Curbed charts the ambitious real estate plans Jeff Koons has for two townhouses on Manhattan’s Upper East Side:
In 2009, Koons bought 11 East 67th Street, which is currently divided up into several apartments, for $12 million. Last year, he bought the house next door at 13 East 67th Street, owned by a Rockefeller and said to be in a “Grey Gardens” type of decrepit state, for $20 million. Now Koons is ready to move ahead with plans to combine both townhouses into a single-family home comprised of 21,500 square feet. According to our friends at PropertyShark, that’s just 200 feet short of Manhattan’s current largest single-family home at 4 East 75th Street, though that looks like it will be topped by the emir of Qatar’s place.
