Five million dollars will get you 4,772 square feet in Soho, but not in the best of shape it appears.

Model Heidi Klum paid that much for a fixer-upper of a loft at 515 Broadway, the New York Post reported. The raw space sits at the top of a turn-of-the-century Queen Anne building and offers views of both the World Trade Center and the distinctive, Jenga-like 56 Leonard Street. And like so many other Soho lofts now owned by the rich and famous, the home was formerly occupied by an artist

In 2015, Klum appeared in the tabloids for scouting out much more gratuitous real estate, after having a look at Tavern Island, an $11 million private oasis on the Connecticut coast. She also checked out the 158 Mercer Street penthouse of Jon Bon Jovi, which eventually sold for $34 million. [NYP] — Will Parker
