Last weekend, Mike Piazza finally found a buyer for his Tribeca apartment. The open concept, light-filled duplex boasts sleek lines, sweeping river views, three outdoor spaces and such built-in architectural highlights as a steel staircase that is literally suspended in midair like a work of modern art. The 161 Hudson Street location was originally constructed a century ago as a commercial building, but was converted to loft apartments in 2004 by renowned architects Stas Zakrzewshi, Marianne Hyde, and Claudia Kianoury. The building features 24 condos.
When the 3,012-square-foot two-bedroom went on the market on July 7, 2008, the asking price was $6.8 million, though it was reduced that November to $6.5 million. But, after three grueling years on the market, the apartment sold for $4.58 million, just $360,000 more than Piazza paid for it in 2004.
