Maroon 5’s lead vocalist and guitarist is tapping on windows and knocking on doors to find a more family-friendly home.
Along with his wife, Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo — have just listed their downtown Manhattan loft apartment for $5.5 million.
The loft, which is in a prime SoHo spot just across the street from the Apple Store and above the upscale Stella McCartney boutique, is a whopping 2,800 square feet of light-filled, raw space, with 13-foot ceilings, original columns, and perfect-condition exposed brick.
The famous couple bought the property in 2014 for $4.55 million.
The six-story co-op is a historic building: in the 1970s, it was a haven for artists and makers, an artist-run gallery where the scene “bordered on lunacy, a place that defiantly refused to let itself be defined,” according to the New York Times.
The historic loft still holds six of the original columns, but renewed exposed brick walls and 13-foot ceilings now modernize the stylish space. Oversized windows pan out to sweeping urban views.’
The history is documented in a book compiled by big-time gallerist David Zwirner.
Music is also part of its past: it was later the home of Greene Street Recording, where musicians like the Black Eyed Peas and Mos Def recorded albums.
It’s listed with Adam Mahfouda and Jules Borbely of the Oxford Property Group.
