Power couple Stacey Bendet Eisner and Eric Eisner purchased two adjacent apartments in The Dakota, an iconic Manhattan building on 72nd Street across from the Central Park, according to initial filings with the City Registry Monday.
Ms. Eisner, 39, chief executive and creative director of clothing company Alice + Olivia, and her husband Eric, an entertainment and media mogul and son of former Walt Disney Company CEO Michael Eisner, closed the deals last week.
It’s not clear how much the couple paid for the two apartments, though the listing agent for one of the residences said that unit was sold for $9.475 million. The two apartments asked for a combined $16.995 million, per listing site StreetEasy.
The one asking $10 million was reportedly the onetime home of screen legend Judy Garland. It wasn’t clear when she bought it or how much she paid for it.
The three-bedroom residence was last owned by the late Jacqueline Bikoff, a pianist, ballerina and Studio 54 fixture. She bought it in 2010 for $13 million, property records show. Bikoff’s daughter, designer Sasha Bikoff, redesigned the interior of the 4,700-square-foot home.
“The beautifully finished apartment was a spectacular, quintessential Dakota apartment. It has four exposures, the original molding, doors, eight fireplaces with original mantels,” said Katherine Gauthier, listing agent of Douglas Elliman.
She declined to confirm the identity of buyers.
The neighboring $6.995-million, 2,000-square-foot unit has five rooms, featuring four wood-burning fireplaces and many other pre-war details. The seller of the smaller apartment, which was sold in an off-market deal but offered as a combination opportunity with the other one, was Grammy award-winning singer Roberta Flack, who could not immediately be reached for comment.
The Eisners didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment sent to their respective companies.
The Dakota, a Henry J. Hardenbergh-designed building, features ornate finials and Gothic details on its facade, a landscaped exterior and interior courtyard, and white-gloved doorman service. Its celebrity residents have included Yoko Ono, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and the late Lauren Bacall.
