Owned For 1 Week, Walker Tower 2BR Now Wants $2.9M More

CurbedDecember 13, 2013
Chelsea's record-breaking, highly-praised conversion, Walker Tower, has its first resale—and it's fittingly ridiculous. The seller wants nearly $2.9 million more than the $5,027,609 that he paid for it, but what's totally absurd is that the seller closed on the unit exactly one week before re-listing it. Evidently, the seller, a man named Burt Freiman, believes that his weeklong ownership of the 2BR/2.5BA 2,179-square-foot unit increased its value by more than 50 percent to $7.9 million. Even if it was a resale from a certain blonde actress, that increase would still be mindboggling.
