Taxi King Simon Garber is giving another stab at selling his palatial Tribeca penthouse in the wake of staking it as a $100,000/month rental.

On the bare walls of the main communal space are two large grey wall panels arranged like abstract modern art. These panels can be slid open to reveal an entertainment center and a portal to the bedroom of the resident fashion designer. These whimsical features add sense of surprise, dynamism, flexibility and interaction that defies the conventional boundaries of a traditional room. Coupled with the dining table, the designer can extend their work surface between the two rooms. This tone of playful concealment can be found behind the grey wall which houses storage closets, pantry, and the powder room. The objects of daily life are treated with care, each has their specific place in the residence. This sensitive gesture allows the main communal areas to be uncluttered and free as a meditative haven

The house feels really clean and minimal, but still warm even during Chicago winters.My favorite part of our home is definitely the wood burning fireplace.When it’s cold out, we love to light a fire and sit in the living room reading, or drinking wine and playing Cards Against Humanity with our friends
