In New York’s latest wave of construction and renovations, nothing helps a building stand out like a good back story. That is especially the case at 545 West 20th Street, which is better known as Lifesaver Lofts for its history as the former home to Mint Products Company, a maker of Life Savers. This history is a major draw, but the building’s exclusive location, sweeping views, and impressively proportioned apartments seal the deal. Back on the market is its Penthouse #6/7B, a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath duplex priced at $6.95 million. The unit sold for $6.619M in Aupril 2011 according to our sales records.

The doorman building has a discreet entry lobby and the private, key-locked elevator creates an extra sense of privacy. Once in the apartment, a gracious entry hallway leads to a living room with double-height ceilings and northern exposures. The sleek kitchen opens to the living room and dining area and is equipped with stone counters and Miele, Gaggenau, and SubZero appliances. This level is also home to a laundry room, powder room, and master bedroom with a walk-in closet and en-suite bath with Ann Sacks fixtures.

Doors from the living room and master bedroom lead to a majestic garden terrace over half the size of the apartment at approximately 1,900 square feet. It is landscaped with trellised seating areas. An observation deck overlooks the Hudson River.

A glamorous flight of stairs leads to the apartment’s well-appointed second level. The mezzanine lounge has a fireplace and can be used as a study, library, or media room. Both bedrooms share a bathroom, and the smaller of the two has a private balcony.

The upscale amenities of West Chelsea lie at your fingertips with the building's proximity to Del Posto, 1 OAK, and plans for Six Senses’ first urban hotel and spa. Hudson Yards, an emerging cultural and dining destination, is taking shape to the north. Additional area attractions include Chelsea Piers, the High Line, and many of the galleries and performance spaces that brought the neighborhood to prominence.
