Superstar DJ Tiesto eyes Downtown penthouses

Tiesto, reportedly the world’s second highest paid electronic DJ, is scoping out pricey Manhattan apartments following a headlining performance at the Electric Zoo festival on Randall’s Island two weekends ago.

The Dutch dance and trance music guru, whose real name is Tijs Michiel Verwest, has been spinning up a storm at Las Vegas night club Hakkaasan this summer. But he recently toured Downtown penthouses with Gordon von Broock of the Corcoran Group, the broker said.

The pair checked out a three-bedroom co-op spread at 6 Hudson Street in Tribeca and a three-bedroom co-op at 684 Broadway in Noho earlier this week, Von Broock said.

The 3,000-square-foot Hudson Street unit overlooks Duane Park and comes with a second bedroom and home office which are hidden behind a secret moving bookcase, according to the listing by Amanda Sawyer and Noble Black of Corcoran. The home is on the market for $10 million.

The Broadway penthouse, on the corner of Great Jones Street, has a private roof garden with wild flowers, herbs, birch trees and an outdoor shower. It’s asking $7.65 million and is listed by Bernice Leventhal and Sarah Thompson, also of Corcoran.

While the six- and seven-figure price tags may be steep, the DJ is the highest paid in the world besides Calvin Harris, according to a Forbes magazine 2013 ranking. In a recent interview with the New York Times, he said he was so rich he no longer has to DJ for money but only continues for the love of the music.

It was not clear if Tiesto was considering purchasing either of the properties. Or perhaps he’s just waiting for the drop… in price.

While it was not clear where Tiesto is primarily based, he previously owned a corner townhouse on Aqua Island in Miami. That property was recently sold.

A spokesperson for Tiesto was not immediately available for comment.
