Swimsuit model Julie Henderson has just splashed out $3.3 million on a Flatiron apartment at 141 Fifth Avenue. The landmarked 12-story building at East 21st Street was built in 1897 and converted by Savanna Partners into condominiums three years ago.

Henderson, best known to her admirers as the star of a body-paint shoot in Sports Illustrated’s 2009 swimsuit issue, bought a 1,759-square-foot home on the sixth floor of the building, according to city records seen by the New York Daily News.

The apartment has large windows and an industrial design, according to the newspaper.

The Flatiron district seems to be hot property for models. Kate Upton was recently spotted scoping out apartments in the area, including Related Companies’ One Madison Park. [NYDN]Hiten Samtani
