Movie tycoon Bob Weinstein has sold his Manhattan duplex apartment for $20.5 million, $9 million less than he was initially hoping to score for the home, according to property records filed with the city Thursday.
Mr. Weinstein, 63, had first listed the 7,000-square-foot home in the Upper West Side’s tony Beresford building in September for $29.5 million before slashing the price to $26.5 million in January.

The final sale price of $20.5 million is just a pinch above the $20 million he paid for the property in 2004, records show.
The 14-room co-op on the 16th and 17th floors has five bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a staff room, wood-burning fireplaces and views of the park, according to the listing with Corcoran brokers Deborah Grubman, David M. Adler and Paul Albano. They did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The buyer is Pamela Schein Murphy, founder of lifestyle website the Select 7 and wife of restaurateur Marc Murphy, records show. They could not be reached for comment.
Mr. Weinstein has been offloading real estate left and right. Last month, he sold his Greenwich, Connecticut, mansion for $17 million, three years after listing it. In December, he sold an Upper West Side townhouse for $15 million, the same amount he paid for the 6,608-square-foot house in 2009, property records show.
Mr. Weinstein, who could not be reached for comment, co-founded The Weinstein Co. with his brother Harvey, who was terminated from the film company in October, following a deluge of sexual harassment, assault and rape allegations from women, including prominent actresses and former employees.
In June, Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty in New York to two counts of rape and one first-degree criminal sex act charge, and earlier this week was indicted on three additional sexual assault charges.
The Weinstein Co. declared bankruptcy in March. Lantern Entertainment has since agreed to buy the company.
The Real Deal first reported the sale.
