Tribeca townhouse with iconic skybridge sells for $24M

It took seven long years, but a Tribeca townhouse that comes with its own 115-year-old skybridge has sold for $24 million in an off-market deal — less than half its original ask.

The unusual home, built in 1907 and today a popular destination for Instagram uploads, first hit the market for an astounding $50 million in 2015, and was last asking $26 million. 

At 25 feet wide, the three-story townhouse, at 9 Jay St., connects to a 2,300-square-foot condo at 67 Hudson St. that was also part of the deal. 

The seller, fashion designer Zoran Ladicorbic, traveled from the condo via the bridge to his office in the townhouse and once joked that it was the most unique commute in the city. “This has been a labor of love,” said listing broker Kaptan Unugur, of Sotheby’s International Realty, who first listed the property when he was at another brokerage back in 2015.

“Whoever buys this is really buying a piece of Tribeca history,” Unugur told Gimme Shelter back in 2015. “It’s the only private skybridge for sale in the whole city.” 

The skybridge was originally used to transport patients to a hospital clinic at 67 Hudson St. — as both buildings were once part of New York Hospital.

Back then, the townhouse was the ambulance center and the skybridge was built to transfer patients between wards, according to Sotheby’s.

At around 6,300 square feet, the townhouse is currently configured as an open-space loft, lit up by 50 windows.

It comes with a large, 1,200-square-foot rooftop terrace — and around 4,000 square feet of air rights. There’s also a garage and two coveted curb cuts.

The buyer, who declined to be interviewed, also found the live-work situation appealing.

“It’s a special, iconic property, and it’s synonymous with Tribeca. People come here to photograph it,” Unugur said.
