In 2008, filmmaker and director of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Peter Jackson, purchased two penthouse condominiums at 155 Franklin Street in Tribeca for $17.35 million.
The property owners invested in new roof and HVAC systems as well as parapet repair.
Now the two condos are listed for $21.5 million with Lara Nangle of the Corcoran Group. Ms. Nangle is encouraging any prospective buyer to combine the “two towers”. The resulting kingdom would be a 6100-square foot duplex with a private multi-level wraparound roof deck and 4000 square feet of private outdoor space. Boasting five bedrooms and five baths, this unit would be in fellowship with a 1900-square-foot guest apartment having a separate entrance, with two bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Now that beats living in the Shire anyday!
