Though it’s been a while, 807 Park Avenue served as Sean P. Diddy Combs' “little” Manhattan mansion before he sold it to Aion Partners for $14 million in 2004. Diddy's initial purchase in 1999 for $12M never really suited him as he tossed it back on the market just a year later. Aion has since renovated the building in 2006, but the Landmarks Preservation Commission threw cold water on the more extensive hoped-for changes planned for the building.
