MoCo Loco: MetroShed & The Garden Escape – I need one of these… oh, and a house with enough land to install it.
Architecture & Furniture
Were I ever to move to New York, I know one of the key places that I would want to live. Downtown, designed by Philippe Starck, sits directly across from the New York Stock Exchange (as you can observe from the rooftop park) in the old JP Morgan building. While I could wax rhapsodic for days on this amazing location, the price tag is still a bit out of my range – the smallest available unit is offered at $1,160,000 plus $606.60 in monthly charges for the common areas and over $1250 in taxes. And let’s be honest, we would need a bit more room… So, let’s up the price to at least $1,695,000 for a unit that has a couple of home offices in addition to the master bedroom, and a terrace.
