New York City’s residential real estate world last week saw the sale of a Trump Tower condominium owned by the widow of Tamir Sapir and the penthouse at 172 Madison Avenue hit the market asking a whopping $98 million. These are some other attention-grabbing deals made public last week.

Source: A TRD analysis of public records filed with the New York City Department of Finance and news sources from June 10 to 14.

1.) The mystery owner of two penthouses at 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca has sold the second — and larger — of his or her luxury pads for $25 million. The buyer of penthouse 53, which was listed at first for $35 million and measures 6,400 square feet, also was anonymous. The seller, South Shore Investments LLC, had closed on the penthouse for about $29 million in 2017. The buyer sold the 54th-floor penthouse to a different anonymous buyer for $19.6 million earlier this year, after shelling out about $24 million for that apartment. Compass had the listing for the most recent sale, which comes out to roughly $3,900 per square foot.

2.) Remember that massive townhouse at 15 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights that recently closed for just under $9 million? It looks like the buyers of the 6,200-square-foot home are Joseph and Giovanna Gray Lockhart. Joe Lockhart was once press secretary to former President Bill Clinton and is now a podcast host and CNN analyst, and Giovanna Lockhart is an executive at the Wing, the women-focused co-working company. The sellers were Damian and Britt Zunino, who run the design firm Studio DB and who had acquired the home through an LLC in 2014 for about $4.8 million and renovated it. NestSeekers International’s Ryan Serhant and Bradley Mohr had the listing for the 15-room, 25-foot-wide mansion, which first went on the market in 2016 for $14.15 million. In a tweet, Serhant noted that the pair had five deals on the home that fell through.

3.) Andrew Rosen, the former CEO of contemporary clothing label Theory Inc., sold his full-floor penthouse at the Rudin Family’s 130 West 12th Street for $18.5 million (or about $4,800 per square foot), according to WWD. The buyer was financier Justin Korsant, the outlet reported. Rosen picked up the two-bedroom Greenwich Village apartment, which spans 3,875 square feet, five years ago for $13 million, then put it on the market last year for $21.5 million. Compass had the listing.
