Mario Testino Follows Ricky Martin

BUYER: Mario Testino
LOCATION: 40 Bond Street, New York, NY
PRICE: close to $6,300,000 asking price
SIZE: 2,637 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: According to the Wall Street Journal, famous fashion snapper Mario Testino has signed a contract to purchase one of the Herzog & de Meuron designed condominiums at 40 Bond, a swanky and expensive Ian Schager building located in New York's NoHo neighborhood.

The children may remember that some time back Your Mama discussed this building after learning that Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin signed a contract to purchase a condo in the building.

According to the WSJ, Mister Testino, who hails from Peru, and Mister Martin, whom we like to call Señor Cha Cha, will own similar apartments, each with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

Your Mama has to wonder though, whose apartment is on top?

Now here's an example of modern architecture and decor I really, really like. If the rest of the apartment is like that, I want it.

The building is beautiful - very interesting compared to the usual glass boxes we repeatedly see in manhattan ...

oh that is beautiful. I must have been half asleep at the switch yesterday because I missed the 40 Bond link. Simply stunning.
