Our daily roundup of the most notable high-end residential transactions from the past 24 hours.
The Usual Suspects legend Gabriel Byrne scooped up one of the last remaining units at exquisitely designed and detailed 211 Elizabeth Street. The debonaire, salt-and-pepper haired actor paid $3,360,225 for the two-bedroom, two-bathroom Roman and Williams-designed bespoke beauty which features Calcatta gold marble in the bathrooms, a wood-burning fireplace (rare in a new buiding) and sleek herringbone parquet floors. The Irish actor has gained recent critical acclaim for his turn as psychotherapist, Dr. Paul Weston in the HBO drama, In Treatment. The originally Los Angeles-based show now shoots in New York which may explain the Miller’s Crossing star’s NoLita purchase. The apartment was listed by Stribling’s Sean Turner and Mary-Ellen Cashman. Filed: 4.30.10
