Prudential Douglas Elliman power broker Raphael De Niro, the son of actor Robert De Niro, has purchased an apartment in the Tribeca condominium known as 60 Collister Street, The Real Deal has learned. Public records show that the broker paid $3.53 million for the 3,850-square-foot corner loft in the converted 19th-century stable, whose alternate address is 157 Hudson Street and is situated between Laight and Hubert streets.

Fredrik Eklund, the Prudential Douglas Elliman broker who headed up sales at the project with group partner John Gomes, declined to comment on De Niro’s purchase. The sale hit public record last week, despite closing May 31.

While De Niro bought the unit under an anonymous LLC, he applied for a mortgage using his current address, 497 Greenwich Street, records show. He and his wife, Claudine, purchased the three-bedroom Greenwich Street property in 2009 for $2.9 million. They put it on the market in May for $3.7 million with Sarah Dai of Prudential Douglas Elliman. It may have already found a buyer, since it was taken off the market two weeks ago.

The Collister Street unit was asking $3.99 million and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The VE Equities project hit the market in February with prices ranging from $3.5 million for a 2,400-square-foot, two-bedroom unit, to $8 million for the final 4,000-square-foot penthouse. All of the units were in contract within seven weeks.

De Niro did not respond to requests for comment.
