Could Sean “Puff Daddy to P. Diddy to Puff Daddy” Combs’ old townhouse digs at 807 Park Avenue be headed for another do-over?
Formerly 813 Park Avenue, the 12-story, 25-foot-wide building is located between East 74th and East 75th streets. The entire limestone and brick building was snagged by Combs in 1999. After the moniker-shifting music mogul sold the property in 2004, it was converted into three townhouse-style condominiums, which sat on the market for several years, according to the New York Times.
Around 2008, developer Siraj Dadabhoy renamed the building to 807 Park Avenue and enlisted Eric Cohler to redesign the apartments. The three refreshed units measured 5,500 to 6,500 square feet, with private elevators for each residence and 17-foot-tall living rooms. However, the condos were pulled from the market in September that year and rented out, Curbed reported.
Fresh permits filed today call for more construction work on the 1899 building (actually, the document is a new building application, but we’re pretty sure the developer is renovating the existing structure). According to the Schedule A filing, there will be five new residences — three duplexes and two triplexes. The architect of record is Platt Byard Dovell White Architects LLP.
A total square footage of 18,747 divided by five apartments translates to about 3,700 square feet per home — not quite the 5,500 to 6,500 range of the previous iteration, but still massive.
