Moby sells El Dorado penthouse for $6.7M

Alternative rock singer Moby sold his penthouse at the El Dorado, the twin-towered cooperative apartment at 300 Central Park West near 90th Street, for $6.7 million.

Moby, whose real name is Richard Melville Hall, closed on the sale of the four-floor unit to T.M. Dempsey, on August 21, according to city records published today.

Moby had trouble selling the unit, which was originally listed in 2007. The coop board rejected a buyer in January who offered close to the asking price of $7.5 million, and it was returned to the market.

The singer bought the apartment in the south tower of the 28-story building, constructed in 1931, for $4.5 million in 2005.
