It’s pretty common that we report on celebrities upgrading their digs, but today we have the opposite story. ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Caplan sold his two-bedroom, floor-through penthouse apartment at 150 Chambers Street in Tribeca for $3 million, but picked up another similar two-bedroom unit in the same building for $2,375,000, according to city records released today.
Caplan’s original, 1,550-square-foot unit (PH5E) features 14-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a large wood-burning fireplace. The entire space is renovated with high-end finishes and technology. Perhaps the best part of the apartment, though, is the private, 400-square-foot roof deck with north and south exposures.
Surprisingly, his new 1,530-square-foot unit (5W) features almost identical details, including a newly renovated kitchen, exposed brick, a wood-burning fireplace, and a 400-square-foot roof deck. So, other than pocketing $600,000, we’re not quite sure why this ESPN personality went through this apartment swap…
