Soho penthouse hits the market asking $60M. Brokers doubt it gets even half that
Corcoran and CORE are jointly marketing the pad at 419 Broome
Distressed debt tycoon David Matlin is about to list his Soho pad, and he wants a king’s ransom for it.
Matlin and his wife Lisa plan to list their full-floor penthouse at 419 Broome Street for $60 million, the New York Post reported.
There are doubts that the couple will get a figure close to that lofty sum.
“It is a beautifully done apartment, but it is not worth more than $30 million,” a broker told The Post. In 2012, the penthouse hit the market for $25.5 million but was pulled off the market.
The most expensive apartment to ever close downtown was private equity billionaire Robert Smith’s $59 million purchase at the Getty last month.
Matlin and his wife interviewed multiple brokers before picking a co-exclusive with Corcoran and CORE, but the details are still being hashed out, the report said.
The 7,634-square-foot penthouse has six terraces and a great room with 24-foot ceilings, according to an old listing. It’s above the unit where actor Heath Ledger died of an accidental drug overdose 10 years ago. The four-unit Broome St. building was bought by the property’s lender in a foreclosure auction for $15 million in 2009.[NYP] — Meenal Vamburkar
