A posh apartment once reportedly rented by the pop singer Ariana Grande and her former boyfriend, “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson, has been snapped up for $13.5 million.
The price includes two parking spaces worth $700,000 each—well beyond the price of a house in most areas of the country.
Phillip Salem of Compass brought the buyer. The listing agent, Steve Gold with Corcoran, represented the seller.
“This residence is truly special, because it is located in prolific designer Dame Zaha Hadid’s first residential building in New York City, situated along the High Line, in the city’s most coveted neighborhood,” Salem says.
“When it comes to the type of homes celebrities and stars want, it certainly isn’t cookie-cutter or basic,” he adds. “This building is anything but that. The building’s distinct architecture and design, both inside and out, differentiates this condo from anything out there on the market. From high-end finishes to the curvy lacquer walls—every custom detail was brought to life to showcase the profound artistry of Ms. Hadid, and that has made this property into one of the most exclusive addresses in the world.”
On and off the market since 2015 with an unwavering $16 million price tag, the eye-catching apartment was rumored to have been rented by the pop star and the actor in 2018, during their brief relationship.
The couple’s former love nest included five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, on 4,023 square feet of interior space. There’s also a step-out, setback terrace, with views of the Empire State Building.
A loftlike living area features a large great room with views of the High Line from the private balcony, as well as a separate dining room or family area adjacent to the Boffi kitchen designed by Hadid.
The kitchen has a sculptural island with beveled marble, and sleek cabinets with Gaggenau appliances, double dishwashers, double refrigerators, a steam oven, and wine fridge.
Designed with a four-bedroom layout, with a fifth bedroom possible, and four en suite bathrooms, the master bedroom includes a giant dressing room. The unit also comes with a separate service entrance and utility room.
Designer details include such features as 10-foot-wide motorized windows, distinctive curved glass, 10-foot-high ceilings, and custom lacquered wall paneling.
Located directly over the High Line in West Chelsea, the building is only moments from Hudson River Park, and from the mix of cultural, shopping, dining, and parks at Hudson Yards.
The boutique property with 39 units boasts amenities that cater to a lifestyle in need of luxury and privacy, including a drive-in, automated garage, a skylit, 75-foot swimming pool, a fitness center, spa, and the city’s first private Imax theater.
Residents are pampered with a full-time concierge, door attendants, a live-in super, and hand-delivered mail.
In addition to Grande, the property has attracted other celeb residents including, at one point, Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, who had also been renting there in 2018, before purchasing a $65.7 million penthouse on Central Park. The investor Wesley Edens, co-owner of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks, scored a $20M penthouse in the Hadid building in 2020.
Grande has since moved on from the apartment, and her relationship at the time. Now married to real estate agent Dalton Gomez, the 28-year-old superstar has amassed an impressive property portfolio.
On the West Coast, the “Positions” singer picked up a contemporary mansion in the Hollywood Hills, as well as a $9 million tear-down, also in Los Angeles.
Grande also owns a $6.7 million Montecito estate that she purchased from the serial home flipper Ellen DeGeneres.
In addition to owning an enviable number of homes, Grande is a two-time Grammy winner, and a chart-topping, record-breaking artist who has cash to lay out on upscale abodes. In 2020, she raked in $72 million.
