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.┬áJohn 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
