Moby had trouble selling the unit, which was originally listed in 2007. The coop board rejected a buyer in January who offered close to the asking price of $7.5 million, and it was returned to the market.

The singer bought the apartment in the south tower of the 28-story building, constructed in 1931, for $4.5 million in 2005.
