Celebrity Real Estate Wrap: Santana Throws UES Curveball

New, 1 comment

1) The Mets may play in Queens, but what, you thought new ace Johan Santana would buy a place in Long Island City or something? Heck no. In fact, "well-placed sources" spilled the beans that Santana has gone to contract on a 3BR, 3.5BA new condo at 170 East End Avenue, at 87th Street. The cost is just over $3 million. The apartment is on a lower floor in the 19-story building, a former Development Du Jour that sports a squash court, a "virtual" golf course and, apparently, livestock. A-Rod has supposedly checked out the place, too. [Braden Keil/Gimme Shelter]

2) A Curbed reader writes, "I'm a West Village owner on Bank Street. 113-115 Bank Street has been demolished except for the front facade that is landmarked. Rumor has it that Kenneth Cole is moving in, and has plans for an underground garage and swimming pool. Any truth to this rumor?" We would say no, because Cole just plunked down $14.5 million for a co-op in One Sutton Place South, but crazier things have happened. [CurbedWire Inbox]

3) We don't know much about Raffaello Follieri except that he's dating Anne Hathaway, he got arrested for bouncing big checks and he's checked out nearly every on-the-market townhouse in the city. The latest is this $16 million home at 47 West 9th Street, which Follieri was supposed to pay a $1.5 million deposit on, but he "disappeared" because, duh, the dude has no money!
