–CocaCola’s one-time chief spinmeister has bought a $1.125 million co-op at 1010 Third Avenue on 61st Street. Charles Holleran, who has also worked for Ford, and wife, Kathryn Holleran, a managing director at AIG, have purchased the unlisted spread from Jonathan Popper, of Morgan Stanley, and his wife, Karla Popper, a venture capitalist.
–Another Plaza unit has gone for 40 percent off. Unit 1513 just sold for $5.4 million, after it was initially listed for $8.85 million by Stribling in 2009. It was relisted by Corcoran for $5.8 million and the eventual buyer is an LLC. That works out to about $2,363 a square foot, so for now it looks like 15 CPW will hold onto its crown.
–Andrew Pipa, of none other than Morgan Stanley, and wife, Terrie Pipa, an abstract artist, have sold their $6 million penthouse at 22 Mercer Street. The address may not have the starchitect status of neighboring 40 Mercer, but this unit nonetheless features “Perfection on every level!,” according to the Brown Harris Stevens listing. There are, in fact, three floors, not to mention several terraces. The buyer is Sacha Levy, who also appears to be a creative-type who launched the travelzine Iagora in the late `90s at the age of 25. We suspect that’s not where he got the big bucks.
–The unitard-clad artistic jetset is apparently rolling in it these days. Stylist Vanessa Chow has bought a $3.9 million townhouse in Chelsea. According to the listing, the four-story federal-style home has so much outdoor space there’s room for a 4,000-square-foot extension to the house. The previous owner was psychiatrist Joshua Algaze.
–Calyon Securities VP Philip Utsch has bought a $4.3 million condo in the Beekman at 400 East 51st Street. The seller is the estate of Elliot Niesenbaum. The unit was originally listed by Brown Harris Stevens for $5.45 million last January, and was re-listed by Sotheby’s for a mere $4.6 million.
