ANOTHER FREAKING UPDATE: Turns out it IS Alexis moving into the collection of apartments that reportedly have been combined into one humongo unit.
In late February, Your Mama and every other real estate column and blog reported that Alexis Stewart, daughter of Big Miss Martha Stewart, purchased three floors and $35,000,000 of real estate at 165 Charles Street, one of the green glass Richard Meier towers on the Hudson River in the West Village.
Well, it did sound strange that radio hostess Alexis would have the awesome amount of cash required to buy up all that square footage. And today Braden Keil at the NY Post explains why. Turns out, these apartments were not purchased by Alexis, but were bought by none other than Big Miss Martha herself.
This is not the first time the homemaking honcho has purchased in the Meier towers. Big Miss Martha purchased the duplex penthouse at 173 Perry Street for $6,100,000 but sold it in 2004 before ever moving in. Guess she's changed her mind about living downtown.
Thanks to Braden for clearing all that up.
