As he prepares to move downtown, Larry Silverstein has listed his longtime home in Midtown for $13.9M.
The developer plans to move into a penthouse at 30 Park Place, a condominium built by his firm Silverstein Properties, the Wall Street Journal reported. Silverstein and his wife Klara have lived at 500 Park Avenue for more than 33 years. The full-floor, five-bedroom condo unit has views of Central Park, a paneled library and a dining room. There’s only one other unit on the market at 500 Park Avenue — a two-bedroom pad listed at $6 million.
The couple’s new digs are just under four minutes to Silverstein’s office at 7 World Trade Center. Their daughter, Lisa Silverstein, and her family are also moving into the building on a lower floor. Silverstein joked that his 12-year-old grandson is planning to show him how to skateboard to the office.
“We’re in active discussions about it,” he said. [WSJ] — Kathryn Brenzel
