...Perfectly positioned in the heart of Tribeca, this mixed-use townhouse is an unprecedented opportunity in a historic building that's housed everyone from Civil War soap makers to 70s punk rockers and modern-day Hollywood A-listers. Featuring two floors of commercial/retail/office space on the ground and cellar levels, plus four floors of residential space topped by a magnificent rooftop terrace, the possibilities are endless at 155 Duane Street.

A separate entrance opens to the commercial space, featuring a light and bright 662-square-foot main level filled with painted brick, a wall-of south-facing windows, 10.5-foot-tall ceilings and a handsome kitchenette/coffee bar complete with a sink, two mini fridges and a dishwasher. An open stair leads to the 1,013-square-foot cellar with storage rooms, a half-bath and additional workspace. The two-level commercial unit is ideal for a boutique, gallery, office, café or any other Group 6 establishments.

Above, discover four floors of updated townhouse living combining beautiful contemporary style with coveted industrial chic details. The first floor of the 2,604-square-foot residential space is currently configured as a flexible bedroom with a built-in Murphy bed and a gorgeous full bathroom featuring designer tile, a marble vanity and walk-in shower. The 24.5-foot-wide building's signature blackened steel staircase invites you upstairs to a level currently used as a formal dining/meeting room with retractable glass walls, a built-in mini bar, closet and powder room. The third floor is the heart of the home — a stunning full-floor eat-in kitchen with painted black-and-white checkerboard floors. Crisp new cabinetry trimmed with marble counters and herringbone tile surround upscale appliances, while a long row of banquette seating invites you to enjoy casual meals alongside southern exposures. The top floor acts as a dramatic living room lounge complete with a powder room, a glamorous bar and the home's historic hoist. A classic spiral staircase leads to the crowning glory — a 650-square-foot roof deck wrapped in iconic views that stretch from historic mid-rises and City Center spires to the Woolworth Building and One World Trade.

Dating back to the early 1800s, this beautiful building boasts swaths of exposed brick, oak floors, notched pine beams and a mechanical hoist used to carry materials between floors well before electricity was commonplace in the city. Once a home to soapmaking and dry goods companies in the 19th century, the building also housed a restaurant in the 1940s. In the 1970s, the notorious dive bar Barnabas Rex occupied the lower floors. Well known for its pool table, jukebox and volleyball net strung across Duane Street on warm summer days, Barnabas Rex attracted an eclectic crowd, including local construction workers and bikers to artists and punks. The building was later used as an attorney's live/work residence, and it once welcomed renter Channing Tatum for a summer.

This unbeatable Tribeca location is surrounded by the best of downtown living. Phenomenal shopping, dining and nightlife venues line the nearby blocks, including The Odeon, Sushi of Gari, Frenchette and Locanda Verde. The Tribeca Whole Foods, Target, Brookfield Place and Westfield World Trade are all close by, and you'll never lack outdoor space or recreation with Duane Park, Washington Market Park and massive Hudson River Park blocks away. Access to transportation is effortless with A/C/E, 1/2/3, R/W and PATH trains, excellent bus service and CitiBikes all nearby.
