Owner purchased cond-op across town last year

A deal for Goldman Sachs executive J. Michael Evans’s Park Laurel penthouse appears to have closed at the eleventh hour, before a new year brought anticipated hikes in capital gains taxes.Evans’ apartment, which had been listed for $26.5 million since September, traded in a last minute New Years Eve deal for $23.75 million, according to public records filed with the city today.

The Gwathmey-designed Upper West Side condo at 15 West 63rd Street had been listed by Sabrina Saltiel of Prudential Douglas Elliman. Saltiel was not immediately available for comment. The identity of the buyer, who shielded his or her identity using an LLC dubbed Shadywood Holdings, was not immediately clear.

Evans bought the 5,000-square-foot condo for $10.3 million in 2003. He was reportedly selling in order to reduce his exposure following his purchase in early 2012 of a $27 million cond-op at 995 Fifth Avenue.

The 40th- and 41st-floor duplex has five-bedrooms, five bathrooms and five half-bathrooms. Quirky features include a moving bookcase that seals off the study from the library. Another two-bedroom apartment owned by Evans on the 14th floor did not appear to be included in the deal.

As previously reported, Evans primarily used the property as a pied a terre from 2004 until 2010, when he was based in Goldman’s Hong Kong offices.
