For $15.995 million, Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi has finally sold his duplex apartment at 150 Charles Street, a celebrity haven in the West Village. But the “Livin’ on a Prayer” singer isn’t moving too far away; he recently bought a nearly $19 million apartment in the Greenwich Lane, a condominium project that stretches almost a full city block between 12th and 11th Streets off Seventh Avenue. While Bon Jovi attempted to sell the duplex as a $29.5 million combo unit with a neighboring duplex this summer, the apartment went into contract alone, for $15.995 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Jon Bon Jovi hasn’t released a new album in quite some time, but one way he’s managed to stay in the spotlight is his real estate game. In 2015, he sold his Soho penthouse for $34 million, shortly thereafter picking up a sprawling duplex condo at new celeb-favorite 150 Charles Street for $13 million. Less than two months ago, he listed the West Village pad for $17.25 million, but he’s already gotten impatient, now offering the pad as part of a $29.5 million combo unit with the neighboring duplex according to Curbed.

“Never Say Goodbye” certainly doesn’t hold true when it comes to Bon Jovi’s real estate game. Exactly two years ago, the Jersey rocker unloaded his Soho penthouse for a hefty $34 million, shortly thereafter picking up a sprawling duplex condo at new celeb-favorite 150 Charles Street for $13 million. But now, as Curbed tells us, he’s on the move again, listing the West Village pad for $17.25 million. That upgraded price tag will get you over 4,000 square feet of contemporary interiors, plus a massive 52′ x 29′ landscaped terrace and two smaller balconies.

When Sports Illustrated supermodel Irina Shayk bought a $6 million condo at celebrity favorite 150 Charles Street back in February, it was rumored that she’d be shacking up there with boyfriend Bradley Cooper. But it looks like she was getting in on the investment game; only six months later she’s put the two-bedroom spread on the rental market for $20,000 a month.
The Observer reports that Shayk never even moved in to the West Village building, where Ben Stiller, Jon Bon Jovi, and fashion photographer Steven Klein have also purchased units. This could be because she’s still living at her other West Village condo at 166 Perry Street, which she listed last December for $4 million. Regardless, the new tenant of this sleek abode will be in good company.

Ben Stiller and wife Christine Taylor are the latest A-listers to pick up a pad at the West Village‘s luxury condominium 150 Charles Street. As the Observer reports, the couple paid $15.31 million for a 3,395-square-foot, full-floor spread with gorgeous Hudson River views. They’ll be joining other big names at the address, including supermodel Irina Shayk, who bought a $6 million apartment in February, Jon Bon Jovi, who paid $12.88 million for a 10-room spread in September, and famed fashion photographer Steven Klein, who dropped $12.5 million on a unit in March.
More on their new digs
The rich, famous and those who love photographing the rich and famous are quickly flocking to 150 Charles Street, creating a modern-day celeb hideout in the heart of the Village. According to city records just released, famed fashion photographer Steven Klein has just purchased an eight-room condo for $12.5 million (the home was originally listed for $14 million). Klein joins other high-profile names including supermodel Irina Shayk who scooped up an apartment at the same address for $6 million just last month, and rocker Jon Bon Jovi, who paid $12.88 million for a 10-room spread in September. Fun side fact: In addition to shooting ads for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga, as well as editorials for Vogue and W magazines, Klein has also photographed new neighbor Bon Jovi!
If you don’t know supermodel Irina Shayk from the pages of Sports Illustrated, you may recognize her as the often-photographed girlfriend of Bradley Cooper. Rumors have been circulating for nearly a year that the couple was looking to shack up together. First, Cooper was spotted checking out a sprawling $8.5 million spread at the Hubert in Tribeca in May, then Shayk listed her apartment at 166 Perry Street in the West Village for $4 million back in December. LLNYC now reports that the swimsuit model has picked up an off-market $6 million pad at 150 Charles Street, nearby in the West Village.

It looks like Jon Bon Jovi has no plans on leaving New York behind. After finally unloading his $34 million Soho penthouse earlier this year, according to the Observer, the rocker has just paid $12.88 million for a sprawling ten-room apartment at the brand new 150 Charles Street in the West Village. There are no photos of the new spread to be found just yet, however, if his old home is any indication of taste, he’s probably taken up residence in one of the high-floor apartments sporting double height ceilings and super tall windows framing views of the city and the Hudson River. The building itself has a 75-foot lap pool, a 3,000 square foot fitness center, and 40,000 square feet of private outdoor space.
