Back in May, we wrote about fashion designer Alexander Wang’s 2,550-square-foot loft hitting the market. Yesterday, the spread at 39 Worth Street went into contract for $3.5 million just a touch less than its original $3.75 million asking price.
It’s too early to see who the new owner of the one-bedroom co-op is, but we hope their taste in interior design is as good as Wang’s.
According to the listing the open-plan living space is, “decoratively separated” into a large living room, dining room and den area, while the kitchen has stainless steel cabinetry with white marble counters and a built-in island. And there’s a dressing room, an obvious must-have for any fashionista. The home also has ebony stained wood floors and a whole lot of black furniture – classic Wang.
In total the spread spent just 75 days on the market. According to Douglas Elliman, last quarter the average time on the market for condos and co-ops was 89 days. Which begs the question – do celebrity homes sell faster?
Judging by some recent transactions – quite possibly.
Adam Levine’s Soho loft sold in June after 68 days on the market. Parker Posey’s co-op went into contract in July after 52 days on the market. And in June, Alan Cumming’s East Village pad was snapped up after just 34 days.
