  • Makkos apartment at 721 Fifth Avenue

    A glamorous Parisian-themed three-bedroom apartment in Trump Tower owned by the ex-wife of a hospitality mogul has hit the market today for $14.5 million.

    The 55th-floor apartment, at 721 Fifth Avenue, is owned by Evangelia Makkos, former wife of Thomas Makkos, Central Park food-cart king-turned-hospitality-magnate and owner of celebrity hot spot Nello restaurant at 696 Madison Avenue, according to public records. The couple divorced three years ago, a source with intimate knowledge about the listing said, and Evangelia and her daughter are ready to move on, perhaps to another building or even another city.

    Thomas and Evangelia together purchased the unit in 2000, according to public records. It was transferred into Evangelia’s name last month, records show. … [more]

  • Finding a market at last

    October 02, 2009 03:29PM

    From the October issue: Zhann Jochinke, an associate broker at Argo Residential, put an alcove
    studio on the market last year for $525,000. But the offers that came
    in were as low as $390,000. “People were putting bids out there just to
    see if the person had to sell,” he recalled. More recently, however, he
    convinced the seller to drop the price to around $490,000. Offers began
    coming in at “5 percent or less off the asking price,” he
    said. Now, the listing is in contract, and expected to close in the
    next month. After months of uncertainty, Manhattan buyers and sellers
    are finally
    making a market.
