— Architect Jill Brunstad, who’s designed retail spaces for Dolce & Gabbana and Eileen Fisher, has sold her penthouse at 145 East 84th Street for $2.1 million. Unsurprisingly, given its pedigree, the penthouse enjoys a fully landscaped wraparound terrace and one of the Upper East Side’s more tasteful decorating jobs, which deserves full credit for pulling off electric blue carpeting.
— Proving that isolation really isn’t a selling point for city dwellers, another apartment at Chelsea Enclave, on the grounds of the theological seminary, has sold for a steeply discounted $5.3 million, or a nearly 12 percent chop. Prices at 177 Ninth Avenue have been cut dramatically in the last six months, by as much as 25.9 percent in the case of another fourth-floor unit. This latest sale, to a buyer listed on the deed under an LLC, suggests they’re not coming back up any time soon.
