Larry Silverstein, the man behind the redevelopment of much of the World Trade Center, has decided to list the Park Avenue apartment he's called home for more than 33 years.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Silverstein, who is 86, and his wife Klara, 85, have lived in the five-bedroom Midtown apartment since they moved from White Plains after their children went off to college.
Now, they’re planning a move downtown: The couple purchased a $34 million penthouse at 30 Park Place—developed by Silverstein himself—which is just two blocks from his office at the World Trade Center. (According to StreetEasy, the Park Avenue home has been listed for more than a month, which could explain the press push now.)
As the WSJ notes, “From their window, he and his wife will be able to peer out at the office buildings 3 World Trade Center and 4 World Trade Center, which his company built.” The couple’s daughter, Lisa Silverstein, is also moving into 30 Park with her family.
As for the Midtown property, it’s a full-floor, 4,653-square-foot condominium that’s asking $13.9 million. A living room boasts views of Central Park, with sliding doors to separate it from a formal dining room. The apartment also has a paneled library with a wood-burning fireplace.
There are five bedrooms and five baths total; the master suite comes with Central Park Views and plenty of closet space, while four spacious secondary bedrooms, each with private bathrooms.
