For the fashion-forward house hunter with $29.995 million to spend, Mickey Drexler’s converted warehouse home just might be the winning ticket.

The J.Crew CEO’s 9,000-square-foot downtown Manhattan townhouse has hit the market for just shy of $30 million, the Wall Street Journal reported. He bought it in 2008 for $5.5 million.

A converted coffee warehouse from the 1890s, the eclectic Tribeca home is filled with colorful design details and custom amenities, including a rooftop terrace, sauna, and commercial-sized elevator.

This is Drexler’s second property currently on the market; the other is a $24.95 million townhouse, also in Tribeca. He sold a massive Hamptons estate last summer for a whopping $50 million. Drexler’s primary home is reportedly an Upper East Side apartment.

This listing is with CORE’s Shaun Osher and Jim St. Andre.


Built in 1892 for a wholesale coffee and tea merchant, the loft-style building still retains original details like the distinctive storefront signage.

It may be a historic building, but inside, it’s been completely renovated. Drexler commissioned French architect Thierry Despont to convert it into a residence.

Warm tones are a theme throughout, although materials like steel and wood hint to the warehouse’s past.

Textured walls and warm colors make this place different from most contemporary, minimalist designs.
