Notable NYC Neighbors

JUNE 20, 2014

Helen Hunt sells her UWS home; Anne Hathaway’s DUMBO loft is back on the market; another $70m sale ties the record for priciest co-op; Walmart heiress picks a Park Avenue duplex.

Helen Hunt has finally parted ways with her homey-but-unspectacular Upper West Side pre-war co-op for $2.6 million after first listing it at a slightly higher price in 2011. The actress bought the three-bedroom apartment at 320 West 86th Street in 2006 for $2.425 million, netting her a less-than-spectacular profit of about $155k. The apartment is a sizeable 2,000 square feet and was recently recently renovated and upgraded (CurbedNY).

Chestnut-haired starlet Anne Hathaway made news in 2013 when she purchased a two-bedroom DUMBO loft condo in the Clocktower building at 1 Main Street; then, after having reportedly used the 2,592 square-foot aerie with jaw-dropping views in every direction as a glorified storage closet, the actress put the apartment up for sale. After six months without a buyer, the listing was pulled; now the corner apartment in the amenity-packed luxury building is back on the market at $4.25 million (6sqft).

Jordache was the jeans brand to beat–and be seen in–during a curtain 20th century style moment. That fleeting fashion coup was enough to propel founder Ralph Nakash into hotel and resort mogul status; in addition to his recent purchase–with his family–of the Versace mansion in Miami, the former denim don just bought a Central Park-facing three-bedroom pre-war co-op at  812 Fifth Avenue–once the residence of Nelson Rockefeller–for $6.9 million (NYPost).

 

Big Tickets

The record-setting sale of NYC’s most expensive co-op–the $70 million purchase of the late Edgar Bronfman’s penthouse at 960 Fifth Avenue–is now joined by the $70 million sale of the the French ambassador’s residence at 740 Park Avenue. The apartment in the venerable Upper East Side co-op was purchased by hedge fund billionaire Israel Englander, whose bid of $22 million above the $48 mil ask was certainly enough to get the deal done. The French government acquired the apartment for $600,000 in 1979 (NYPost)

Walmart heiress (and the planet’s 14th wealthiest human) Alice Walton–who was rumored to have had her eye on the above-mentioned Bronfman penthouse–was the buyer of a $25 million condo at 515 Park Avenue. The sprawling duplex on the building’s 30th and 31st floors covers 6,286 square feet, boasts 52 oversized windows with panoramic views of both the city and the park and comes with a one-bedroom guest apartment (via BusinessInsider).
