Jenny from the Block could be looking to move to Chelsea’s Walker Tower. According to the NYP, Jennifer Lopez was spotted scoping out apartments alongside celebrity broker Fredrik Eklund. The pair reportedly checked out an unlisted apartment and eyed the floor plans of several other units over lunch. The Post notes that J Lo’s budget is around $20 million. With that in mind, might we suggest the building’s $25M duplex penthouse?

840 Broadway, Union Square Park, Flatiron-shaped building, Fredrik Eklund

Earlier in the year, this uniquely shaped apartment at 840 Broadway was for sale by owner, asking $5.8 million. However, it appears that after months of sitting on the market and a few price drops, said owner has called in the experts at Douglas Elliman, headed up by Fredrik Eklund, to save the day. The one-of-a-kind listing, currently priced at $4.95 million, is quite the marvel, with 14 giant windows, cast-iron columns, and closet space conveniently hidden around every corner.

downtown flips

At any given hour when you turn on a home design television channel you have about a 50% chance of landing on a realty show about flipping houses.  In real life, though, it’s not all hunky property brothers and fairy tale endings; trying to flip a house is a gamble, which is why oftentimes the most successful flippers are those on the inside, like real estate developers and seasoned brokers.

For anyone looking to make a flip, New York is ripe with opportunity thanks to low inventory and a constant race to be bigger and better.  Within the city, Downtown Manhattan is the ripest fruit on the vine.  Full of highly desirable, trendy neighborhoods, it’s a hot bed for investors.  There’s no textbook definition of a flip, but it’s generally thought of as a three-year turnover.  Downtown there have been 58 apartment swaps within the past three years.  We take a look at some of the greatest hits.

This way for all the triumphant flips
