Sleep Where Shia LaBeouf (Pretended To) Hath Slept, For $13 Million

In 2003, an unnamed 47-year old "financial services pro" bought a 6,250 square foot apartment in the Flatiron district. Recently he's been thinking about putting it on the market, having decided that the fact that an actor (who once shared a sandwich with a couplea Goldman Sachs employees) spent a couple days there will really up the resale value of the place.

The palatial two-story digs has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a sprawling 3,250-square-foot private roof terrace that can be reached by two elevators. In the movie, Michael Douglas, who returns as Gordon Gecko, leaves jail after serving a 20-year prison sentence for insider trading and heads straight to this apartment, where his estranged daughter, Winnie (Carey Mulligan) is living. The money man had been hoping to take advantage of the buzz surrounding “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” — since the penthouse pad is prominently featured in the film.

How turned on are you right now? What if the owner throws in the used pair of Gucci loafers ShiLa wore in the film and a script that was left behind with notes from Gary Cohn, who visited the thespian on set? Six to a twelve amiright? For those who need convincing, a closer look:

Sleep Where Dan Loeb Hath Slept

The Third Point founder is reportedly looking for a buyer for his 10,674-square-foot penthouse at 15 Central Park West. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, people hear that Loeb "wants $100 million," which would represent a 122.22% return (DL and his wife bought the place for $45 million in 2008). While perhaps a tad pricey, consider that back in November, Sandy Weill was able to get $88 million for his 15CPW apartment, a relative dump at 6,744-square-feet.* As for the Loebs, they are apparently "in search of something larger," if you've got any leads. It seems pretty obvious that a fellow hedge fund manager with a 20,000 square foot UES mansion** and a liquidity problem might want to get in touch but we'll let him come to that in his own time. Apartment Hunting For The Superrich [NYT] *Weill told prospective buyers that he'd be donating the money to charity but maybe they would've done this for him anyway. **Selling points: Indoor pool, bar and lounge with a closet.
