Celebrity Real Estate: Jonah Hill and Mickey Drexler
By Laura Vecsey
Jonah Hill: The Wolf of Bleecker Street
Last fall, Jonah Hill went into accelerated “sell” mode on his SoHo apartment, dropping the price from $3.75 million all the way down to $3 million to close the deal. Now we know why. It turns out that the actor/comedian had found a way better Big Apple crash pad.
Hill’s new $9.2 million residence is a 3,200-square-foot loft in the newly remodeled Greenwich Village area condo building call The Schumacher. A former printing press, the building is classic old New York, though now the residences are completely modern and decked out in top-notch finishes and amenities. Hill’s unit sports 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and views overlooking an arty inner courtyard. For a non-Wolf in New York, living this large is a pretty sure sign of success.
Hill made a bit of a profit with his last real estate endeavor. He previously owned a Hollywood Hills home which he sold in 2015 for $3.65 million – twice what he paid in 2010.
Housing ‘Crew’ Cut for Fashion House Kingpin
J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler is no stranger to big deals and amazing houses. He’s owned and tried to sell at least two others in Manhattan and the Hamptons in the past few years as his clothing company weathers headwinds. Now Drexler is looking for a sale of $29.995 million on his pretty amazing art deco, steampunk home in Tribeca.
The 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom loft building spans a pretty surreal 9,000 square feet over five floors – all of it decked out in the most elaborate finishes and decor that puts the residence in a class by itself. The building was a former coffee roasting plant, but you could never tell given this fashionable makeover.
