UPDATED, Dec. 11, 2:20 p.m.: Bob Weinstein, brother to Harvey and the co-founder of Weinstein Company and Miramax, has closed on the sale of his Upper West Side townhouse for $15 million, according to property records filed with the city Monday.

The five-story property, at 39 West 70th Street, is a 6,608-square-foot home with five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms. It has a roof deck, five fireplaces, an elevator, two balconies and a home gym with a basketball court.

Weinstein bought the property with his ex-wife Annie Clayton for $15 million in 2009, records show. The home was listed for $19 million in February.

The buyer is Yonpeng Wang, who controls “Central Park West Residency LLC.” Corcoran’s Deborah Grubman, David Adler and Paul Albano handled the listing. The deal closed on December 1.

The Weinsteins are credited for producing critically-acclaimed films such as “Pulp Fiction” and “The King’s Speech.” The sale comes as the pair deal with the fallout from several sexual-harassment accusations. A female show-runner from the Spike TV series “The Mist” accused Bob Weinstein of repeatedly making romantic overtures and asking her out to dinner, according to a report from Variety. Weinstein has denied the allegations. He remains part of the three-member board of the Weinstein Companies.

Harvey Weinstein, meanwhile, has been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior by over 30 women. The allegations include two rape accusations. The scandal led to Weinstein’s ouster from the board of the Weinstein Companies. It also realigned what is considered acceptable behavior in the workplace, sparking a series of firings and resignations from prominent figures such as Al Franken, Matt Lauer and Kevin Spacey.
