The third-floor unit at Infinity Flats has been sitting on the market since January at an ask of $5.675 million, with no movement despite (cue brokerbabble) "the most stunning renovation you have ever seen." The PriceChopper laughs in the face of stunning renovations, because the apartment's broker tells us the place is getting chopped to $4.995 million today. And even that might not be enough blood and gore to do the trick, because the building's fourth floor is also on the market for less still, asking $4.295 million. And both floors three and four are asking more than the one Infinity Flats apartment that's in contract, #5, at $4 million. Is the renovation on #3 (photos above) good enough to merit such a markup over higher-floor units? And why are all of David Wright's neighbors abandoning him? We can only assume they're Yankees fans.
UPDATE: A tipster notes that unit #3 belongs to TV personality David Tutera. And another possible reason for the attempted mass exodus: the building will soon be home to a restaurant staffing only blind waiters.
