Corcoran Group’s Andrea Wohl Lucas – who had a cameo at Douglas Elliman last year but ultimately returned to Corcoran – has apparently had a change of heart. Again.

Lucas, who has represented celebs such as Lenny Kravitz, Martin Scorcese, Kelsey Grammer, has rejoined Elliman, Chairman Howard Lorber told The Real Deal.

He said the veteran agent will be joining the marketing team at 215 Chrystie Street, a hotel and condominium being developed by hotelier Ian Schrager and developer Steve Witkoff. The 370-room hotel will sit at the base of the tower, which will be topped by 11 condos. There are three units for sale at 215 Chrystie, according to StreetEasy, including a 4,236-square-foot penthouse asking $18.75 million, or $4,426 per foot.

“She wanted to come back,” Lorber said. And, he added, “As the building nears completion, we felt we needed someone else to help out” with sales and marketing. Two brokers previously working at 215 Chrystie — Elliman’s Dennis Mangone and Kirk Rundhaug — are now marketing 160 Leroy, another nearby Schrager condo.

Lucas went back and forth between Corcoran and Elliman in 2015, amid a series of broker moves that included Corcoran’s Bill Cunningham, who spent eight months as president of Trump International Realty before rejoining Corcoran as general sales manager of the firm’s flagship office on Madison Avenue.

More recently, Sotheby’s International Realty veteran Brenda Powers, a longtime business partner of Elizabeth Sample, left Sotheby’s for Compass and later Town Residential, before returning to Sotheby’s earlier this month.
