Moby Unloads 'Tiny' Mott Street Spot After 18 Years

New, 10 comments

Electronic music-maker Moby has sold his long-time Mott Street crash pad. The real estate mobul (get it?) purchased the apartment between Houston and Prince Street in 1996 for a meager $215,750, only now, following a well-publicized diatribe on the city's expense and exclusivity, to sell the pad for $1.95 million, earning him nearly a $1.5 million profit. The penthouse—which, according to Gothamist, gossip site TMZ somewhat amusingly referred to as "tiny"—has one bedroom plus a sleeping loft and covers 950 square feet over two stories, plus a 870-square-foot private roof deck.

The man-of-many-trades can count real estate maven and design mogul towards his talents: Moby previously unloaded a pre-war apartment in the Upper West Side's El Dorado, and a loft penthouse at 7 Bond Street.
