A full-floor Lenox Hill co-op trades for $17M and a Brooklyn Heights townhouse goes for $6M
New York City’s residential sales last week saw a Broadway theater operator sell his Park Avenue co-op and a pair of designers behind a bohemian clothing line let go of their West Village townhouse for $9 million.
Source: A TRD review of public records filed with the New York City Department of Finance from April 12 to April 19.
1. A full-floor co-op on the 13th floor of 4 East 72nd Street is off the market for $16.75 million. The buyers of the 15-room Lenox Hill pad, located steps from Central Park and a block from the Frick Collection, were Loews Corporation’s vice president of corporate development Benjamin Tisch, son of the firm’s CEO Jim Tisch, and his wife, Daniela Weber Tisch. Brown Harris Stevens’ Caroline Berthet listed the over 6,000-square-foot unit for $20 million in October.
2. The founders of clothing line Haute Hippie have said goodbye to their West Village townhouse, which had been the subject of a feud with the developer next door, for $8.9 million. Jesse Warner Cole and Trish Wescoat Pound bought the 19th-century, four-bedroom home at 208 West 11th Street for $6.15 million in 2013. A few years later, the designers tried to stop the Jackson Group from redeveloping the neighboring property, claiming the project would block their sunlight. Eventually, the couple put the home on the market in 2017 for $11.29 million. Leslie J. Garfield’s Matthew Pravda and Compass’ Keith Copley had the listing.
3. Steven Eisenstadt, CEO and president of Cumberland Packing Corp. — the family-owned business behind Sweet’N Low and Sugar in the Raw — and Jennifer Eisenstadt sold a five-bedroom, four-story Brooklyn Heights townhouse for $5.7 million. It had been listed in November for $5.95 million. The sale of 69 Joralemon Street comes after Eisenstadt bought a $12 million townhouse at 218 Columbia Heights, about four blocks from the Joralemon Street property and even closer to the Brooklyn waterfront. The buyer of the most recent deal, listed by the Corcoran Group’s Leslie Marshall and James Cornell, was “69 Joralemon Street LLC.”
4. Broadway theater magnate Robert Nederlander parted with a two-bedroom co-op in the Ritz Tower for $2 million. Nederlander, who was once a managing general partner of the Yankees, had picked up the 12th-floor unit at 465 Park Avenue in 2011 for $2.25 million. The new owner is Popper Investments Inc. Brown Harris Stevens’ Caroline E. Y. Guthrie had the listing.
