Floorplan Porn: Puttin' on the Ritz, Then Ditching It

New, 6 comments

Scott Bommer is the Liberace of Manhattan real estate?in showmanship, not wardrobe (though we have yet to peek into his closet). The well-compensated hedgie paid a co-op record $46 million for a fixer-upper at 1060 Fifth Avenue, and when that record was broken, he turned around and flipped the place for $48.9 million, restoring order in the Bommerverse. While that was going on, Bommer also picked up the full 29th floor at the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton at 50 Central Park South for $28.5 million. Just four months later, the Times' Josh Barbanel reports that Bommer is trying to flip this one as well, for $35 million. Corcoran superbroker Leighton Candler has the listing (currently her fourth most expensive), and while the interior shots are slightly meh, it's the 5,894-square-foot condo's floorplan that's the winner, with its pair of park-fronting terraces and a master bath that just won't quit. We're not sure why Bommer is bailing, but we eagerly await the hijinx at his next stop.
