Is it possible to have too many units in the same Greenwich Village co-op? Fashion designer Anna Sui would probably say no, but then, she's a little biased. She already owns two apartments in 31 West 12th Street, a ninth-floor 1BR and a separate penthouse into which she expanded in 2008. At the time, she told ShelterPop, "With two apartments, I can have dinner downstairs and drinks and dessert upstairs." Now she can also have a place for hors d'oeuvres, or maybe just an extra-large closet: according to public records, it looks like she's also purchased #9W for $2.3 million. There's no listing online, so we can't see what the place looks like. But maybe she'll take some design inspiration from her penthouse in the building.
