Ben Affleck scopes out Mark Wahlberg’s former 15 Central Park West rental, now asking $39K/month

September 14, 2017

It’s been over two years since newly single Ben Affleck started apartment hunting in NYC, and now that he has a new love interest, he’s back at it. The Post reports that the actor and girlfriend Lindsay Shookus, a “Saturday Night Live” producer, checked out unit 26C in the Robert A.M. Stern-designed, celeb-filled 15 Central Park West. The three-bedroom unit, asking $39,000 a month, was rented by Mark Wahlberg in 2009 for $32,000 a month; Alex Rodriguez also bid on the unit last year, despite being banned from the building for allegedly hosting too many prostitutes while renting another apartment. Not known for any partying antics, Affleck will likely have better luck should he want to move forward with living in the city’s most expensive condo.

A source close to the actor told the Post, “Ben has always loved New York. He’s been looking at property for awhile, and needs to find a place that is suitable for his kids. He plans to stay in LA full time to be close to them.” He’s reportedly looked at other high-end homes as well, but this particular residence spans 2,761 square feet and has heated floors, 11-foot ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows. It also has access to the building’s swanky amenities, including a 14,000-square-foot gym with a pool and spa, private restaurant, cinema room, wine cellar, valet, and roof deck.
