Is there such a thing as owning too many 40 Bond Street apartments? For one mysterious family, who appears to own three apartments in the building, the answer seems to be yes. An LLC tied to the family has listed a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment for $2.995 million.
The apartment is owned by mystery Londoners who were the subject of a 2011 New York Magazine spread focusing on the design of their pied-à-terres (plural) in the Herzog & de Meuron building.
At the time of publish, the family appeared to own just two 40 Bond apartments: a three-bedroom floor through on the seventh floor—their primary pied-à-terre—and a two-bedroom on the floor below that the magazine wrote “was to be something of a pied-à-terre for their existing pied-à-terre—a place to host guests, throw parties, and escape from the four kids slowly annexing the apartment above.” (Cue the eyerolls.)
A month after the article was published, the LLC behind the sixth floor pad, Candy Jar LLC, picked up another apartment in the building: a two-bedroom, two and a half bathroom apartment on the ninth floor with a decidedly more open layout.
The new-to-market 40 Bond Street apartment on the sixth floor still sports the interiors that designer-architect Robert Couturier brought to the space in 2010, including smoked Austrian oak floors and Corian countertops in the kitchen. The listing’s details on the apartment are slim, but that makes it no less fun to look at.
The apartment is on the market with Carrie Chiang at Corcoran.
