Conan O'Brien is Majectic no more. The talk show host has sold his large duplex apartment at the Majestic co-op on Central Park West. The Wall Street Journal's Josh Barbanel says that the deal came in at close to the $29.5 million asking price. If the unnamed buyer closes in that price range it would be the second-highest sale of the year so far in Manhattan and would be the most expensive sale at the Majestic. The unit in the twin-towered building was created by combining two apartments on the 17th and 18th floors. There are a total of seven bedrooms, three terraces and two libraries. John Burger, a broker at Brown Harris Stevens had the listing. O'Brien moved to Los Angeles when he took over "Tonight Show" on NBC. In 2008, O'Brien and his wife Liza paid $10.75 million for a six-bedroom home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. Looks like O'Brien and his family will be staying in Los Angeles for a while, especially because he has a new gig as a late night host for TBS.
Conan O'Brien, is finally, sadly out at NBC (and with a sweet $45 million kiss off to boot) but that doesn't mean he is returning to New York City to live. In fact the New York Post reports that O'Brien's massive Central Park West penthouse duplex at the Majestic is "quietly being shopped around" for a heavy price tag of $35 million (alas no listing yet). The prime co-op unit is composed of two units, an 18th-floor penthouse that O'Brien bought in 2007 for around $10 million plus an already combined unit residence on the 17th floor. The south-facing home has three terraces and views of Central Park West. The twin towered Art Deco styled Majestic has 238 apartments. It was once home to some of the former heads of the Luciano crime family (later called the Genovese crime family) including Meyer Lansky, Lucky Luciano and Frank Costello. The Real Estalker reminds us that in early 2008, O'Brien and his wife Liza paid $10.75 million for a six-bedroom home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles, could he be staying in Los Angeles to take the helm at another late night show? Stay tuned.
