Imagining yourself—and your belongings—in new digs is exciting. Whether you’re actually making a move or just dreaming, nothing beats the thrill of getting an inside look at a new home—especially in New York City—no matter who you are.
Just take Gigi Hadid. The 24-year-old supermodel hinted that she might be moving out soon with a sweet snap on Instagram of her mom helping her pack (according to Page Six). She had bought her 2-bedroom Noho apartment—located on chic Bond Street—in 2016 to the tune of $4 million.
Even if you’re not spending $4 million, there are plenty of options out there on StreetEasy, which has the most comprehensive, vetted, and verified apartment listings in New York. With Gigi in mind, we couldn’t wait to see what gems are hiding in plain sight. We think that these five luxury apartments would be a perfect fit for the internationally famous supermodel.
If she wants to go for a sprawling upgrade, she should consider this West Village stunner. The townhouse (yes, townhouse) features a spacious 4-story interior, full basement, private terrace, and lush backyard garden. It also features 2.5 baths and 4 bedrooms, including a master suite with southern windows, window seats and storage, and a new gas fireplace. The 5-fixture windowed spa bath also has a gas fireplace, double sinks, a soaking tub, a separate shower, and water closet. Living on tree-lined Charles street in an entirely private townhouse, she wouldn’t need to worry about the prying eyes of paparazzi.

Tribeca is known to be an enclave for young stars (hello Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift), so another celebrity would fit right in. This large loft features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, and a grand total of 3,341 square feet. With marble and shiplap finishes, this loft is a great mix of luxury and warmth, and would be a perfect starting point for any NYC adventure. Plus, having amazingly cool neighbors to brag about? Well, that’s just priceless.

Talk about living the life. If someone in the spotlight is looking for an upgrade, this would be one spectacular way to do it. The 4 bed, 7 bath (yes, 7!) penthouse is a true dream in downtown Soho, with 8,000 square feet just waiting to be lived in. With luxe touches like fabricated steel doors, direct elevator access to each of the living areas appointed with profiled custom steel gates, and a living space that features six oversized arched windows, 15 foot ceilings and two skylights, and not one, but two massive wood-burning fireplaces, you could call this apartment fit for a true king, queen or supermodel.
Terraces to entertain, a kitchen that would make a chef weep for joy (including an 86-inch range and two butler’s pantries and wine rooms), and a master suite featuring his and hers bathrooms along with private terraces—she truly couldn’t do better in one of the most iconic and chic neighborhoods in the city.

It’s easy to forget you’re only steps away from one of the best (and busiest) shopping areas in the city, since this bright and spacious loft is tucked away on a quiet cobblestone street in the heart of Soho. It would be an ideal place for her to unwind following a hectic photoshoot—although, considering the amazing natural light, it would also be a perfect setting for a photoshoot.
This authentic Soho loft is more than just a place to escape from the city. The open dining and living area, with its double-paned windows, Corinthian cast iron columns and 12-foot-ceiling, is practically made for entertaining. In case the exposed brick and central air conditioning weren’t inviting enough, its central location—Little Italy, NoHo, Nolita, the Lower East Side and Chinatown are all a short walk away—makes it the perfect spot to host an elegant dinner or unforgettable party.
Few professions are quite as glamorous as ‘world-famous supermodel.’ Shouldn’t she have a home as grand and extravagant as that job description? This luxurious full-floor condo more than meets that criteria. It can only be accessed via private elevator and includes floor-to-ceiling windows, a stunning fireplace and multiple terraces with dazzling views of the city.
Of course, listing these lavish features hardly does them justice. You need to see the custom-designed chef’s kitchen, double walk-in closets and high-efficiency LED recessed lighting to appreciate how the contemporary aesthetic has been executed to perfection. It’s an elegant style that a supermodel would surely appreciate.
