Dakota board chief finds buyer for co-op unit, listed at $29.6M

The head of the Dakota’s co-op board, hedge-funder Bruce Barnes apartment at the storied building — listed for $29.6 million — is in contract, Curbed reported. The property was first listed this past April and, according to, the price never changed. John Burger at Brown Harris Stevens had the listing.

The home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The listing also says that the unit has undergone a renovation to restore its 19th-century details, such as plaster moldings, pocket doors and hand-carved woodwork.

A source to Curbed said that Barnes wanted to leave the building due to the Alphonse Fletcher Jr. lawsuit. As previously reported, a state judge has allowed the lawyers representing Fletcher to drop the lawsuit against the Dakota’s co-op board. [Curbed]Zachary Kussin
