Could the Triplex Be the New Townhouse?



Could the Triplex Be the New Townhouse?

When a townhouse seems like too much work and a duplex just won’t cut it, there’s always the triplex, which “offers flexible layouts and privacy for buyers who need more space,” says Corcoran’s Sharon Baum, “but don’t want the responsibility of maintaining a townhouse.” Stribling & Associates president Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan concurs, noting that “triplexes are the townhomes of the sky, with the luxury amenities of a full-service building.”

For buyers looking in SoHo, a 5,286-square-foot four-bedroom triplex penthouse at One Van Dam, designed by BKSK Architects, features a private elevator and nearly 2,000 square feet of outdoor space; Stribling’s Sean Murphy Turner holds the $21 million listing. In the Flatiron District, a 6,378-square-foot three-bedroom penthouse at 45 East 30th Street, which boasts a 1,000-square-foot terrace and a $10.9 million price tag, is being represented by Howard Margolis, Marie Espinal, and Jeff Adler of Douglas Elliman. And uptown, Corcoran’s Baum has the listing for a 4,932-square-foot four-bedroom triplex penthouse at 60 East 86th Street that is in contract for $22 million. Bonus: a rooftop terrace.
