Only to re-emerge, back on the market, at the very end of November. Whether or not the rebuffed or regretful potential buyer was Mr. Macklowe, who helms William Macklowe Company, remains a mystery. Ms. Kurtin gave The Observer a “no comment” when we reached her on the phone.

The Post reports that Mr. Macklowe signed an under-ask contract for a four-bedroom, 5.5-bath co-op apartment at 950 Fifth Avenue.
