Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Bjork Denied on Baxter, Trump Hard, Britney Back?

New, 1 comment

1) Holy Hester Street! Bjork and Matthew Barney almost nabbed the penthouse at the Machinery Exchange, but then some anonymous person who'd better be even more artistic and famous and rich beat them to it! Little Chitaly, you almost made it! But what of Bjork's big black boat? [NYM/S. Jhoanna Robledo]

2) Martin Scorsese has upgraded on the Upper East Side. He sold his longtime home on East 62nd Street a little while back for just over $6 million, and now he's moving to a 7,000-square-foot 1920s townhouse on East 64th Street, for which he paid $12.5 million. That should provide plenty of room for his eyebrows to really spread out. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]

3) We're betting that once Eugenia Kaye ousted Donald Trump Jr. from the board of Trump Place at 220 Riverside Boulevard, life wasn't made very pleasant for her. So she sold her 2,318-square-foot condo for $4.26 million to ... Bruce Willis! We know that Willis enjoys a Trump building or two, because he did own a massive Trump Tower duplex. Said Papa Trump about Kaye: "I feel sorry for the people in the building she’s going to." What a classy guy! [Manhattan Transfers/Max Abelson]

4) After the epic Silk Buildng debacle, can the city's real estate market handle another Britney Spears daliance? And in the West Village, no less? Andrew Berman is already organizing the picket line. [Keil]
