Sir Paul McCartney will be living in the sky with Nancy. According to The New York Post, the couple just bought a trophy $15.5 million penthouse duplex at 1045 Fifth Ave. While the building is not iconic, the penthouse, with its wraparound balconies, boasts glamorous Central Park views.
It was owned by developer Manny Duell, who made his name buying rental buildings and converting them to co-ops. Duell, who died in 1977, created the duplex for his wife, Irene, who lived there until her death last summer at 92.
The Times once described the penthouse as a “glamorous 1960s time capsule with a dash of Hollywood.” Co-op buyers must use their own names and they were listed as Paul and Nancy McCartney. Douglas Elliman listing broker Deanna Raida declined to comment.
