Jennifer Aniston bought a third apartment in NYC, this one for $9 million


Earlier this year, Jennifer Aniston bought two condos in NYC, I think. I think it’s two, I mean. I remember reading something about how she going to turn two luxury condos into one big shag-pad. The point is that she finally bought some New York real estate, and this was explained retroactively by her relationship with New York hipster Justin Theroux. Jennifer is currently “on hiatus” and so she’s spent the past few months with Justin in NYC and in their new rental in Beverly Hills, and it seems like Justin is very happy to move into Jennifer’s homes and have her pay the bills.

Several weeks ago, when Aniston and Theroux seemed to be getting pap’d on a daily basis in Manhattan, the tabloids had an interesting story about Heidi Bivens being “sick” of seeing her ex-boyfriend and the woman who had home wrecked her 14-year relationship all over New York, which is Heidi’s home city too. Shortly after that, Aniston and Theroux moved on to LA and the daily pap sessions have ended for now. But! SHE SHALL RETURN. The Hollywood Reporter says that Aniston is all about New York real estate now.

Actress Jennifer Aniston has been especially busy on the real estate front this year, with two previous NYC apartment purchases, the sale of a Beverly Hills house and a $17,000-a-month rental in L.A.

Now, she has reportedly just spent almost $9 million on a three-bedroom, 2,873-square-foot unit in Manhattan at the posh 50 Gramercy Park North, “the only apartment in the building with spectacular views of Gramercy Park from the master suite.”

Amenities include housekeeping, valet, room service, butler service and membership to the David Barton Gym and spa at the neighboring Gramercy Hotel.

Maintenance fees run $11,258 a month. The listing is with Lisa Simonsen and Laura Mondrick of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

I guess this apartment will be “theirs”. The other two New York condos were just “hers” and she and Justin want their own place? Or maybe she just knows it’s a buyer’s market and she’s spending all of her wealth on real estate, which isn’t the worst idea. Maybe she’s just bored and she likes to decorate – not the worst reason, honestly.

By the way, I don’t really get the whole “I’m living in an apartment with a full hotel-like staff” thing. Either live in an apartment, or live in a hotel. CHOOSE. CB says it’s really common up north, though. Maybe my confusion over hotel-like apartment buildings is a Southern thing. In the South, you buy a condo, and you’re on your own.

    Wow! I had completely the opposite reaction. OWNING the property AND getting room service, etc!! (I actually started to salivate a little bit there…)

  2. Canuck says:

    Saves having to hire people yourself, especially if you aren’t there all the time. Also, any issues with staff and it’s not you on the hook for potential lawsuits when they get fired.

  3. Addie says:

    Property is an investment,so no real biggy.
    I’m sure many other celebs have various homes in various places.

    Glad that her and Justin are still going strong.
    I think they really did find a match in each other that Justin didn’t have with Heidi. Jen seems more full of life and humor, kind of what Justin seems like too.Jen seems to bring out less emo-angry and more fun and taking himself less seriously.

    Hope it lasts.

  4. samira677 says:

    The photos of them together look creepy. I just find Jennifer and Justin to be odd.

  5. TXCinderella says:

    The way she is dressing now just cracks me up. She’s trying to be a hipster chick to equal Justin.

  6. serena says:

    $11,258 a month of maintenance. WTF??????????????????????????

  7. lin234 says:

    I’m guessing she’s going to do one of her 5 year renovations with the two apartments and this new one is where she’ll live with Justin until her “real home” gets finished. This new place with all it’s amenities sounds like heaven.

  8. SoCalGal in FL says:

    I can’t stand the way he always seems to be walking ahead of her, the whole hogging the umbrella thing. No manners. Where’s the gentleman? Open the door and let her walk through first!!

  9. Roma says:

    With an ex we lived in a condo that had hotel amenities and it was pretty sweet. Not butler sweet, mind you, but housekeeping and you could order room service plus a kick ass concierge.

    If I didn’t have a dog that needed a back yard, I’d so go back.

  10. Dusty says:

    It is interesting to see “in other news” the number of “once hot” celebrities unloading (or trying to unload) the numerous real estate ventures they purchased when they had money in the bank. Purchasing numerous properties which may be difficult to sell later, when you need the cash, doesn’t seem like the smartest decision. I mean, how many homes does one need?! “A fool and his money are soon parted.”

  11. Dudette says:

    Sorry to be a debby downer but I’m not getting a good vibe about this relationship. I think he’s more than happy to be known as Jennifer Aniston’s man, and it’s not because he’s in love with Jennifer Aniston. But maybe my reading of things is way off. And another thing, these are all HER houses, because she’s the only one in the duo that can actually afford them. Nothing “joint” about any of these recent purchases.

  12. Tiffany S says:

    @Serena I thought the same thing!!!

  13. melangie says:

    Not only will she have to pay 11K in condo fees a month, she will also have to tip every single condo employee every time a service is provided. This means the valet who gets her car, the doorman who hails a cab, the staff who brings up the groceries & no doubt the condo maid. You can get services 24 hours a day in NYC, but you’ll pay dearly. And this is on top of giving Justin his “walking around money”.

  14. Mac says:

    Is Justin also on hiatus??

    Lucky prick needs to knock her up ASAP.

  15. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    What does she do for a living, save lives or something?

  16. lisa says:

    Why is this news..

    but funny how other celebs are slammed for having several homes.

