The slim, 82-story condominium, designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel, offers a host of amenities, including some of the world’s greatest art pieces next door and in galleries at the building’s base, courtesy of MoMA.
Dr. Mihaljevic, along with Anna Weaving, paid $6 million for a 56th-floor apartment at the blue-glass condo at 157 West 57th Street, once the city’s most expensive condominium. The closing price, though, was $4 million less than what the seller, identified only as CM157 LLC, bought it for brand-new in 2014.
The 2,009-square-foot apartment has two bedrooms and two and a half baths, plus views of the Hudson River.
Dr. Mihaljevic, whose primary home is in Cleveland, took over as chief executive and president of the Cleveland Clinic in 2019.
The biggest townhouse sale was the converted firehouse at 78 Morton Street. It sold for $19.9 million — below the $21.8 million asking price from a year ago.
The red brick house, a quick stroll from Pier 45 at Hudson River Park, is 25 feet wide and four stories high, with a finished lower level. The interior comprises 7,281 square feet, with three bedrooms, four full baths and two powder rooms, according to the listing with Leslie J. Garfield. There is also ample outdoor space, including two 25-by-40-foot terraces, one beyond a spacious eat-in kitchen and another off a bedroom on the top floor. The home also has a gym with a sauna, an entertainment room and a four-car garage.
The building was erected in 1864 and served as home for the Howard Engine Company No. 34, a volunteer firefighting squad known as “Red Rover,” according to the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation. It eventually became part of the New York City Fire Department, but was decommissioned in 1975 amid the city’s financial crisis.
