Buyers of Laruen Bacall's Iconic Dakota Apartment Revealed

New, 13 comments

The buyers of Lauren Bacall's famed Dakota apartment have finally been outed. The Post reports that the coveted Central Park-facing apartment's new owners are Oaktree Capital managing director Ronald Beck and his wife, Cynthia. The duo snapped the nine-room apartment up in July, after it was listed in mid-November 2014 for $26 million. Bacall spent the last 53 years of her life in the apartment—she died at the age of 89 in 2014—and word has it that the silver screen maven paid between a mere $28,000 and $48,000 for the spread when she landed in the Upper West Side co-op in 1961. Talk about a smart investment.

UPDATE (11/24/15): Bacall's apartment sold for a discounted $21 million, NYO reports.
