Amanda Seyfried says goodbye to Greenwich Village

Amanda Seyfried is listing her fourth-floor condo in Greenwich Village’s star-studded Devonshire House for $3.25 million. The Dropout star snatched up the apartment a dozen years ago for about $1.9 million. Seyfried and actor husband Thomas Sadoski outgrew the two-bedroom unit, decamping with their two children to a roomy farmhouse in the Catskills. However, they still have an Upper West Side penthouse in Manhattan.

Designed by architect Emery Roth in 1928, the unassuming but tasteful Devonshire House is located on 10th Street. Converted into luxury condos in 2009, the building has also been home to actors Josh Charles and Alec Baldwin. Seyfried’s unit offers 1,600 square feet of living space with custom cabinetry, a distinct dining area, and a fireplace in the living room, plus access to the building’s 24-hour doorman, English courtyard garden, and landscaped roof terrace.

Corcoran Group’s Scott B. Stewart and Alicia Cacchione have the listing.

Built in 1926 by Lloyd Wright, son of legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Derby House in Glendale, California, has come onto the market for a touch under $3.3 million.

Designed for businessman James Daniel Derby, the unique property was crafted in the American modernist style, with tiers of interlocking concrete blocks and a distinct Mayan influence. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 3,281-square-foot residence offers five bedrooms, a two-story living room, a hexagonal dining room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and remnants of the home’s history, including framed blueprints, period lamps, and original rose-and-lilac tiling in two of the three bathrooms.

The Derby House last sold for $2.3 million in 2016. Aaron Leider’s team at the Agency have the current listing.

Michael Somoroff art comes with the house

Conceptual artist and photographer Michael Somoroff, whose work is in the collections of MoMA and the Smithsonian, is selling one of his most treasured creations: The second-floor SoHo apartment he designed with architect Stephen Wanta.

Entered via a keyed elevator, the three-bedroom loft at 112 Prince Street retains its 1889 roots with 13.5-foot wood-beam ceilings and cast-iron columns. It’s also home to abstract floor-to-ceiling Italian marmoline sculptural volumes that were handcrafted on-site. The loft houses other showpieces too: A raised stage in the library, an in-ground jacuzzi just by the primary bedroom, and a giant whale sculpture that illuminates the dining room and eat-in kitchen.

On the market for the first time in a quarter century, the 2,500-square-foot loft is listed for $5.495 million with Katie Thurber of Serhant.

When architect Mickey Muennig died last year, he left behind a four-decade career that included pioneering California’s organic architecture movement. Now, the home of “the man who built Big Sur” is being listed with Jeannie Ford of Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty for $6.95 million. “This property is a legacy property. It’s an unusual place, and it’s like buying a piece of art,” Ford told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Actually a 30-acre and three-building compound, the eco-friendly Glass House on Big Sur’s Partington Ridge Road was built in stages. The 2,000-square-foot main house, completed in the late ’80s, was actually built into the mountainside. Visitors enter through a moon-shaped door into a skylit atrium filled with tropical plants and a massive waterfall.

The jewel of the property is a tiny 300-square-foot glass house with sublime views of the night sky (the bed is actually suspended from the ceiling). The transparent structure served as Muennig’s home during the main house’s construction and later became his studio. “It was definitely a small place to live,” he told Dwell in 2009. “But I felt happy in it.”

For something a bit more grounded, there’s also a two-story caretaker’s cottage inspired by the shape of a nautilus shell, with huge glass panes that afford breathtaking views of Big Sur.

Sales launch

A West End revival

In New York City, Rabina has launched sales for 393 West End Avenue, a prewar gem transformed into 75 luxury condos with all the conveniences of 21st-century living, just a block from Riverside Park and the Hudson River.

According to a release, the venue is one of the last condo conversions in the West End–Collegiate Historic District. “Due to the neighborhood’s landmark status, newly constructed luxury residential developments are exceedingly rare,” said Stephen Kliegerman, president of development marketing at Brown Harris Stevens, in the release.

CetraRuddy was tapped to keep the spirit of the Collegiate Gothic building, designed by Goldner & Goldner in 1927, while modernizing it with Miele appliances, handpicked marble and soft-wood French chevron flooring. “It’s an attitude of refined constraint,” CetraRuddy principal Nancy J. Ruddy said in a statement, “and a revival of romantic styles that brings a bit of magic back to this special part of the Upper West Side.”

Residents have access to 4,000 square feet of amenity space, including a club room, fitness area, and the Cottage, an enchanted forest–inspired children’s playroom that opens onto its own secret garden.

The Louise Phillips Forbes team at Brown Harris Stevens is handling sales, with a three-bedroom unit going for about $3.7 million.

The key to Gramercy Park

Urban Development Partners has launched sales for the Edison Gramercy, a 54-unit boutique condominium designed by Issac & Stern to invoke neoclassical Parisian architecture. With interiors by Paris Forino Designs, the residences range from studios to four-bedroom apartments, and are appointed with white-oak herringbone flooring, deep crown moldings, and Juliette balconies.

When the building is completed later this year, residents will have access to social and wellness amenities, as well as an array of secret gardens that “blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living,” according to the release.

Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes at Douglas Elliman are the property’s exclusive sales agents.


Frank Gehry returns to Toronto

Legendary architect Frank Gehry was born in Canada, but he has never designed a project in the country—until now. Forma—a mixed-use development in Gehry’s hometown of Toronto—includes two residential towers that, standing at 73 and 84 stories respectively, will house a total of 2,034 units. Gehry explains the towers’ twisting structures and iridescent façades will reflect the sunlight and surrounding buildings. “I wanted to create an ensemble of buildings that were respectful to the city and referential to the Toronto that I once knew,” he said in a statement.

Under the aegis of Great Gulf Group, Dream, and Westdale Properties, Forma will also be home to commercial and retail spaces and a new space for the Ontario College of Art & Design.

In Miami, NFT art comes with ownership

Lofty, the new 44-story tower coming to Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, has launched what Newgard Development Group is calling the first NFT art collective for condo owners. Original digital artworks will be on display in the building, with ownership of a custom NFT artwork transferred to each unit owner upon purchase of their residence.

Four local artists are designing NFTs for the project, starting with Carlos Betancourt. He will activate his hypnotic Re-Collections VIII series, which the artist says connects his experiences in Miami and his roots in the Caribbean. “At its core, it is an animated kaleidoscopic composition, bursting with collaged imagery that moves as in an eternal dance, constantly blending and mixing to the cultural mutations and syncretism of our times,” Betancourt said in a statement.

Furnished studios as well as one- and two-bedroom residences at the Arquitectonica-designed building are available from $490,000 to $1.3 million.

Bentley pulls up to Miami

Dezer Development has unveiled the first renderings of Bentley Residences, the metallic cylindrical tower on Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach that will be the tallest on any U.S. beachfront when it’s completed in 2026.

The carmaker’s first residential property is a 60-story building designed by Sieger Suarez in collaboration with Bentley designers Brett Boydell and Chris Cooke. Each of the 216 residences will include private pools on the balcony and a glass-enclosed car elevator (or “Dezervator”) that lets residents park on their floor.

Building amenities include a restaurant, whiskey bar, screening room, and a game room with V.R. headsets. Construction is set to start next year, with pricing between $4,200,000 and $7,500,000.
