Britney Spears’ old Noho penthouse at 14 East 4th Street (the Silk Building) is making a go on the market “one more time.” The Observer noticed that the 4,400-square-foot apartment, which hit the market for $7.6 million at the beginning of the year, has returned as a $24,000 a month rental. Though the four-floor spread is large and lovely, it’s had quite a “toxic” sales history.
The apartment that once belonged to the pop star behind “Hit Me Baby One More Time” is now on the market. Yes, Britney Spears’ old Noho penthouse at 14 East 4th Street, a.k.a. the Silk Building, is looking for $7.6 million. This price tag is only the latest in a saga of trying to sell the place. It begins in 2002, when Britney purchased her penthouse for $3 million. She quickly listed it in 2004 for $6 million and the unit went through many price cuts before finally selling in 2006 for $4 million. The new buyers then listed the apartment in 2008 for $6.595 million and experimented with different price cuts until 2011; it never sold. Then it hit the market last year for $9 million, now it’s back with another price cut. This apartment is about as unpredictable as its former owner.
