Will Ferrell and family have been sitting in contract on a loft at 345 West 13th Street since early March, and, livening up this summery Friday, the closing has finally hit public record. The buyer is a trustee named Matt Lichtenberg, who has apparently represented Ferrell in real estate deals before. So how much did Ron Burgundy pay for this 2,699-square-foot pad? $4.2 million, which is less than the $4.4 million hedge funder Joseph A. Lanasa III bought it for in 2006. The apartment was never officially on the market, so there are no listing photos, but some old floorplans hanging around offer possibilities for what Ferrell could do with the place.
