Jared Kushner has acquired a $53 million portfolio of seven walk-up buildings, and is up to increase it to $58 million by purchasing an eighth. The walk-ups are located in Manhattan’s eternally trendy East Village, SoHo and West Village. They were purchased from Benchmark. The NY Post reports that Mr. Kushner started with buying just one walk-up, but he and the representative of Benchmark, “hit it off and decided to give him some more”. Jared Kushner may only be 31 years old, but the handsome and ultra successful businessman obviously understands how to wheel and deal.
Courtney Love’s lease ended this year at her townhouse located at 250 West 10th Street. For a while she was renting it out, but it has since gone back on the market for sale. It is listed with Corcoran and bears the initial price tag of $11.4 million. The last transfer of the townhouse was in 2010 for $7.64 million. It has 7 rooms, 6 fireplaces, a garden, and had been renovated by a star designer & architect two years before she moved in in 2011.
