Ricky Martin moved into 40 Bond–the Herzog & de Meuron-designed Noho condo famous for its graffiti gate and green glass/green cast iron facade–back in 2007, shortly after the building was completed. He paid $5.7 million for unit 6C, which is perfectly spacious and lovely, but has had a bit of trouble getting it off his hands, first trying to rent it and then listing it for $8.3 million back in 2013. But the Post reports that the Latin pop star has finally found a buyer, who paid $7.55 million for the three-bedroom pad.
The 2,637-square-foot apartment has a floor-through plan that is extremely open and bright thanks to 11-foot operable floor-to-ceiling windows. The floors, kitchen cabinets, and bathroom vanities are finished in Austrian smoked oak. Martin also owns an apartment in Yorkville at 170 East End Avenue, which he bought in 2012 for $6 million, so we’re guessing he’s planning to spend his time there.
