Ex-Deputy Mayor's Upper West Side Townhouse Asks $13M

New, 15 comments


Dan Doctoroff isn't a name you hear all that often, but in his role as one of Bloomberg's deputy mayors from 2001 to 2007, he oversaw the development of some of the city's most high-profile projects, including the World Trade Center, Atlantic Yards, Governor's Island, the High Line, and Brooklyn Bridge Park. Now, he's selling his Upper West Side townhouse and asking an impressive $13 million. The 25'-wide, five-floor limestone mansion was built in 1896 by Clarence True, architect of the landmarked Leech House. Doctoroff and his wife bought the place out of foreclosure for $1 million way back in 1994 and spent millions on a full gut renovation. A "low stoop" townhouse, it features big wrought-iron doors at street-level, plus a formal dining room with high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling bay windows in the living room, a wet bar, gas and wood-burning fireplaces, and a fully landscaped garden. New amenities include an elevator, central air, and a finished basement with a gym. · Listing: 309 West 91st Street [Elliman]
