Real Estate NYC celebrity real estate: Here's who's buying, selling and renovating By Heather Senison firstname.lastname@example.org Updated June 15, 2016 12:44 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email New York is teeming with the rich and famous -- who can’t seem to make up their minds about where they want to live. To help you keep track, here’s an update on celebrity New Yorkers who are currently buying, selling and renovating their homes. Taylor Swift Photo Credit: StreetEasy / Corcoran Taylor Swift has decided to keep it local while her TriBeCa home is being renovated. The "Welcome to New York" singer has rented a sprawling $40,000-a-month town house in the West Village, according to Curbed NY. The Cornelia Street rental has five bedrooms, outdoor space -- oh, and an indoor swimming pool. While Swift swims laps in her new digs, her penthouse at 155 Franklin St. will be undergoing major renovations. According to city Department of Building's permits obtained by StreetEasy, Swift filed for more than $500 million in renovations to the home she bought from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson in 2014.

With 3,000 square feet of space, the flat-style unit includes two bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms, as well as 11-foot ceilings, a private elevator and a host of other amenities that appeal to celebs looking for a bit of privacy in the city. The former "Full House" star bought the condo for $7.3 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. Jonah Hill Photo Credit: StreetEasy Jonah Hill has staked claim on some prime New York City real estate. The 32-year-old actor bought a unit -- a word that severely understates the size of this place -- at the Schumacher, located at 36 Bleecker St. in NoHo, back in September, according to StreetEasy. Hill's new 3,280-square-foot loft includes four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms and costs $9,164,250.

The 1980s movie star listed her two-bed, 1 1/2-bath pad at 122 E. 10th St. with Weichert earlier in June. The fourth-floor penthouse duplex walk-up is in an 1858 building in the St. Marks Historic District's Renwich Triangle. It features historic details like 10-foot-high exposed beamed ceilings, antique windows and two wood-burning fireplaces, along with new additions like a skylight on the second floor and a renovated marble bathroom.

The two are expecting their first child together. According to the Oxford Property Group listing, the loft space at 112 Greene St. has exposed brick and 13-foot ceilings. The property is listed for $5.5 million, according to the listing. Keith Richards and Patti Hansen Photo Credit: StreetEasy Greenwich Village is apparently not rock 'n' roll enough for Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richard and his wife, Patti Hansen, as the pair have decided to sell their four-bedroom duplex co-op after owning it for just two years. The 1 Fifth Ave. home, which they bought for $10.5 million, is now listed on StreetEasy for $12.23 million. First constructed in 1929, the building was originally a luxury hotel, but was repurposed as a co-op and remodeled in 2011 by architect Joe Serrins. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Photo Credit: Curbed via Corcoran Two years after their "conscious uncoupling," Gwyneth Paltrow -- once famous for films such as "The Royal Tenenbaums" and now known for her blog Goop -- and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin are selling their 4,000-square-foot fall-out-of-love-pad in the River Lofts at 416 Washington St. in TriBeCa. They listed their pet-friendly, terraced apartment with Corcoran in March for $14.25 million but the listing has since dropped to $12.85 million. Frank Lloyd Wright Photo Credit: Curbed For a cool $26 million, architecture buffs can own a piece of New York City development history, as The Plaza's Frank Lloyd Wright Suite is listed with Douglas Elliman. The iconic architect lived in the four-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot apartment between 1954 and 1959 (the year he died) while he was working on building the Guggenheim Museum. If the price seems low to own property in one of New York City's most famous buildings, which opened at Central Park South and Fifth Avenue in 1907, that's because it is: The price dropped by $13.5 million from an earlier listing in March, according to Business Insider. Michelle Williams Photo Credit: Curbed Michelle Williams has reportedly decided her Ditmas Park mansion needs a makeover. The eight-bedroom home at 1440 Albemarle Rd., which she bought last year for $2.5 million, was built in 1905 and is located in the Prospect Park South Historic District. According to a proposal she filed with the Landmarks Preservation Commission, as first reported by Brownstoner in March, Williams' plans include restoring the home's original clapboard facade and renovating its back porch. She is planning another $36,000 upgrade to the interior as well, according to Brownstoner. Katie Couric Photo Credit: Curbed New York City news queen Katie Couric and her financier husband, John Molner, bought a 3,966-square-foot, five-bedroom apartment in the Peter Pennoyer building at 151 E. 78th St. for $12.2 million in March. Among the home's lavish amenities are a bathroom with heated floors, oak cabinets in the kitchen and floor-to-ceiling French windows in the living and dining rooms, according to real estate blog 6sqft. Frank Stella Photo Credit: Trulia Milan Associates bought two back-to-back East Village buildings, one of which was the former home and studio of artist Frank Stella, for $21.5 million, according to The Real Deal. The century-old property at 128 E. 13th St. was owned by Stella from 1978 until 2005, according to the blog. Chris Hughes Photo Credit: StreetEasy Facebook co-founder and former New Republic owner Chris Hughes spent $23.5 million on a West Village townhouse in January, 2016, according to The Real Deal. The blog also reported that the 4,164-square-foot pad in the landmarked 157 W. 12th St. building has the ultimate privacy setting: an underground tunnel that links to a carriage house. The three-bedroom, three-bath property, which Hughes bought with his husband, Sean Eldridge, also has a fireplace, a library and a movie room, The Real Deal reported. Donald Trump Photo Credit: Trump International Realty Who has time for real estate when you're running for president? Donald Trump sold a condo in Trump Park Avenue in March for $14 million, according to The Wall Street Journal. The 4,200-square-foot, four-bedroom apartment, which Trump never lived in, is the second property he's unloaded in recent months. In 2015, the millionaire sold a penthouse in the same building for $21 million, according to Curbed.
