range of amenities. Residents enjoy the use of a sauna, a steam room, a fitness center, a gallery, a valet service, a garden, a massage room, and much more.

The seller of this pad, William Kriegel, is the one who sold Jon Bon Jovi his 158 Mercer Street apartment, which Bon Jovi has also just recently listed. And not just that: William Kriegel actually bought the entire 158 Mercer Street building in order to get the penthouse.
