–It’s one-love for 230 Central Park South, where Yannick Noah, France’s highest-ranked tennis player turned pop star, has dropped $1.225 million. The seller is Heather Whyte. The apartment in the curvaceous co-op doesn’t appear to have been listed, but the price is moderate for the building, where a top-floor unit is asking nearly $10 million. With his flying dreadlocks and pair of lucrative careers, Mr. Noah sure has conservative tastes in real estate.
–Chew on this one! Wrigley’s heir Paxson Offield has sold his place at 27 West 67th Street for $1.7 million. The buyer is Todd Phillips, who we can only hope is one-and-the-same as the dreamy director of The Hangover, which would make this a double-bubble of a real estate trade. The former artists lofts, where Milton Glaser once lived, seems the perfect spot for an auteur gone Hollywood.
–Susan and Benjamin J. Winter, of his family’s 100-plus-year-old real estate investment firm, have sold their two-bedroom co-op to Hyunja and Jeffrey Kenner, most recently the founder of his own investment firm, Kenner & Company. But don’t feel too sorry for the real estate titan and his wife, given that they’re already warm at home on Park Avenue. When said financiers are swapping a $7.6 million apartment in J.E.R. Carpenter’s coveted 920 Fifth Avenue with a private foyer, sunlit living room and classic, yet contemporary renovation, The Observer concedes there’s something to be thankful for this holiday.
