Supermodel turned entrepreneurial businesswoman Heidi Klum has set down roots in the heart of New York City’s Soho with a $5.1 million fixer-upper penthouse.

The fashion designer and reality television mogul scored her new loft atop a handsome, six-story Queen Anne style building that dates to the late 1800s. Used for decades as an artist’s studio, the listing from agent Edward Hickey at Compass describes the home as needed ‘total renovation’.

The 4,772-square-foot space has no rooms and stretches 125-feet from end to end, with ten exposed support columns lined up down the middle of the 40-foot wide space. There are high ceilings, hardwood floors laid at a 45-degree angle to the rectangular space and gigantic sash windows with southern, eastern and southwestern exposures that provide an over the rooftops view of the World Trade Center.

The judge on America’s Got is not the first famous person to shack up in the three-building complex. Photographer Cindy Sherman owned a 4,100-square-foot, fifth floor loft she used as a photo studio before she sold in July 2005 for $4.625 million to Hank Azaria who held on to it until 2013 when he passed it on for $8 million to Meg Ryan.
