Travis Kalanick, the billionaire co-founder and ex-CEO of rideshare app Uber, has recently purchased a new duplex penthouse in the Soho neighborhood of Manhattan, according to a recent report in The New York Times. And the digs have cost him some $36.4 million.
The "one of a kind" duplex is known as "Penthouse North," located at the top of the recently constructed tower at 565 Broome Street. It has four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms sprawled across 6,734 square feet. And that figure doesn't include the expansive outdoor space, measured at approximately 3,437 square feet, including a 2,500-square-foot private outdoor terrace located on the penthouse's third and final floor. The terrace is also home to a 20-foot heated outdoor pool.
The penthouse offers expansive views of New York City from all four directions, and is served by a private elevator that can take you to various living and dining rooms inside. Also inside you'll find a state-of-the-art kitchen, 260-square-foot master bedroom, and a "breathtaking great room" with library and wet bar. That's per the property's official real estate listing, which also goes on to describe the tower itself as more than worthy of the luxurious penthouse on top:
"565 Broome Soho is Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano's first New York City residential project. Rising 30 stories, 565 Broome Soho offers cinematic views of the Manhattan skyline, historic Soho, Hudson River, and beyond through a curved façade clad in low-iron glass, resulting in incredible light throughout all residences. 565 Broome SoHo provides the intimacy of a boutique SoHo building with the exceptional views and amenities of a full-service modern condominium. As the tallest residential property in SoHo, the building's design has been thoughtfully conceived to reflect the neighborhood's rich history while taking full advantage of its stunning views and light."
