Level Global Founder, Wife Downsize To $28 Million Soho Penthouse


Now that David Ganek’s got a bunch of free time, what with his hedge fund having gone under due to the insider-trading scandal that sent his partner to jail, he realized something: He doesn’t need five bedrooms or the grand entertaining spaces or solid brass bar or to live in Jackie Kennedy’s old digs, especially when he and the missus are getting robbed blind every now and again. Nope, 740 Park just doesn’t do it for Dave and Danielle anymore, so they’ll sell it for twice what they paid nine years ago and grab one of those nice-looking three-bedrooms Jared Kushner is selling down at the Puck Building.

Hedge fund manager David Ganek of advisory firm Level Global Investors and his novelist wife Danielle are in contract to buy a penthouse condominium at developer Jared Kushner’s Puck Building in Soho for $28 million.

The 6,000-square-foot, three-bedroom apartment is one of six at the penthouse-only building at 295 Lafayette Street….

The apartment features cast-iron columns, vaulted ceilings and outdoor space.
