Edward Albee’s Historic Tribeca Loft Hits the Market

Best known for works like “The Sandbox,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woof?,” and “A Delicate Balance,” Pulitizer and Tony award-winning playwright Edward Albee’s Tribeca loft is on the market for the first time since he purchased the two-story home in 1977.

Mansion Global reports that the 4,500-square-foot duplex loft takes up the top two floors of the six-story building. Albee died in 2016. Right after he purchased the home, he renovated the loft, and continued to update and renovate over time. 

The historic building has been a candy factory, a house for butter storage, and a cheese warehouse before eventually becoming housing.

Proceeds from the sale of the three-bedroom, two-full and one-half bath home will benefit the Edward Albee Foundation. It’s listed for $7.5 million.

Come to Norway for a Terrifying Dangle Off a Cliff

Instanbul-based Architectural Design Studio has come up with a concept for a boutique hotel in Norway that is both gorgeous and completely terrifying, the Robb Report says.

The design, which would consist of five levels, would look like part of the popular tourist attraction Preikestolen, also known as the Pulpit Rock, a steep 1,982-foot cliff that rises high above the Lysefjord in the south of Norway.

Each floor would have its own curved balcony that would provide panoramic views, but the bottom floor would extend out the furthest, and would boast a large observation deck and a swimming pool with translucent sides and floor.

At this point, it is still just a concept, but you can see more in the Robb Report.

Luxury Homes Planned for Seal Beach

Once the site of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s power plant, an 11-acre waterfront parcel in Seal Beach is now being sold as 30 new luxury single-family homes, the Orange County Register reports.

Billed Ocean Place, it’s being developed by Shea Homes, and will include floor plans ranging in size from 3,140 to 4,640 square feet, with up to five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Six acres of the site has been set aside to become a park.

The homes are priced starting at $2 million.
