The brakes have been put on the sale of late heiress Huguette Clark's two 8th floor apartments at 907 Fifth Avenue. The unnamed buyer, who was prepared to pay $31 million for 8E ($12 million) and 8W ($19 million), got a "not so fast" turn down from a board unhappy about the prospect of the two units being combined into a single floor-through apartment. Other buyers interested in the two apartments were also reportedly interested in creating one gigantic home. If the board won't budge, it wil be interesting to see how it affects the pricing on one or both of the units.
