"The clock tower, because of its unique and bizarre features and its incredible view, is probably one of the most spectacular things in real estate one would ever see," says Asher Abehsera, vice president for
Two Trees Management
, which developed the property and is overseeing its sale. "We've been working on this space for a number of years now and every time I walk in, it is just, 'Wow.'"
The Clocktower building was previously the site of a cardboard factory. In 1998, it was divided into 124 condominium units. David Walentas, a developer and principal at Two Trees, later designed and renovated the triplex.
The 3,000-square-foor main floor features a living space capped by 16-foot-high ceilings. The second floor has three bedrooms and a pedestal bathtub in the master bathroom that overlooks the Manhattan skyline. A glass elevator travels among the unit's three floors, alongside a glass and wood staircase. The fourth floor includes a deck and a half-enclosed, temperature-controlled sky box.
