Cancel those tickets to Miami, because the South Beach club Setai has opened a new condominium Downtown.

This particular bachelor pad on the 24th floor comprises 1,066 square feet, with one bedroom and one and a half baths and never-ending Lower Manhattan views. Offered at $1.5 million.

Like Ian Schrager’s hotels, this loft in his 40 Bond is nothing short of sleek and sophisticated. Light seeps through seven windows along the bedroom and library walls, and thanks to the open layout, brightens up the kitchen and living room as well. Custom Corian kitchen counters, Miele appliances, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator round out the refinement. But the real testament to luxeness? The service-oriented amenities, including maid service and a private chef. Offered at $3.5 million.
Men in Blue

One of the advantages to living in a former police headquarters is the headroom—17 feet of it, to be exact. With soaring ceilings in the living room, this one-bedroom duplex at 240 Centre Street provides room for the loftiest ideals. Watch the sun set from oversize west-facing windows and dream of a time when this Baroque Revival building harbored both New York’s finest as well as its dirtiest criminals, all under one roof. Offered at $1.85 million.

At 2,400 square feet, this Greenwich Village loft is far roomier than most one-bedroom apartments. Filling that space are other larger-than-life features like wide-planked wooden floors, vaulted ceilings, and oversize windows. A library, home office, chef’s kitchen, and full laundry room serve as purposeful—not superfluous—amenities, ensuring any resident’s happiness. But there are some spaces a man will want to share—the master bath has a double shower. Offered at $3.3 million.
