Jennifer Lopez’s hunt for a downtown pad continues. After spending time with celebrity broker Fredrik Eklund checking out a unit at the Walker Tower a few weeks ago, it looks like Jenny is moving her eyes from Chelsea to a new block: Tribeca. The superstar celeb was just spotted by the Post scoping out a 5,924-square-foot sprawling stunner at 55 Warren Street.

It looks like Ryan Serhant of Million Dollar Listing fame is preparing for his upcoming nuptials by buying a lofty love nest atop the Renwick Modern. According to The Real Deal, the reality TV star just closed on the full 9th floor penthouse at the 22 Renwick Street building for $3.7 million. The 1,895-square-foot apartment hosts three bedrooms, a home office, a top of the line kitchen, and keyed elevator access. And for that little bit of extra oomph, the kitchen cabinets are clad in leather.

15 Central Park West

Israeli-American fashion designer Elie Tahari has snatched up two units at famed, Robert A.M. Stern– designed 15 Central Park West for a combined $25.25 million, according to city records released today. The pair of adjacent apartments was originally marketed for a total of $29 million.

Tahari had previously been renting a three-bedroom unit in the star-studded building for $30,000 a month, but it looks like he’s decided to make his stay more permanent, now occupying an entire private floor. Unit 9m has two bedrooms, 1,862 square feet of interior space, and 1,619 square feet of outdoor space. Unit 9G is a three-bedroom unit with 2,237 square feet inside and a spectacular 1,700-square-foot terrace. Both spaces appear to offer a pretty clean slate, perfect for the creative new owner to imbue his signature tailored, modern vibe.

442 11th Street, Park Slope, Bill de Blasio

Mayor de Blasio’s Park Slope clapboard house, located at 442 11th Street, has hit the rental market today, asking $4,975 a month. The 100-year-old, three-story home has a private backyard (complete with herb garden and crab apple tree) and three bedrooms…but only one bathroom, which is up on the third floor. Chiara and Dante definitely had a hand in painting their bedrooms (photos and video after the break), and the dwelling retains some of its original, historic details.

It may not be Gracie Mansion, but according to its broker, this mayoral abode offers a lot for it’s price.

23 South Elliott Place, Fort Greene

Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann, daughter of famed Italian actress and model Isabella Rossellini, has just picked up a $2.2 million Fort Greene townhouse, according to city records. And the beautifully historic, yet slightly disheveled home at 23 South Elliott Place would make the perfect backdrop for a fashionably eerie photo shoot (or some really good Instagrams).

Built in 1870, and part of the Fort Greene Historic District, the five-bedroom home is currently configured as a two-family residence, but we’re guessing Ms. Rossellini isn’t going to be looking for roommates and will likely convert it back to a single-family dwelling.

Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, Celebrities, Cool Listings

Boerum Hill Townhouse, 126 Hoyt Street, Michelle Williams, For Sale

Michelle Williams’s gorgeous ivy-covered Boerum Hill townhouse just hit the market. And it comes with a three-car garage.

The listing calls it “the one and only,” and for someone looking for a huge single-family home in this coveted South Brooklyn neighborhood, it just might be–assuming they can cover the steep asking price. First, the size factor: The corner townhouse is 22 feet wide, offering four stories, four and a half baths, at least six bedrooms, 12-foot-ceilings and a three-car garage that currently includes a rec room.

Timeless Trophy: 740 Park Avenue

By Dana Schulz, Thu, September 25, 2014

740 park avenue

New York City may have an ever-revolving cast of hottest restaurants, hippest clubs, and even most desirable neighborhoods, but some real estate titans never go out of style in this metropolis. Known as the “Tower of Power,” 740 Park Avenue is one such mainstay.

The Upper East Side 19-story, Art Deco building was completed in 1930 to the designs of Rosario Candela, often considered the finest architect of luxury apartment interiors, as the last of the grand dames erected along Manhattan’s Gold Coast. It didn’t reach its peak until the real estate boom of the 1980s, but is today one of the most sought-after addresses with 31 apartments, mostly all duplexes, triplexes, and penthouses. The massively scaled residences feature grand living rooms, formal dining rooms, spiral staircases, high ceilings, expansive foyers, and an abundance of windows.

Plenty more on this timeless trophy residence and its long list of well known inhabitants

158 Mercer Street, Hedi Klum, Jon Bon Jovi

Looks like rocker Jon Bon Jovi may be saying “Auf Wiedersehen” to his Soho penthouse at 158 Mercer Street’s New Museum Building, as supermodel Heidi Klum was seen checking out the $37.5 million digs. The six-bedroom, 7,452-square-foot duplex is chock full of luxurious amenities such as wood-burning fireplaces, landscaped terraces, screening and projection rooms, and living and kitchen areas on both floors. Klum was scoping out several downtown homes, but it’s not going to be easy to pass up this superb penthouse.

Kelly Ripa Soho Penthouse living room

Kelly Ripa has officially unloaded her Soho penthouse, according to city records filed today. The five-bedroom beauty at 76 Crosby Street sold for $20 million, $4.5 million less than what she was asking when she first listed it in January last year. Though Ripa came up a little short, it’s worth noting that her and hubby Mark Consuelos paid just $9.5 million for it in 2005. Today’s sale is also the 6th highest ever recorded in Soho, according to CityRealty.
