In Deed! Wall Street Writer Buys at 141 Fifth, Limbaugh's Penthouse Hits City Records

rush limbaugh library In Deed! Wall Street Writer Buys at 141 Fifth, Limbaugh's Penthouse Hits City Records— Screenwriter Allan Loeb penned the soon-to-be released Michael Douglas sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and it looks like he’s taking his own advice, spending those insomniac bucks on a luxe unit at the newly renovated 141 Fifth Avenue. The former bank building, whose copper-topped cupola penthouse lingers on the market for $12 million, has welcomed other well-known residents in recent months, such as actress Melissa George, Burger King former CEO Bradley Blum, and Halston honcho Bonnie Takhar. Mr. Loeb also wrote the end-of-summer Jennifer Aniston/Jason Bateman bust, The Switch, which was originally titled The Baster–let’s hope that wasn’t Mr. Loeb’s suggestion.

— In other news, city records confirm last week’s Wall Street Journal reports that Rush Limbaugh‘s tastefully muraled penthouse at 1049 Fifth Avenue has sold for $11.75 million (a steep shave off its original $13.95 million asking price) to an LLC-shielded, Florida-based buyer.
