Original Harrison Ford Puts NYC Apartment on Market for $16 Million

Harrison Ford's celebrity has graced the NYC skyline atop his luxury digs at City Prairie at Chelsea's 206 West 17th for nearly a decade. Earlier this month, he enlisted Corcoran super-broker Deborah Grubman to help pawn this overpriced property to an idiot with a desire to live in the shadow of Indiana Jones.

Ford's 5,500-square-foot penthouse loft, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a 2,300-square-foot private roof terrace is located in a building that once housed the warehouse and offices for Barney's. It was converted into 11 full-floor "authentic" lofts around the turn of the century by uber famous celebrity developer Cary Tamarkin.

From the Corcoran listing:

This penthouse was built with the most amazing custom craftsmanship imaginable. Keyed elevator brings you into a vestibule and the journey begins. Anigre wood and poured concrete radiant heated floors are carried throughout this eleven room apartment. There are four exposures with the most captivating views. Sun flooded during the day and a transformation into high drama in the evening. The grand scale of the living room/dining room with wood burning fire place is great for entertaining. The kitchen has the finest appliances with stainless steel, custom anigre wood cabinetry and soapstone countertops. There is a dining area and a den flowing off of the kitchen. The master bedroom suite has a wonderful dressing room and bath; hardwood floors, numerous windows and stunning built-ins. A library/bedroom, 3 additional bedrooms, a home office, a home gym, 4.5 baths and laundry room complete this level - the floor above is a private roof terrace. The views are staggering as you can see all of Manhattan, the Hudson River and beyond. Sunsets are breathtaking, eating al fresco is a given with a wet bar on this level. The minimalistic design of this property has a warmth and sophistication that is unrivaled; definitely worth seeing.

Have you ever wondered how much it costs to own a multi-million dollar property? Here's what Harrison has been forking out each month for his posh NYC apartment:

  • Monthly mortgage payment on a 30yr loan with a down payment of $1.6 million: $72,963.00 per month
  • Monthly maintenance fee: $5694.00
  • Monthly taxes: $8137.00
  • Total Monthly payments: $86,794.00 per month

The question you are probably asking is how can this place be worth $16 million? 

Well, it's not. This property is only worth $16 million to the pathetic individual who feels the need to satiate his ego by shelling out an astonishing amount of money to be obliquely associated with a movie star.

Ford purchased the property in 2002 for $5.3 million. He stands to earn a $10 million profit from the sale. And, he's not even including a replica of his Indiana hat in the sale.
