The founder and CEO of The RealReal just paid nearly $7 million for a condo in one of New York City’s most iconic buildings — here’s a look inside

Julie Wainwright, the founder and CEO of luxury consignment shop TheRealReal, just picked up a $6.75 million condo in one of New York City’s most iconic and historic buildings, Business Insider learned from Sotheby’s International Realty.

After a five-year restoration, the 107-year-old Woolworth Building is now selling luxury residences ranging from $2.85 million to almost $30 million.

Originally developed by the F.W. Woolworth Company as an office building, the tower was nicknamed the “Cathedral of Commerce” and once housed tenants such as Nikola Tesla and the Manhattan Project.

Today, while the lower 28 floors remain offices, Alchemy Properties owns floors 29 and up and transformed them into 32 luxury residences over the course of a five-year, multimillion-dollar renovation. The restoration work on the exterior alone cost $22 million.

Wainwright’s new 34th-floor condo features 3,282 square feet of living space, and panoramic views of the city skyline.

Alchemy Properties and Sotheby’s International Realty’s Stan Ponte and Joshua Judge handled the sale.

Take a look inside the sprawling three-bedroom condo.
