Bronfman Finishes 1040 Fifth Deal for $21 M.

edgarbronfmangetty Bronfman Finishes 1040 Fifth Deal for $21 M.Edgar Bronfman Jr. has sold his 11-room duplex at 1040 Fifth Avenue for $21 million.

My colleague Max Abelson reported in June that the Warner Music chairman and liquor heir had gone to contract for between $20 million and $21 million. That was below the asking price of $24 million but above the price he paid for it in January–$19.5 million.

Mr. Bronfman’s generally good at these things. From The Observer this past week:

In under 12 months, the [Bronfmans have] now been involved in no less than six of New York City’s biggest sales: Last October, they sold their 31-foot-wide townhouse on East 64th Street to the oil magnate Len Blavatnik. The couple had paid $4.375 million for the house in 1994.

Nine days later, they paid $18.75 million for a 10-room duplex in the limestone Carhart Mansion on East 95th Street. This month, they reportedly sold the unfinished 7,140-square-foot place, most recently asking $21.75 million, to the Jimmy Choo cofounder Tamara Mellon.
