Looks like 52E4 — the 15 stories of condo on the Bowery and East Fourth Street — is losing a celebrity tenant.
According to Jennifer Gould Keil at the the Post today, nine-time Grammy Award-winner John Legend's two-bedroom condo is on the market for $2.95 million. (He paid $1.9 million for the place in 2009.) We didn't see the listing posted just yet...
The Post is quick to note that he "still loves the apartment but also loves looking at real estate and could be ready to upgrade."
What's not to love about the surrounding area with the 7-Eleven coming soon to the building's retail space on the Bowery and that godawful-looking hotel in the works for the former Salvation Army residence on the corner of East Third Street?
Anyway, you may remember seeing Legend's apartment via Esquire and the photo shoot with his girlfriend, Chrissy Teigen, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model.
Can't wait for the Open House!
Anybody who has to call himself Legend pretty much isn't one...
The upper Bowery has quickly turned into a commercial and architectual shit-show. And council member Chin is doing her best to replicate these vacant high-rises on the lower parts. That lady needs to be recalled before the Bowery reaches the total collapse that these heavy weights are leading it to.
I know many of u will roll ur eyes but when i was growing up on mulberry and canal in the 70s my brother 12 year old brother was stabbed in the neck with a syringe in front of where that "God awful" hotel now resides. Oh the good ole days.
