The Real DealAugust 29, 2013A couple of weeks after offloading a three-bedroom Greenwich Village duplex co-op, TV host and interior designer Nate Berkus has grabbed another one.
He bought a $5 million unit on the 15th and 16th floors of 39 Fifth Avenue, near 10th Street. The seller was former journalist Rosalind Resnick. CORE Group brokers Emily Beare and Tony Sargent had the listing.
The $4.9 million co-op he left behind was on West 9th Street, and featured a 300-square-foot den and two offices, the New York Observer said.
Berkus is best known for hosting the short-lived “Nate Berkus Show,” and will soon serve as the face of the new NBC reality competition series “American Dream Builders,” formerly known as “Renovation Nation.” [NYO] – Mark Maurer
