The Whitman building at 21 East 26th Street has only four high-end units
J. Lo bought the sprawling 6,500-square, two-story penthouse for $22 million earlier this month. The penthouse – for which she paid more than $3,300 per square foot – was originally listed for $25 million. The duplex was the last unit to be sold at The Whitman. Elliman’s Fredrik Eklund brokered the deal on J. Lo’s behalf, but declined to comment. The penthouse includes two staircases, two living rooms, two washer-dryer units as well as 3,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space divided over two levels.
The former First Daughter and her husband bought the 4,967-square-foot unit for $9.25 million in July 2013. The couple paid $1,862 per square foot for their fourth-floor residence.
BlueCrest Capital’s Silvetz and his model-wife Wilda Deon Bray bought the third-floor, 5,000-square-foot unit in August 2013 for $10 million, which equates to just over $2,000 per square foot.
The race car driver bought the second floor unit in the building in August of 2013 for $10 million – the same price as Silvetz paid. The unit, like the other full-floor units in the building, comes with four bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms as well as a special media room at the back of the apartment.
