Jack Donaghy is known for his business acumen, from his dedication to Six Sigma to his intimate knowledge of even the smallest subsidiaries of the Sheinhardt Wig Company empire. Alec Baldwin, it appears, knows his way around the negotiating table, as well. The actor scooped up a place at The Devonshire at the end of the summer, but city records show he saved almost a million on the property. Although initial reports claimed he bought the place for $12.5 million, the deed reveals he paid just $11.7 million for the new pad.

The actor, who recently vacated his 3,000-square-foot place at 300 Central Park West, has upgraded with his most recent purchase. Floor plans show that the actor’s new duplex spans a full 4,137 square feet, with an additional 470-square-feet on the terrace.

The place is almost as big as 30 Rock itself. The lower level features three bedrooms with three accompanying baths. A breakfast room flanks the open kitchen, which leads into a 392-suare-foot living room. A gargantuan master suite encompasses an entire wing and includes four walk-in-closets, a dressing room and an adjacent study.

We wonder what Mr. Baldwin’s new friends at Zuccotti park would say about his new bedroom! According to the detailed floor plan, the master bath features a “custom vanity with Calcatta vision marble tops,” and a double sink. So there will be enough room for the toothbrush of Mr. Baldwin’s new girlfriend, yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas.

Ms. Thomas will have room aplenty to practice her child’s pose on the duplex’s upper level. Consisting of a 631-square foot great room, a bathroom and two terraces, the space is as flexible as Ms. Thomas herself.

Hey Occupy Wall Street! Party at Alec’s place! At least hit him up for a hot shower—he can’t possibly use all four and a half bathrooms himself!
