Just two months after Justin Timberlake said “Bye Bye Bye,” to his penthouse apartment at 443 Greenwich Street, the unit is back on the market.

This time, unit PHG is asking $35 million. Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel sold the penthouse in January for $29 million. The couple picked up the home for $20.2 million in March 2017.

The buyer’s — and now seller’s — identity was shielded behind Menemshovitz NY Realty, a corporation registered in Delaware. The shell company has popped up in property records recently as the seller of an 8,000-square-foot penthouse at 421 Broome Street, which flipped in November for $49 million in an off-market deal.

An entity connected to the buyer also spent $33 million on a 6,400-square-foot townhouse and three-bedroom apartment at 17 Jane Street in the West Village.

Tal Alexander of Douglas Elliman has the listing and represented the buyer in acquiring the unit two months ago. Alexander declined to comment.
