Dr. Jay's founder flips 15 CPW spread to Nautica neighbor

It's New York Fashion Week, but models aren't the only ones with quick-changes on the Upper West Side. A preppy makeover is also likely in store for a two-bedroom, 28th-floor apartment at Robert A.M. Stern's 15 Central Park West, which just sold for $11.39 million to philanthropist Gina Lin Chu, wife of Nautica founder David Chu, according to deed filed today with the city.

The seller of the 2,367-square-foot spread was another clothing mogul with a decidedly different style: Joseph Betesh, founder of hip-hop retailer Dr. Jay's. The urban fashion maven, and now, apartment flipper, paid just $5.7 million for the apartment in April 2008.

The Chus actually already live at 15 Central Park West -- in a sixth-floor, 1,605-square-foot condo they bought for $2.99 million in August 2008. But it's their duplex penthouse at the former Mayfair Hotel that's drawn the most intrigue.

The 7,700-square-foot condo hit the market in March for $32.8 million, placing it among the top 10 most expensive condo listings in the city at the time. It has since lost a little luster, undergoing two rounds of price cuts that brought it to its current asking price of $25.8 million, but garnered some star power when the Post reported earlier this summer that Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick had been eyeing the place.

The Chus were not immediately available for comment, nor was Joanna Cutler, of her eponymous brokerage, who had the listing for the new spread.

Charles Blaichman’s CB Developers is in contract to acquire three adjacent five-story buildings for $25.2 million, or $420 per square foot, The Real Deal has learned.

The rental buildings at 587-591 Third Avenue, near 39th Street, offer a combined 60,000 buildable square feet. They sit next door to an 18-story, 91-unit rental project under construction on the corner. CB Developers, in partnership with Hoboken, N.J.-based Ironstate Development and Soho-based SK Development Group, are overseeing the development of the site, which is located at 593-597 Third Avenue, also known as 200 East 39th Street.

The retail includes Wharf Bar and Grill and formerly Margarita Murphy’s, which closed in April.

A Chinese nonprofit family trust known as the J. T. Tai & Company Foundation has owned the site for more than 30 years, property records show. The foundation is also in contract to sell a Sutton Place development site at 1055-1057 Second Avenue for $19 million, as The Real Deal reported in July.

Joanna Cutler represented both the buyer and the seller. The deal entered contract in May.

Blaichman could not be immediately reached for comment.
