From Luxury Listings NYC: Is there no end to Johnny Depp’s purge of his assets? First, the movie star listed a French village he casually owns for $55 million (almost twice its original asking price of $26 million); then he shed a number of his favorite Basquiat paintings; and now, the Wall Street Journal reports that he has listed five adjacent penthouses in the Eastern Columbia Building for $12.8 million.
The properties, which sit atop the extremely funky Eastern Columbia Building, have a rather unusual setup. Depp purchased all of them for $7.2 million in 2007, but never combined them, instead using them “like rooms in a home” because he didn’t want to disrupt the “integrity” of the spaces, the listing agent told the Journal. Four of the units are two-bedrooms and one is a one-bedroom (three of the units are connected through doorways). In total, they span 11,500 square feet, and can be purchased as individual apartments (the listing agent declined to give a price for each). [More]
