From The Real Deal: Jon Stewart’s former Tribeca penthouse is being shopped around as a whisper listing for $20 million, The Real Deal has learned.

The penthouse at 161 Hudson Street last sold for $17.5 million in 2014 to Parag Pande, a former portfolio manager at the Blackstone Group. Compass’ Leonard Steinberg has been quietly shopping the property to prospective buyers but has not listed it publicly.

The sprawling duplex is on the eighth and ninth floors of the 24-unit prewar boutique building. Actor Jeremy Piven and Mets catcher Mike Piazza also own homes there.

Stewart, who hosted “The Daily Show,” paid $5.8 million for the pad in 2005. [more]
