Lower Fifth may soon be turning into Fashion Row. Valentino and his longtime partner Giancarlo Giammetti were spotted checking out the $12 million cupola penthouse at 141 Fifth Ave. The 3,200-square-foot, three-level condo features two bedrooms (including a master suite at
the very top), 3½ bathrooms and a custom chef’s kitchen, along with 10½-foot ceilings, oversized windows and several private terraces.

They’d be joining Halston CEO Bonnie Takhar, who recently closed on a two-bedroom apartment in the building for $3.1 million. The conversion of 141 Fifth Ave. maintained its ornate 1897 signatures, including original terra cotta detailing and curved plate-glass storefronts. The penthouse’s broker, Emily Beare of CORE, declined to comment.
