When Celebrities Move To Town!

SoHo is known publicly for fashion, models, celebrities and expensive real-estate.  Sometimes all four of these merge into one when a celebrity buys or sells an apartment.  I learned two weeks ago that Adam Levine, lead singer of Maroon 5, and his wife, Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo purchased a $4.5M loft at 112 Greene Street in SoHo.  The co-op is 2,700 square feet and only one real bedroom! (two of the bedrooms are interior).  After speaking to an insider, the unit is currently undergoing a renovation to open up the floorplan.

SoHo is a popular neighborhood for celebrities to live in because with stores opening at 10am and closing at 7pm, they can walk around in the morning and evenings unnoticed.  A tip to friends:  the highest chance to see a celebrity is walking around SoHo between 7-9 am and 7-9 pm.  Additionally, the cobblestone streets are a perfect deterrent for taxis who try to avoid side streets like Mercer, Greene, and Crosby for fear of a flat tire – generally its less crowded on those streets as well.

There are several other celebrity real estate transactions in the news:
