Buyin’ on a prayer: Bon Jovi drops $12.9M at 150 Charles

Rocker inked contract at Witkoff Group condo project in 2013

He’ll “never say goodbye” – to New York City, that is.

On the heels of selling his $34 million Soho penthouse, rocker Jon Bon Jovi closed on a $12.9 million condo at the Witkoff Group’s 150 Charles Street on Aug. 27, according to documents that hit public records Thursday.

Bon Jovi, whose actual name is John Bongiovi, went into contract in March of 2013 when the new development hit the market. His new pad has four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.

While no doubt luxurious, the move is nonetheless a downsize for the duck face-suffering New Jersey native, who sold his six-bedroom penthouse at 158 Mercer Street in June. He bought that condo for $27 million in 2007, and listed it for $42 million in 2013.

Closings at Steve Witkoff’s 150 Charles began in June, according to StreetEasy. The 91-unit West Village condominium took just three months to sell out when it hit the market in 2013, including a penthouse that was asking $35 million.
