Sting will be walking in fields of gold for quite some time after this deal.
The singer and his wife Trudie Styler’s duplex at 15 Central Park is reportedly under contract, after being listed in May for $56 million.
The buyer has agreed to pay $50 million for the 5,400-square-foot home in the Zeckendorf Development building, the New York Post reported. The apartment is on the 16th and 17th floor of the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building, and has four bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms, according to StreetEasy, which has not recorded the apartment as in contract.
“The deal is signed, but the sale won’t close until next year, which will give Sting and Trudie time to get their new apartment ready,” a source told the newspaper. The couple is reportedly buying a triplex at 220 Central Park South.
The former Police frontman paid $26.5 million for the 15 Central Park West apartment in 2008, according to the Post. Another apartment in the building also recently went under contract, last asking $31.5 million, according to StreetEasy. [NYP] — Miriam Hall
