British real estate mogul brothers Christian and Nick Candy are continuing to scope out the crème de la crème of the Manhattan property market, the New York Post reported.
Monaco-based Christian and London-based Nick have looked at Harry Macklowe’s 432 Park Avenue, according to the Post, and have also expressed interest in the $125 million triplex penthouse at the Pierre and condos at the new Baccarat development.
The brothers also made a $60 million bid on the 9,799-square-foot, six-bedroom penthouse at the Mark, but failed to follow through. And now, they have their sights set on a single family mansion uptown, sources told the Post.
Of course, the high profile duo seems to have a bit of trouble putting their money where their mouths are, something that has led one real estate insider to tell the Post that “people are over them.” [NYP, 1st item] – Hiten Samtani
