Ex-Con Buys 'Ultimate Teardown'

New, 6 comments

Just when you thought the tale of Tribeca's Skylofts couldn't get any more wacky (they tore down the penthouse and rebuilt it, for cryin' out loud), The Real Deal reports on the guy that just bought the penthouse for a cool $30 million: "The buyer, William Duker, was sentenced in 1997 to 33 months in prison and fined $7,500 for overbilling the FDIC and the Resolution Trust Company. He also paid $2.58 million covering criminal restitution and civil damages. Duker, now a private investor living in upstate New York, said he purchased the Hudson Street penthouse as an investment and not as a personal residence." [Real Deal, previously]
