The owner of Jon Bon Jovi’s former Soho apartment apparently fell “In and Out of Love” with the six-bedroom SoHo penthouse in less than two years.
Investor Gerhard Andlinger, 86, who founded private equity firm Andlinger & Company, is selling the stunning unit at the top of the Mercer Street building for $38 million. Mr. Andlinger bought the unit from Mr. Bon Jovi in mid-2015 through JAD 2015 Investments LLC for $34 million, according to property records.
Before Mr. Andlinger, the “Livin’ on a Prayer” singer called the penthouse home for eight years, buying the apartment for $24 million in 2007, according to property records. Mr. Bon Jovi still keeps a home in nearby Red Bank, New Jersey, a grand, waterfront mansion, property records show.
Other notable owners in the Manhattan building, past and present, include media maven Ariana Huffington and producer Harvey Weinstein, according to property records.
The duplex unit is on the top two floors of the the former New Museum of Contemporary Art, which was converted into a condominium tower in the late 1990s. From the elevator, the first level opens up into an elegant foyer that leads to a great room with a fireplace. The first level encompasses the master suite and two additional bedrooms and staff quarters. The second level has a window-lined living room, a dining room and second kitchen suitable for entertaining, according to the listing with Graham Uffelman of Brown Harris Stevens.
“This is one of the highest points in SoHo, it has amazing views,” Mr. Uffelman said.
The seller is looking to downsize from the penthouse, which has around 7,500 square feet of interior space and another 3,000 square feet of outdoor terraces, Mr. Uffelman added.
Mr. Andlinger could not immediately be reached for comment.
