Emmy-winning writer and producer David Chase has listed his two adjacent – but not combined – apartments at West Chelsea’s London Terrace for $16.5 million. The larger of the two units is the penthouse, which was once the home of the late author and activist Susan Sontag. It totals roughly 2,700 square feet, and was purchased by Chase, the creator of “The Sopranos,” in early 2013 for $9.65 million.
