In case you haven't been paying close attention, Kelly Ripa bought the 6,700-square-foot Soho loft on Crosby Street that Nicole Kidman had been living in. The price was somewhere around $9 million. Ripa and her family had actually been living in the same building, in a full-floor three-bedroom loft just one floor below (see pics, above), so once the deal was sealed on Kidman's spot they put the old place on the market for $7.5 million. OK, now that you're caught up, the Observer's Michael Calderone reports two new pieces of fascinating information. (1) After just four weeks on the market, Ripa's old place has gone under contract, and (2) the couple had bought the place in 2002 for just $2.8 million. Now, they did put in $860,000 to renovate the place, but still, that's quite the power play. Over $3 million in profit in just three years? Here's something we never thought we'd say: Kelly Ripa, Curbed salutes you.
