Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney has just sold his Upper East Side co-op at 1045 Fifth Avenue for $8.5 million, The Real Deal reports. Sir Paul and his wife, Nancy Shevell, purchased the four-bedroom co-op in 2015 for $15.5 million. The duplex penthouse overlooking the Central Park reservoir was first listed in June for $12 million, then received another cut before going into contract in October.

The penthouse is situated on the building’s 15th and 16th floors and has a bonus room on the 17th floor. 40 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows grace each floor. Glass-wrapped terraces overlook the park on each floor as well.

The duplex was previously owned by developer Manny Duell, who bought the apartment as a gift for his wife, who lived in the unit until McCartney purchased it. The 1967 mid-century modern building, with its distinctive dark glass-fronted facade, is home to only 12 residents.

According to the recent listing, the apartment was in “white box” condition. The unit was listed at Douglas Elliman with Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty; CB Whyte of Douglas Elliman represented the buyer.
