After two strikes on the sales front, the 3BR, 3BA penthouse at 525 West 22nd Street's Spears Building has finally found a buyer. Financier Anson Beard and wife Debra Walker Beard paid $7.75 million for the apartment. (Apparently, some people don't mind the lack of a bathtub.) It is, the Observer notes, the highest price ever paid for a Spears Building apartment. For the sellers?Corcoran broker Alan Sands and his wife, Fortunoff heir Amy Sands?that might take the sting out of all the PriceChoppage: they were asking $9.48 million when they first put the penthouse on the market in 2008.
