Well, it only makes sense for the creator of Baby Phat to live in a phat crib. Investment banker Tim Leissner, otherwise known as Mr. Kimora Lee Simmons, just dropped $19 million on an 8th floor apartment at The Marquand, according to the NY Post. The 5BR/5.5BA unit has its own private elevator landing and wood burning fireplaces, and while we’re not sure what other features the actual apartment boasts, other apartments in the building have bay windows, a chef’s kitchen, and a media niche with a concealed A/V closet.
Master suites of the 1913 Beaux Arts building have a sitting room, a private dressing room which should get a lot of use from the former model and clothing designer, and windowed en suite baths.
Additional building amenities include a children’s playroom and a gym with a personal trainer. After all, just because you have a clothing line called Baby Phat, doesn’t mean you have to have baby fat of your own.
The deal was brokered by all Douglas Elliman agents, with Eleonora Strugo of Elliman’s Sroka Worldwide Team representing Simmons and Leissner and Madeline Hult Elghanayan and Sabrina Saltiel holding the listing.
