“A dose of reality for Mr. Hilfiger”: Fashion designer cuts millions off price of Plaza Hotel penthouse

Tommy Hilfiger is giving the market another go by re-listing his Plaza Hotel penthouse for $50 million.

That’s a 37.5 percent discount from the last time the fashion designer listed the unit, the Wall Street Journal reported. Hilfiger most recently marketed the duplex for $58.9 million in November 2016 before yanking it off the market in April.

“It’s a dose of reality for Mr. Hilfiger,” Nikki Field of Sotheby’s International Realty, told the Journal. “Listings are energized by value-related prices. We really feel good about this number.”

Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo, purchased two units in the building in 2008 for $25.5 million. They combined the units to form a duplex on the 18th and 19th floors, which spans 5,600 square feet. The couple spent roughly $20 million renovating and combining the units. Hilfiger told the Journal that they are selling the unit because he and his wife spend more time at their homes in Greenwich Connecticut and in Palm Beach, Florida.

“I’m of the belief that if it sells, it sells. If it doesn’t sell, I’ll just keep it,” Hilfiger said. [WSJ]Kathryn Brenzel
