Related Companies CEO Jeff Blau has relisted his impressive three-bedroom co-op in the Rosario Candela-designed 1040 Fifth Avenue with brokerage CORE (which Related just
acquired [EDIT: CORE was not acquired; Shaun Osher and Related are now equal partners in CORE.]). Originally listed for $43 million back in January, the apartment had its price chopped down to $38 million before being taken off the market in June. Now it's back asking $34.5 million, which would still be a substantial profit for Blau, who bought the apartment for $21.42 million in 2008. This isn't the first trophy apartment he's had to pricechop, either.
