The once record-breaking penthouse residence at Sky Lofts in Tribeca is now back on the market with a price tag of $45 million. Curbed reports that the apartment sold for $30.5 million in 2009, which at the time, was the most expensive condo sale in Manhattan below Columbus Circle. Despite this recognition, the current owner, William Duker, has listed the apartment several times over the past years with no luck. This time around, Duker has enlisted celebrity broker Raphael De Niro of Douglas Elliman. While his father gave him a famous last name, De Niro has found his own success by becoming the "it" broker for hard-to-sell listings. However, one would think this glassy 7,493-square-foot penthouse packed with amenities practically sells itself.

The 4-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom residence was created by NY architect James Carpenter, the same designer of 7 World Trade Center. It has a 4,500-square-foot wraparound terrace, a ton of natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, and features unique details like UV-coated high-performance, museum-quality insulated glass. In true penthouse luxury, future buyers will get to enter the residence through a private key-locked elevator and park their car in one of three private dedicated parking spots.

The home's great room has double-height south-facing windows which provide direct views of the Freedom Tower, and a two-story cherry wood hearth with a wood-burning fireplace. A state-of-the-art stainless steel kitchen, hot tub, outdoor shower, and dining area can be found on the home's massive terrace, complete with panoramic views of downtown New York.

Premium finishes like custom white lacquer cabinets and bluestone counters outfit the eat-in chef's kitchen. The same level also features a den with a second wood-burning fireplace, spacious dining room, double-height library, and the home's fourth bedroom. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, large closets and stunning views. The master bedroom has corner exposures directly facing the Hudson River, another wood-burning fireplace, and a spa-like bathroom with terrazzo floors, a steam shower, Jacuzzi and sauna, and two walk-in closets. All bathrooms in the residence also have heated floors.
