The British Are Coming!
BUYER: Heather Mills
LOCATION: Perry Street, New York, NY
SIZE: 1,853 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
DESCRIPTION: ...The apartment comprises of 1853 sq ft with living-dining space running the full length of the building, with two terraces at each end. Floor to ceiling windows surround this stunning two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. Every detail has been designed by Richard Meier including temperature controlled window shades, heating system, multi-zoned A/C, entertainments and sounds system.
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Flush with a mountain of money from her fiercely brutal, all too public and dee-voonly dramatic dee-vorce from Beatle Paul McCartney, peg-legged British activist Heather Mills is getting on a jet plane and coming to America. Although no one knows how better to throw it down in front of a seething phalanx of paps, the much maligned Miz Mills is reportedly tuckered out tired of courting, er, Your Mama means being hounded by the British press and has reportedly contracted to purchase a $5,000,000 condominium in lower Manhattan.
Several weeks ago Miz ex-McCartney was spotted checking out pictures and plans for the undulating glass tower being built at One Jackson Square. However, it seems Missy Mills decided on something already built. According to the always well informed Braden Keil at the New York Post, Miz Mills is in the process of purchasing a ninth floor unit in one of the Richard Meier designed green glass towers that loom over the West Side Highway in the very far West Village.
The sleek, modern and minimally designed full floor unit encompasses 1,853 square feet and features a private elevator landing, two small balconies and long walls of floor to ceiling glass that provide awesome views of the mighty Hudson River as well as into the neighbors living rooms. The unit has been fitted and kitted with all the hi-tech gadgets a gurl could want and the living room stretches 40 feet across the front of the entire building. Both bedrooms are really more sleeping chambers than properly sized bedrooms and poor little Beatrice ,who will apparently be shuttled between her two warring parents, will only have an itty bitty bedroom that measures only a bit more than nine feet wide.
Property records (and the New York Post) reveal that the apartment is being sold by Joseph Castaldo, who heads up a textile company called The Style Council (and not the 1980s Brit band) who purchased the apartment back in September of 2002. Mister Meier's trio of architectural tour de forces, which have long been rumored and reported to suffer from leaks and other issues, have always attracted big name buyers including Vincent Gallo, Calvin Klein, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Nicole Kidman Cruise Urban's sister Antonia Hawley, and tech titan Bill Joy who recently karate chopped the asking price of his tremendous and tasty triplex from a bone rattling $40,000,000 to an eye popping $33,000,000.
