The 157 Hudson Street apartment #1C does not call itself #1C. It is The Marble House. And the apartment, a 9,200-square-foot triplex in a 143-year-old Tribeca building, does not have a mere floor plan. It has a majestically magniloquent 27-page marketing booklet, which shouldn’t even be called a booklet. It is a peacock.
We’re shown the apartment’s Social Level (not pictured below, but the Grand Entrance Foyer has a remote-control chandelier lift; the Chef’s Kitchen can fit 35 people working “comfortably”; the Butler’s Pantry is wired for an espresso machine; and the Grand Hall is 59 feet long); the Private Level (floor plans show three potential configurations); and the Club Level (where the pool is called the Quarry Room and the theater is spelled “theatre”). But why are the triplex’s Valencia Suite, Bardiglio Suite and Carrara Bath thus named? Because of the marble that built them. (The Carrara is heated, just like the yellow pine in the Yellow Pine Room.)
Developer Stuart Parr, who co-manages Eminem’s film career, has listed the place for $24.5 million with Corcoran. — By Max Abelson
