The privileged class of renters or ‘super renters’ who are willing to shell out multi-thousand dollars per month to be able to live in ultra-luxury and style can now rent the renowned American fashion designer Mark Jacobs 40 Mercer Street Condo for $37,500 a month. This 2,476-sq.ft impeccably-furnished loft residence in the 14-storey building built in collaboration between hotel visionaire Andre Balazs and famed architect Jean Nouvel, and is defined to be an extraordinary testament to modern luxury, elegance, progressive architecture, and ingenious engineering, will be available for rent starting this March 1st. Boasting expansive, free-flowing spaces, floor-to-ceiling windows facing South and West, this three-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom condo with a powder room, was the rental home of the 49-year old designer in year 2009, when he use to stay with his then boyfriend Lorenzo Martone. Even UK's richest teen Daniel Radcliffe purchased a $4.3 million condo in this very same building, and immediately made it available for rental at $20,000.
Location - The apartment is located on a building in 40 Mercer Street, NY. Ironically, the building is named after this street. And to be more precise, the residential apartment building is located on the corner of Broadway and Grand streets in the SoHo district of Manhattan.
Mr Jacobs who’s now the new creative director of the Diet Coke and went shirtless for an Ad for the beverage giant, has primary residence in France, and will be moving back to the West Village townhouse, which was unfortunately flooded by hurricane Sandy.
This wonderful residence notably features custom kitchen and bathrooms that incorporate the most luxurious finishes, fittings and appliances, along with custom-designed cabinetry and lighting.
Notably, the building features a 24-hour doorman, concierge, underground parking, pool, sauna, whirlpool, fitness center, landscaped courtyard and rooftop terrace.
Interestingly, the rent of over $30,000 for a celebrity home in U.S. is quite normal, as we have earlier seen some of the other homes like the Kate Winslet's Chelsea apartment for rent at $30,000 a month, Frank Gehry’s New York penthouse at $60,000 per month, the Astor Suite at the Plaza in New York asking for $165,000 per month to become one of the most expensive rental home, and the apartment in the Waldrof Astoria tower on 50th East Street commanding $135,000 a month.
