After deciding that he wants to move downtown, mega-developer Larry Silverstein has put his longtime Park Avenue pad on the market for $13.9 million, reports the Wall Street Journal. Silverstein Properties is responsible for much of the World Trade Center redevelopment, so it’s no surprise that Larry is opting to trade his Central Park views for those of the WTC site; last year, he and his wife Klara dropped $34 million on a penthouse at nearby 30 Park Place. The couple moved from White Plains to 500 Park Avenue 33 years ago when their children left for college.
The full, 37th-floor spread spans 4,653 square feet and has five bedrooms, a private elevator vestibule, a wood-paneled library, and, of course, those panoramic views.
Down on the 80th floor at Park Place, the Silversteins will directly face his buildings at 3 and 4 World Trade Center. He referred to the new digs as his family’s “own compound up in the sky,” as his daughter Lisa and her family are also moving into the building on a lower floor. He previously told the Journal that he and Klara “prefer to be where the young people are, which is downtown.” His three-and-half-minute commute doesn’t hurt either.
