It was 1998 when Janet Jackson purchased a three bedroom, three and a half bathroom apartment on Central Park West for $2.8 million. Now, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, the performer has listed the 2,100 square foot home for $8.995 million. The listing comes three years after Jackson last resided in the apartment—according to WSJ, she hasn’t lived there since the pandemic’s onset in New York City.
Located on the 34th floor, the unit offers gorgeous views of the park, and as the condominium is attached to the Trump International Hotel, luxurious amenities including room service. One of the bedrooms is currently configured as a library, with custom millwork and built in cabinetry, complemented by moody red paint. Though the finishes are a bit dated, the primary bedroom is well outfitted with dual vanities and a deep soak tub in its ensuite bathroom, a walk in closet, and three additional closets. The layout of the corner unit allows for the dining room, the kitchen, and each bedroom to enjoy the aforementioned spectacular city views from floor to ceiling windows, which were indeed what attracted Jackson to the space.
“Whenever entering my apartment of 25 years, I always treasured my home’s wonderful location and the breathtaking views that capture the magic and excitement of New York,” Jackson told the Wall Street Journal. “Stepping through its threshold instantly made me feel so tranquil and at peace—so many memories.”
