New dad and former “30 Rock” star Alec Baldwin has developed a reputation for warring with the paparazzi who camp outside his East Village apartment — but it seems they haven’t dulled his enthusiasm for his posh digs.
In fact, Baldwin has purchased yet another condominium unit at the Devonshire building at 28 East 10th Street for $75,000 over its asking price, according to public records filed with the city today. The hot-tempered Emmy Award winner paid $2.25 million for the one-bedroom, one-bathroom pad, which is on the eighth floor of the prewar Emory Roth-designed building.
Baldwin and his yoga instructor wife, Hilaria Baldwin, already own several units at the trendy property, which was converted by the Cheshire Group in 2009. Before their marriage, Baldwin shelled out $11.7 million for the penthouse in 2011, which had three bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms and a master bedroom suite that took up an entire wing of the condo. Then, last year, an adjacent unit was purchased under Hilaria’s name for $1.21 million. The latest unit does not appear to connect with the main apartment.
It’s possible that the couple may use the new apartment as a home for their nanny. They welcomed a new baby, named Carmen Gabriela, earlier this month. Baldwin’s spokesperson declined to comment.
The apartment belonged to Johan Lundgren, a travel company executive. The deal, which appears to have closed in June despite having just hit public records, was brokered on behalf of the seller by Douglas Elliman’s John Gomes, Fredrik Eklund and Kajsa Ringlow Hutton, according to StreetEasy.
The Elliman team declined to comment on the sale. Lundgren could not be reached.
