Tennis/pop star Yannick Noah sells CPS apartment for $9.2M


Yannick Noah, the former French tennis pro and father of NBA player Joakim Noah, just sold his apartment at 230 Central Park South for $9.2 million.

Regularly “voted France’s favorite famous person,” Yannick sold his home in an off-market deal to the entity 230CPS14, an LLC that appears to have connections to both hotelier and Republican donor Ian Reisner and Doug Wurth, CEO of Alternative Investments at JP Morgan. However, Reisner told LLNYC that he is not the buyer.

As The Real Deal previously reported, Reisner has been buying and flipping units in 230 Central Park South since the 1990s. 

Reisner, the co-owner of the city’s first gay hotel, came under fire by LGBT activists this year when he admitted to donating to Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz.

The unit 14ABC has three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and some pretty impressive park views. But it looks like Noah is spending more time in Paris these days. According to public records he is living in Paris’ 17th arrondissement.





In recent years Noah, who won the French Open in 1983, has reinvented himself as pop artist, selling millions of albums.
