A $3,740** one-bedroom is available on the 26th floor of the 76-story New York by Gehry tower at 8 Spruce St. And this apartment comes with bragging rights -- it’s in the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere, and bears the name of one of the world’s most famous living starchitects, Frank Gehry.
Pros: The apartment has a washer-dryer and central air, and amazing views thanks to the building’s signature bay windows.
The building’s amenities are ridiculous -- think 22,000 squre feet of indoor and outdoor amenities (including a fitness center, spa treatment suite, yoga and pilates rooms, a swimming pool with a retractable roof and a wraparound sundeck) and full concierge services.
The building is offering one month free on a 13 month lease.
Cons: The neighborhood, just south of City Hall, is a bit desolate (though there's a primar --P.S. 397--on the bottom floors). Also, despite the building’s cachet, that’s a lot of money for a one-bedroom.
**Note that the StreetEasy listing says the apartment is $3,720. It is, in fact, going for $3,740, according to leasing agent Citi Habitats.
