The four-bedroom, five-bathroom apartment sits atop 250 West St., a 12-story condominium development by El Ad Group where sales launched in 2011. The penthouse, one of three condos left for sale in the 106-unit building, was held off the market until this month.

On three of its sides, the 12th-floor penthouse has floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels that open onto a 4,350-square-foot wraparound terrace. The unit has protected views of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.

The private terrace has a Jacuzzi, an outdoor kitchen and barbecue, as well a children’s play area. The penthouse has a private entry through wrought-iron gates and a private lobby, which has room for a car as well as staff and personal security. From there, a private elevator rises into the penthouse.

The penthouse also comes with all the amenities available to residents at 250 West St., including a doorman, a library, a 61-foot-long indoor pool, a sauna, a fitness center and a children’s playroom. There’s also an interior courtyard and a 5,000-square-foot landscaped rooftop with a separate sun deck lounge. “It’s like having a private mansion in Manhattan, with all the advantages and amenities of an apartment building,” says Richard Cantor, principal of Cantor & Pecorella, the sales and marketing firm for 250 West St.

Condo sales in TriBeCa and adjacent SoHo have gone up, with the average sales price rising by 17.5% in the past year to $3.08 million in 2012 from $2.62 million in 2011, according to real-estate appraiser Jonathan Miller.

Ariana Meyerson, managing director at Cantor & Pecorella, has the penthouse listing.
