Trump Sells Apartment He Never Lived in for $21 Million
By Melissa Allison
When he’s not stumping for the Republican presidential nomination or making decrees on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” Donald Trump still works in real estate — and he just made a killing on a Manhattan apartment.
Trump sold the nearly 6,200-square-foot dwelling on the 24th floor of his 32-story Trump Park Avenue tower for $ 21 million, the Wall Street Journal reports. He listed it in 2013 for $ 35 million and cut the price twice, settling on $ 24.995 million earlier this month. (However, Trump purchased the entire building in 2001 for $ 115 million, the Journal reported, and since has converted it into 120 luxury condo units.)
Trump never lived in the just-sold apartment, listing agent Michelle Griffith of Trump International Realty told the Journal. She also said Trump rejected an offer to rent the place for $ 80,000 a month.
A private elevator leads to the five-bedroom, 7.5-bath space, which boasts high ceilings and lots of windows. Luxurious details include Italian brass doorknobs, custom moldings and a kitchen with marble floors and counter tops.
The master suite features two bathrooms, two walk-in closets and a study.
