Designer Zac Posen Buys Stylish Upper East Side Penthouse for $3.5M

Fashion designer Zac Posen, whose creations are worn by Beyoncé, Rihanna, Claire Danes, and Natalie Portman, recently bought an Upper East Side duplex penthouse for $3.5 million, says Luxury Listings.

Fashionistas are scratching their collective heads over why Posen chose the Upper East Side instead of SoHo or Tribeca, where fashion folks normally like to nest. Posen, a native New Yorker and “Project Runway” judge, had bucked the trend and headed north to scoop up the premium penthouse at 210 East 73rd St.

The classic six—that’s what New Yorkers call a two-bedroom unit with formal living room, dining room, and kitchen—is loaded with lovely details, including hand-painted and beamed ceilings and mixed hardwood/iron staircase railings. An 1,800-square-foot terrace has plenty of room for ornamental plantings and entertainment.

The designer’s unit is one of 81 in the building, which includes a doorman, gym, and outdoor courtyard. Designed by architect Emery Roth and built in 1928, the full-service building combines traditional appearances with modern amenities.

Posen, who designed the glow-in-the-dark ballgown that Danes wore to the Met Gala last spring, will be designing new flight attendant uniforms for Delta Airlines.
