Maybe summer really is the best time to try to sell an apartment in Shigeru Ban's Metal Shutter Houses. The penthouse returned to market in June?after first trying out a $10.5 million ask in 2007?with a hefty $12.95 million price tag. The original buyer backed out of the deal and Shigeru Ban flew in to redesign the place, according to the Times. Apparently there's nothing Shigeru can't fix, because the sale just hit public record, and the apartment found a happy medium between the '07 and '11 prices: $11,455,312. The buyer is a Georgia-based LLC.
