A live/work space Hudson Square townhouse at 484 Greenwich Street is finally becoming the single-family home it always wanted to be.

The 30-foot-wide industrial/modern/prewar townhouse went on the market in 2010 with an asking price of $11.2 million, Curbed reported. The owner didn’t find a buyer, and listed the property again last year for $12.5 million, attracting the attention of Real Housewife Kelly Bensimon, according to the New York Post.

Second time was the charm, and the digs traded in November 2013 for $10.5 million, public records say.

The existing structure is a two-unit, six-story elevator building with gallery space on the lower levels, a duplex on the second to third floors and a triplex on top. Several years ago, architect Peter Himmelstein restored the original brick facade and added a two-story metal and glass extension with casement windows. The roof deck has a steel pergola and outdoor shower.

From the looks of this here permit filed on February 10th, the new owner plans to add a seventh story to the building and enlarge the structure horizontally, keeping the first-floor car port. The townhouse will go from 5,840 square feet to 7,014 square feet, and Himmelstein will be designing the renovation (again).
