With the big news this week circulating in the media that the recently married couple of Ivanka Trump, yes that Trump, and her Husband Jared Kushner (owner of the New York Observer and son of New Jersey real estate mogul Charles Kushner) are expecting their first child, I guess they decided they will need more space and recently listed Mr. Kushner's former bachelor pad for sale. Lying in Greenwich Village in the NYC, this 2,042 sq. ft loft in Astor Place is "one of the most sought after converted pre-war boutique loft building downtown Manhattan," according to Street Easy . With two bedrooms, two and a half baths, soaring ceilings, modern finishes, walls of glass and a ton of natural light in a boutique building, what is not to love? According to Curbed NY, Mr. Kushner purchased the property in the Spring of 2009 for $3,225,000. After doing some renovations, the property is now listed for $4,100,000. It will be interesting to see the type of space they land in next. I hear Trump Tower is nice.
I have said it before and will say it again, although there are more popping up, I sure wish there were more character loft buildings like this in prime locations in Los Angeles. That said, I guess we have houses with grassy yards, pools, and stunning views for this kind of money right.
