    The New York State Supreme Court granted the celebrity-studded El Dorado co-op on Central Park West the green light to evict transgender heiress Diane Wells, the New York Daily News reported.

    Wells owes over $230,000 in maintenance fines and legal fees, representatives for the building told the Daily News. The heiress, who has lived in a three-bedroom apartment at the El Dorado for 23 years, butted heads with the co-op board last year when she fell behind on maintenance payments and allegedly filled the hallways and an upstairs apartment with cigarette smoke.

    Donald Trump
    Following the purchase of the Doral Golf Resort in Miami late last month, developer Donald Trump said today that he’s now looking all over the country for new real estate. He called into CNBC this morning and mentioned that Palm Beach, Fla., where he owns the Mar-a-Lago Club, is a good place to invest. “Palm Beach is a unique place,” Trump said. “It’s just rich and good,” mainly because he said that Palm Beach “is never affected by the economy,” though he did not specify exactly why.

    A combination of two rarely available El Dorado apartments — one of them the former home of famed Holocaust scholar Robert Jay Lifton — has already generated a near-asking-price offer since hitting the market last week, brokers said. Cathy Taub, an executive vice president at Stribling & Associates, has listed Lifton’s old stomping grounds at 300 Central Park West for $7.2 million. The eight-room co-op, 7G, is now owned by one of the richest families in the country, the MacArthurs, according to broker sources. The unit can be sold individually, or for $13.4 million, combined with the adjacent apartment to create a 15-room spread. Also, a townhouse that hit the market today for $4.95 million comes with a waterfall. The four-story brownstone at 157 West 87th Street is listed with Vandenberg, the Townhouse Experts.

  • Moby and his penthouse at 300 Central Park West

    A pre-war penthouse in the El Dorado building at 300 Central Park
    West, formerly belonging to alternative rock singer and Lower East Side real estate investor Moby,

    was recently listed for $4.995 million, down from $5.995 million in
    January, Curbed reported. The artist paid $4.5 million for the two-bedroom, two-and-a-half

    bathroom unit back in 2005. Listed for $7.5 million in 2007, the
    four-floor, multi-terraced property on the 31st floor eventually sold
    for $6.7 million, after a previous party was denied by the El Dorado’s

    co-op board. The owner listed on the deed is T.M. Dempsey, who is now
    looking to sell. Ann Lenane of Prudential Douglas Elliman has the
    listing. [Curbed]
