Additional apartment features include radiant floor heating, French herringbone oak flooring, a Crestron Home Automation System, a humidification system, and a ventilation system.

Completed in 1929, Walker Tower was an Art Deco-style office building before it was converted to a luxury condominium tower––with Mercier being one of the first buyers.

In 2014, a penthouse at Walker Tower set a record as the most expensive home sale ($50.9 million) in downtown Manhattan.

One of Mercier’s homes in Provence, an 18th-century castle, is for sale for €3.5 million ($4,075,575). She says she will keep a smaller residence in New York for when she visits.

The listing at 212 West 18th St. is held by Vickey Barron of the Corcoran Group.
