Hedge fund manager David Ganek of advisory firm Level Global Investors and his novelist wife Danielle are in contract to buy a penthouse condominium at developer Jared Kushner’s Puck Building in Soho for $28 million.

The 6,000-square-foot, three-bedroom apartment is one of six at the penthouse-only building at 295 Lafayette Street. Douglas Elliman brokers Dennis Mangone and Raphael De Niro had the listing, the New York Post reported. The sale was for more than $4,500 per square foot.

The apartment features cast-iron columns, vaulted ceilings and outdoor space. David and Danielle Ganek are expected to soon list their co-op at 740 Park Avenue; they bought it in 2005 for $19 million, according to the Post. Last year, as part of a jewelry theft at 740 Park, they lost diamond earrings, two Patek Philippe watches and more jewelry worth nearly $100,000.

In May, the first of the units there closed for $28 million, as previously reported. [NYP, 3rd item]Mark Maurer
