$50M spread sells in NYC’s biggest downtown deal of the year

When you’re alone and life is making you lonely, you can always go — downtown.

A $50 million penthouse is in contract at 56 Leonard St., a 60-story glass skyscraper, known as the “Jenga Building.”

The deal for the Herzog & de Meuron-designed Tribeca trophy is the most expensive downtown penthouse sale of the year, said listing broker Clayton Orrigo of Compass, who declined to ID the buyer. 

At 7,779 square feet, the sprawling skypad features 19-foot ceilings, double height windows, white oak and stone floors, a gas fireplace, a chef’s kitchen and three terraces totaling 1,252 square feet with panoramic water and city skyline views.

Residents of the building include the singer Frank Ocean.  

If you’re looking for something a little less pricey in the building, actor/comedian Keegan-Michael Key, who co-created and co-starred in Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele” series with Jordan Peele, has also listed his 35th-floor apartment in the building for $5.49 million.

Key’s 1,624-square-foot pad comes with two bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms. The chic digs also boast 11-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, an entrance gallery that leads to a living room, along with an open chef’s kitchen — and two terraces.

Building amenities include a 75-foot infinity pool with a sun deck, a gym, steam room and sauna, indoor/outdoor theater, private dining room with a catering kitchen, a library lounge, children’s playroom, personal and bike storage and on-site valet parking.

The listing brokers for Key’s apartment are Douglas Elliman’s Tim Malone and Steven Cohen.
