150 columbus avenue penthouse, marv albert

Famed sportscaster Marv Albert has found a buyer for his sprawling penthouse located at 150 Columbus Avenue. The NYDN reports the “Voice of Basketball” and his wife, former ESPN producer Heather Albert, just inked a contract that points to a $14.9 million deal. The couple originally purchased the 3,553-square-foot penthouse back in 1996 for just $2.39 million, calling it their home for years before heading down to Tribeca—and turning this pretty sweet profit. The penthouse was listed just five months ago.

2112 Broadway, Apple Bank Building, David Abelow, Abelow Sherman Architects

The listing for penthouse B at the Apple Bank Building has returned this week, asking $9.68 million. The David Abelow-designed condo first appeared on the market a year ago, asking $12 million. Then the property was delisted earlier this year after dropping its price to $10 million. Now, this 4,055-square-foot duplex may reside in a Beaux Arts building built in 1927, but you wouldn’t know it by the looks of its modern interior. In fact, house hunters might be pleasantly surprised to find a state-of-the-art, chef’s kitchen right out of the space age waiting for them as they enter.

66 9th Avenue, Porter House, floor plan by Kevin Bergin, three-unit flip

It looks like someone is trying to accomplish a pretty impressive flip. Since September 2012 an investor has gradually acquired the three units that occupy the sixth floor of the Porter House, paying almost $13 million. Now the entire floor is back on the market as one potential dream home package for a whopping $22 million. (Now that’s appreciation if we’ve ever heard of it.) While the nearly double asking price may raise a few eyebrows, there are a few incentives for prospective buyers in the form of a fresh paint job and a masterfully crafted floor plan by up-and-coming NYC architect Kevin Bergin. Admittedly, it’s not a complete remodel, but it’s a start. Let’s take a look inside so you can judge for yourself.
