Janet Jackson sold her Upper West Side apartment for $8,800,000 last month, slightly below the initial asking price. As the Wall Street Journal first reported, the pop star’s three-bedroom condo in the Trump International Hotel and Tower at 1 Central Park West hit the market in April for $8,995,000. Jackson has owned the home since 1998 but has not lived there since the pandemic.
“Whenever entering my apartment of 25 years, I always treasured my home’s wonderful location and the breathtaking views that capture the magic and excitement of New York,” Jackson said in a statement to the Wall Street Journal when her apartment first hit the market in April. “Stepping through its threshold instantly made me feel so tranquil and at peace—so many memories.”
Floor-to-ceiling windows provide stunning Central Park and skyline views from most rooms. The corner unit has three bedrooms and three and a half baths.
A proper gallery leads to the home’s open and spacious living and dining space. The windowed kitchen features two entrances and a park-facing breakfast bar.
Taking up one side of the apartment, the private primary suite boasts a walk-in closet and a marble-clad bathroom. The two additional bathrooms both have en-suite baths, with one currently set up as a library.
One Central Park West offers residents a state-of-the-art gym, a pool and spa, housekeeping, valet, parking, and a business center. Plus, the hotel’s Jean-Georges restaurant in the lobby provides 24-hour room service.
