Editor’s note: Original reports listed George Condo as the buyer of the Carhart Mansion’s penthouse, belonging to Tamara Mellon, but he actually bought a different unit in the building from Merrill Lynch’s Do Woo Kim.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a pair of discounted Jimmy Choos, but the iconic shoe brand’s co-founder Tamara Mellon didn’t fare as well when it came to her Upper East Side penthouse, which sits atop the historic Carhart Mansion at 3 East 95th Street. Mellon bought the Carnegie Hill apartment from Seagram heir Charles Bronfman Jr. and first listed it for sale in 2014 for $34 million. After several price chops and an attempt as a $85,000/month rental, it’s finally found a buyer reports LL NYC. Contemporary artist George Condo paid $19.8 million for the condo (no pun intended), much less than the most recent ask of $25 million.
