New, 2 comments

1) We thought we were finally done with Britney Spears and her Silk Building apartment on East 4th Street, especially after she finally sold it for $4 million after numerous pricechops. Then the new owners tried to rent it out for $32k/month, and now?following some renovation work and a restaging?they're trying to flip it for $6,595,000. Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group, who sold the apartment for Spears, is now trying to sell it again. Photos and floorplans from the listing are above. Nice Sculpture for Living view!

2) Where will Katie Holmes settle when she comes to New York to star on Broadway? Maybe the Upper East Side, where she recently toured a few furnished rentals with price tags exceeding $60k/month, including one in the 80s with six bedrooms. [Gimme Shelter/Braden Keil]

3) In an off-market deal, Heidi Klum's river-facing penthouse at 166 Bank Street sold for $5.6 million, to the owner of two apartments in the same building. If only Gisele were so lucky! [The Closer]

4) Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay, having grown tired of her Tribeca batcave, bought a penthouse atop Chelsea's O'Neill Building in November. She's already over it (or she's moving to the Upper East Side to be near her kid's preschool, like she says). The penthouse, which includes one of the O'Neill's restored gold domes, is on the market for $8.25 million. She bought it for $7 million. [Big Deal/Josh Barbanel]

5) Lovable, huggable Philip Seymour Hoffman has ended his two-year housing search in the Village, scooping up a 3BR, 3BA Jane Street co-op that has an asking price of $4.4 million. [Page Six]

6) Model Heather Marks is going door-to-door at the East Village's condo party palace the A Building and introducing herself as model Heather Marks. Sounds about right. [Page Six]
