As President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, faces mounting legal fees, his family is looking to sell three condominium units at a 72-story Trump building in Manhattan. Bloomberg reported Friday that Cohen’s father-in-law Fima Shusterman wants to sell three apartments he owns in Trump World Tower at 845 United Nations Plaza. Just two of the units are listed on the Trump International Realty website: a three-bedroom unit, 57B, for $6.7 million and a two-bedroom unit, 42A, for $4.5 million. Not listed but still for sale, the family’s 43rd-floor apartment was purchased in 2003 for $1.85 million, but the current price is not yet known.
Unit 57B is a corner-apartment with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. According to the listing, the layout is “ideal for entertaining” with a spacious foyer and windowed eat-in-kitchen. The Shustermans paid $3.6 million for the unit in 2005.
Unit B on Trump World Tower’s 42nd floor has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. The listing describes the apartment as offering “extraordinary views of the city and river.” In 2004, the Shustermans paid $2.2 million for the apartment.
Cohen is currently under investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan for his financial activities, including the payment he made to adult-film star Stormy Daniels on the president’s behalf. In April, the FBI raided Cohen’s home, office and hotel rooms, seizing documents and electronic devices.
In May, Cohen put up his family’s Lenox Hill apartment at Trump Park Avenue as collateral against a $12.8 million bank loan he took out for his taxi business in 2014. Cohen had secured these loans with NYC taxi medallions, which have since dropped in value by 80 percent.
