15CPW ALERT! Spanx You Very Much! Travel Mogul Flips for $8.5 M.

15cpw 10 15CPW ALERT! Spanx You Very Much! Travel Mogul Flips for $8.5 M. Back in January, we reported that the owner of the upscale travel agency Smart Flyer had bought a $4.86 million condo at 15 Central Park West. Less than two months later, Spanx CEO Sara Blakely and former rapper and Marquis Jet founder Jessie Itzler (a.k.a. 1991 one-hit-wonder Jesse Jaymes), have paid Mr. Holtz $8.5 million for the 14th-floor condo, city records show. After turning a nearly $4 million profit, Mr. Holtz must only be thinking "Spank!"

Mr. Holtz has a history of flipping condos at high-profile developments. He signed the contract for Unit 14K in August 2005, just a few months after he sold his 66th-floor, three-bedroom condo in yet another star-studded building, the Park Imperial, to P. Diddy for almost $4 million.

Mr. Holtz had lived in the Park Imperial for only two years when he decided to move to a second-floor glass-enclosed apartment at the Richard Meier-designed Perry Street towers. Though his real estate portfolio is a little lighter these days now that he’s unloaded his property at 15 Central Park West, Mr. Holtz still has three condos at Perry Street.

The race to chair the Democratic National Committee (DNC) features front-runners Tom Perez, a Hispanic-American and former secretary of labor under Barack Obama who is the establishment pick, and Keith Ellison, a black Muslim congressman from the party's progressive wing who has left open the prospect of pushing to impeach Trump. / AFP / Mandel NGAN AND Brendan SMIALOWSKI        (Photo credit should read MANDEL NGAN,BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/Getty Images)
