Janklows’ Greenwich Village Townhouse Sells for $15.35 M.

According to city records filed Monday morning, Lucas Janklow and soon-to-be ex-wife, Julie, shed their Greenwich Village townhouse for $15.35 million. The New York Post‘s Jennifer Gould Kiel broke news of the closing earlier this month but at that point only the asking price was known, $17.9 million. The five-bedroom townhouse at 16 West 12th Street is one of several architectural gems on the coveted downtown block.

Lucas Janklow, the curly-haired adonis who put the cool back in literary agent, and his ex-wife, restauranteur Julie Janklow (the deed listed her by her maiden name, Julie Daniels) bought the five-floor townhouse for $4.5 milion in 2004, and proceeded to do an extensive renovation.

Julie Daniels Janklow is a former musician who owns the hip Rumpelmeyer’s-like restaurant, Sweetiepie, near their former Greenwich Village home. Lucas Janklow is a literary agent at the superlative boutique agency Janklow & Nesbit (“Janklow” refers to Lucas’ father Mortimer) which counts Anderson Cooper, as well as other literary notables, as a client.

With the handsome renovation upping the value ante, developer Ara Hovnanian and artist wife, Rachel, scooped up the townhouse for $10.85 million more than the Janklows paid six years ago.
