Steven Hafner and Walker Tower 18A

It’s been just over a year since Kayak.com CEO Steven Hafner scooped up a $24 million duplex at Walker Tower — but it appears he’s ready to part ways with the pad.

Hafner, who bought the 18th-floor condominium from Property Markets Group principal Elliott Joseph in August 2016, has listed the 5,000-square-foot unit for $28 million, Curbed reports. Though he’s seeking a $4 million flip, not much has changed about the penthouse, which is being marketed by Corcoran Group’s Vickey Barron.

Its $28 million price tag makes it one of the most expensive units on the market at Walker Tower. The building’s Penthouse 1, which is ensnared in the 1MDB scandal and is up for grabs for $45 million, currently has the highest asking price. It sold for $50.9 million in 2014, making it the most expensive penthouse ever to trade hands in Downtown Manhattan.

Hafner’s four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom apartment has seen its fair share of time on the market. PMG’s Joseph first listed 18A in August 2015 for $34 million, after buying the condo for $17.2 million in late 2014. He eventually dropped the price to $30 million, and it was scooped up by Hafner nearly a year later.

It could be that Hafner is spending more time in Miami Beach, where he scooped up a 7,945-square-foot penthouse at the L’Atelier Residences for $21 million late last month. [Curbed]Kerry Barger
