The buyer of the duplex penthouse and 10th-floor apartment at Noho’s “jewel box” condo 1 Great Jones Alley has been revealed, and to the surprise of no one, said buyer is a finance bro. The Post reports that “party boy investor” Marc Leder dished out $30 million for the two adjacent apartments.
The penthouse, with its 1,000 square feet of outdoor space, private elevator entry, and media room with wet bar was on the market for $23.75 million. The second apartment Leder snapped up in the building is a $9.925 million 3,300-square-foot four-bedroom. Whether or not the apartments will be combined to create an 8,000-square-foot mega-pad is unclear, but seems likely.
Leder has gained a reputation in years past as the “Hugh Hefner of the Hamptons,” a descriptor that comes courtesy of Curbed Hamptons. The finance guy’s made waves in the surrounding seaside community in years past: in 2014, Leder picked up a Sagaponack mansion for $20 million after leaving behind the quiet Water Mill community he so endeared himself to through his mid-summer extravaganzas.
Friends tell the Post the divorced banker has “toned down his antics,” although for a person for whom babes en masse and speeding Escalades are the norm, that might not mean a whole lot.
