Porter House

Celebrities, Cool Listings, Meatpacking District

Don’t worry, this interesting trio of notables didn’t live in this Meatpacking District condo at the same time. “South Park” co-creator Trey Parker lived in the loft-style, three-bedroom spread at the Porter House during the initial run of his Tony-winning Broadway show “Book of Mormon,” according to the Post, who also note that Academy Award-winning director Jason Batemen, best known for “Juno” and “Up in the Air,” as well as uber-conservative political commentator Glenn Beck have called this apartment home. And it’s currently on the market for $4.9 million or as a $13,900/month rental.

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.
