J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler just bought a crazy co-op in TriBeCa for more than its $13.5 million asking price, The New York Post is reporting.The property was on the market for only a week, and after a bidding war broke out, Drexler emerged victorious according to the Post.

The co-op, inside a landmarked building from 1887, spans 6,226-square-feet and features five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Plus a bonus for Drexler, it’s right around the corner from J. Crew’s Hudson Street outpost.

The loft has a chef’s kitchen, a 150-bottle wine cave, a media room with fireplace, and a library.

The loft features wide-plank Brazilian wood floors and the building's original columns.

The house has dimmers on the lights and a keypad to control the audio system in every room.

The kitchen has a six-burner Wolf stove vented to the outside, Miele and Gaggenau ovens, and double sinks.

The house has one wood burning fireplace.

The building is considered one of the best properties downtown.

The family room is 100-feet wide, a great spot to entertain.

Here is the exterior of the Romanesque revival building at 140 Franklin Street, which was converted to luxury units in 200.
