Walker Tower buyer flips out — $2.9M profit after one week?

December 13, 2013 02:41PM

The buyer of a two-bedroom condominium at Walker Tower is trying for the high-profile Chelsea building’s first resale.

One week after purchasing the 2,179-square-foot unit for $5 million, the owner, Burt Freiman, listed it for almost $7.9 million, Curbed reported, citing StreetEasy. CORE brokers Reba Miller, Susan Rubell and Julia Cole have the listing. (CORE had initially been marketing the JDS Development and Property Markets Group project, until Douglas Elliman took over when CORE’s Vickey Barron joined the firm.)

Sales at the 1929 building, converted to condos from its previous use as copper wire storage by Verizon, launched in June 2012. Closings began last month, as previously reported. Actress Cameron Diaz and eponymous cosmetics line owner Laura Mercier picked up units at the property, at 212 West 18th Street, in the last week.
