Cool Listings, Midtown East

Everything goes on sale after Christmas, and that’s certainly true of hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen’s Beacon Court penthouse at 151 East 58th Street. The SAC Capital Advisors founder bought the 9,000-square-foot duplex for $24 million in 2005 and hired noted architect Charles Gwathmey to give it a once-over. The condo hit the market again in April of 2013 for a whopping $115M (around the time Cohen received a wrist-slap to the tune of $1.2 billion for insider trading). No takers at that price. Or the next one ($82M). Or the one after that ($79M)–you probably get where this is going. Where the five-bedroom aerie on the building’s 51st and 52nd floors ended up today: Deeply discounted to $45 million after eight price cuts adding up to a $70 million drop, making it the heftiest haircut to happen in New York City history according to The Real Deal.

East Village real estate dreams hardly ever come with as much square footage as this luxurious four-bedroom at 130 East 12th Street. For the current asking price of $12.5 million, you’ll get the building’s two-story penthouse plus a two-bedroom apartment on the floor below with its own private entrance. That totals up to a 6,414 square-foot, three-floor East Village palace for anyone with the right budget.

Celebrities, Recent Sales, Soho

Justin Timberlake is finally saying “bye, bye, bye” to his Soho penthouse, even though that meant taking a loss on it. He and wife Jessica Biel first bought the three-bedroom spread at Soho Mews for just over $6.5 million in 2010. But after they then purchased a $20 million penthouse at celeb-hotspot 443 Greenwich in March 2017, they listed their former Soho penthouse for $8 million. Since then, they’ve had to drop the price four times, most recently to $6.35 million, meaning the duo would take a loss on the sale. Now, The Real Deal reports that Timberlake and Biel have finally found a buyer at that price who is listed in city records anonymously as “Hudson Broadway LLC.”

91 Central Park West, William Randolph Hearst apartment, John Legere apartment, Central Park West co-op

Three years ago, T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere dropped $18 million on this palatial Upper West Side penthouse, but after first re-listing the sprawling duplex at 91 Central Park West for $22 million in February, he’s now dropped the price down to $17,995,000–meaning he’ll break completely even. Not only will the new buyer be able to say they’re living in William Randolph Hearst’s one-time home, but Legre worked with esteemed contemporary architectural design firm SheltonMindel to update the residence while retaining its magnificent historic details such as stained glass windows, elaborately carved woodwork, and ornate ceiling moldings. Plus, there’s an equally expansive private terrace overlooking the park.
