A penthouse duplex at 215 Chrystie St. in the Lower East Side has sold for $18 million, according to property records.

It is the first resale in the Ian Schrager building, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, and it represents a $1 million loss for the seller.

That seller is Edwin Sheridan IV,  co-founder of Apex Systems, a technology services business, who paid $19 million for the duplex in 2018.

The buyer, via a trust, is Laura Speyer, daughter of billionaire developer Jerry Speyer, and her husband, Josef Goodman.

Laura declined to comment, but had been spotted in the building, several sources tell Gimme. The 4,250-square-foot unit comes with four bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms — and a 2,000-square-foot terrace with city and river views.

It was most recently on the market as a $50,000 a month rental. While this price might seem high for the Lower East Side, one broker familiar with the building said it is quite popular with a certain type of buyer.

“People love the Lower East Side and the East Village,” the source said. “The grungier the better. It makes them feel alive.”

The unit’s interior, designed by John Pawson, has separate private and public wings.

The 32nd- and 33rd-floor pad boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, wide plank oak floors, an open chef’s kitchen and a 1,000-square-foot main bedroom suite with a spa-like bathroom and a wet bar.

It’s one of eleven residences on top of the Public Hotel. Building amenities include access to the hotel’s offerings, from its gym to roof terraces, bars, clubs and room services from the in-house Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant. 

The listing brokers are Juliette Janssens and Allison Koffman of Sothebys International Realty, who declined to comment.
