The Real Deal New York

Roone Arledge’s former Park Avenue pad in contract

The late ABC icon’s home was asking $38M

The former home of the late ABC Sports and News broadcasting pioneer Roone Arledge has entered contract.

The 15th floor co-op at 778 Park Avenue that once belonged to the 37-time Emmy Award winner was listed in September for $38 million. Arledge’s family first listed the apartment in 2013 for $29 million, the New York Post reported.

The full-floor unit has four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and a private terrace. Brown Harris Stevens’ Kathleen Sloane had the listing.

William F. Buckley is among the other notables who once occupied a unit in the Rosario Candela-designed building. [NYP] — Claire Moses
