The townhouse has been the subject of lawsuits since her death and a former employee, Azadeh Azari, was awarded a $2.7 million judgment against the corporation that owns the townhouse, Wansdown Properties Corp., to cover her pension.
Last year, the home was put into bankruptcy court, when it first received a $10.3 million offer. That offer, however, fell through, sources tell Gimme Shelter. The townhouse was then put back on the market for $11.45 million and is now in contract, listing broker Charlie Attias of Compass — who shares the listing with Greg Corbin of Rosewood Realty — tells Gimme Shelter. “We were able to find a buyer above our asking price. It’s a great scenario. Buyers are back and we are doing deals,” Attias says.
Monday’s Olshan Report also noted that the dollar volume of the top four sales for the first week in June totaled $46.89 million — the highest weekly total in 11 weeks.
The most expensive transaction, Olshan notes, was a penthouse duplex at 415 Greenwich St., which was most recently on the market for $18.9 million. In another hopeful sign for the post-coronavirus property market, the buyers started the negotiations less than a month ago, Davis told the Olshan Report, and only saw the apartment after they agreed on a price.
The 415 Greenwich St. seller was repped by Corcoran’s Danny Davis; the buyers were repped by Joshua Wesoky of Compass.
