A penthouse that once belonged to Lady Gaga and a host of other major celebs was recently listed on the market for a mere $33,000 a month. The sprawling 2,000 square foot duplex offers residents the ultimate in both luxury and privacy. There are no neighbors on either side of the penthouse, and there are also four private terraces out of view of the public eye. This may explain why celebrities such as Liza Minnelli and Lance Armstrong have also called this 40 Central Park South apartment home.
Demi Moore has sold her expansive San Remo triplex at 145-146 Central Park West, four years after first attempting to unload the $75 million home. Moore originally purchased the triplex in 1990 with then-husband Bruce Willis. At the time, the $75 million price tag included a two-bedroom maisonette located on the ground floor of the building. Moore initially wanted the apartment to be a whisper listing, but ultimately it officially appeared on the market in April of 2015.
The Heritage at Trump Place, 240 Riverside Drive, already has three penthouses on the market that range from $17.5 million up to $35.495 million. Judging by the price they must be extravagant, but none of them comes even close to the newly listed penthouse.
The Durst Organization, the developer, apparently feels more than comfy on the block between 11th and 12th Avenues, bounded by 57th and 58th Streets. It all started with The Helena, the rental building that opened in 2005. Durst continued next to the Helena with New York City’s very first pyramid—or, as the designer likes to call it, a tetrahedron. It is nearing completion and should open its doors with 709 rental units sometime this year.
Avant-garde architect and designer Karim Rashid, who designed a “diamond” inspired building for Harlem last month is, well, at it again.
Rashid is well known for creating highly unusual buildings, which a lot of times involve whimsical themes and plenty of pastels. This time he will be adding yet another bold design to his portfolio with his new 100-unit project in the Washington Heights section of the city for HAP Investments.
Extell Development is at it yet again. The real estate development group behind such behemoths as One57 will indeed be adding to their brood of buildings, as the Landmarks Commission has just given them the go-ahead to erect yet another hulking luxury tower.
After enduring a long period of anticipated renovations and failed attempts on the market as a rental, the Central Park West castle has finally been sold for $17.5 million—a major price cut!—which actually makes more sense than its hoped-for sale at well over $25 million.
Renovations have been completed on the astonishing 5,200-square-foot penthouse at the historic Schwab House on the Upper West Side, and it is currently being listed for $14 million. To be honest, the new facelift is pretty marvelous, so perhaps the price for this particular penthouse isn’t so unreasonable.
Legendary former football coach and sports commentator John Madden has finally sold his Upper West Side apartment at the Dakota after having it on the market for two and a half years and dropping the price several times.
The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom co-op, which boasts original antique details, sold for $3.9 million after initially being listed for $4.9 million and then nudged down to $4.4 million.