    But she has said repeatedly that she does not plan on moving to NYC for perm.. so why all the homes.. whatever. I expect to hear in a few months that she has sold something. I guess she wanted to live in a better part of town. She already had 2 cooks and a butler. So she is use to having that kind of service. (she said this in an interview. not making up stuff)

  17. Cheyenne says:

    Does this guy come off as a gigolo to anybody else, or is it just me?

  18. iseepinkelefants says:

    Bitch. I want to live in Gramercy Park, but now it’ll probably become pap heaven. At least before it was confined to the West Village, now she’s going to ruin an otherwise nice and quiet neighborhood (not to mention raise rents because “Jennifer Aniston has a home here” ugh).

  19. BerMan says:

    Well, if you had the money, it makes sense. One for her, one for him and one for when you can really tolerate and like each other. Its every hiding persons dream. – btw still like her casual attire to match his. But she’s got a long way to blend in to NYC style.

  20. Anguishedcorn says:

    I’m just so embarrassed for her when I see pics of them together, and how she has morphed like a chameleon. She is an empty vessel.

  21. abby says:

    “In the South, you buy a condo, and you’re on your own.”

    Yeah, not the entire South. If you’re in Atlanta or Miami, this is pretty common in the nicer condo buildings. We have fancy big city stuff too :)

  22. poopie says:

    i don’t get any ‘feel good vibes’ from these two. i WANT to, i REALLY do, but they are NOT cute together. he’s very creepy with an evil eye maybe… jen can do better. and i’m SOOOOO JEALOUS of her new digs

  23. Jen34 says:

    My best friend used to live in a hotel/apartment in Chicago. It was fabulous. She had maid service, valet for parking. She could drop her keys at the front desk when she left. No worries about mail when traveling. When her parents came to visit, they could stay in the hotel instead of with her. I was so sad when she moved.

  24. tracking says:

    The concierge services make perfect sense–compensates for much smaller home size in NYC and eliminates the need for live-in staff. Perfect. And the key to Gramercy Park is pretty freaking awesome.

  25. P.J. says:

    This is how the top 1% lives! Sure it costs a fortune, but she can afford it. I think a lot of people just don’t realize how big a difference there is between life for the rich and the rest of us.

  26. Wildone says:

    Hotel/apartment sounds like a dream to me.
    I can see 3 home in 3 different states but 3 apartment in the same state just a different part of town that not really far from each other makes no seine at all; I hope he footing the bill for some of these homes and is not just living off her which is what it seem like is happening. Jen been buying this man jewelry, paintings, motorcycle it seems she keeping him a kept man , it seems like he left his girlfriend of 14 years for someone how can buy him the life style he wants.

    Addie: @(I think they really did find a match in each other that Justin didn’t have with Heidi)

    How can you say that when before Justin started dating Jen he was off the media radar. There are no pictures of Justin and Heidi walking in NY, parting together, picture of them on a friend’s facebook having a good time (Jen and Justin facebook pic are so photo op ) so it’s hard for me to see how you can judge who better match is when you have nothing to compare.

  27. Hautie says:

    So Aniston paid $9 million for the apartment. Plus there is a monthly HOA/maintenance of $11,258. H.o.l.y.c.r.a.p.

    I can think of lots of things to do with that eleven grand a month. And none of it has to do with maintenance.

  28. roxy750 says:

    Anyone check out her thumbs?

  29. bk says:

    $11,258 a month in maintenance is not an investment.

  30. lucy2 says:

    She certainly has the money to do all that- must be nice! I don’t know why she bought 3 in NY, but probably not a bad investment with the depressed market now.
    I think the hotel-like living is becoming more and more common in very high end apartments.

  31. WTF says:

    speaking of dogs……where is Jenn’s dog? Since norman died we never hear/see her other dog Dolly?? Shouldn’t she be walking it out and about in NYC??????

  32. Leigh says:

    Hotel/Apartments are fantastic.
    Ever run out of groceries and have nothing in the house? Room service. Not to mention the maid service, concierge services – guests suites.. It’s pretty fab.

  33. Nev says:

    @Addy 8:59 wonder how you know what Heidi and Justin were like?

  34. Jules says:

    I hate that she is obviously dressing just like him…it screams of desperation.

  35. Emma says:

    These are all re-cycled photos from the week JustJen first arrived in NYC as a couple. The top photo of them both in hats and shades was taken when they made their first outing, just after Brad ‘explained’ the comments he made about ‘his’ life in that “Parade” interview.

  36. fabgrrl says:

    An apartment with hotel staff? That is like my dream come true!

  37. Aly says:

    @ Nev
    I was wondering the same thing too.

  38. blonde on the dock says:

    November 7th, 2011 at 10:10 am
    Does this guy come off as a gigolo to anybody else, or is it just me?

    So far, it appears it’s just you.

    These people that play dressup for a living are waaaay overpaid!

  39. Joanna says:

    omg! i want her life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Cheyenne says:

    @blondie: As Kaiser noted, Justin seems very happy to move into Aniston’s homes and have her pay the bills.

    If that isn’t a gigolo, tell me what is.

  41. Evie (not Eve) says:

    If she’s accustomed to fancier things and wants to maintain that level if comfort, the why shouldn’t she foot the bill? It’s not like she’s hurting for cash. And if it was a man buying the home or what have you, no one would be calling the woman a whore (at least I hope not).

    And it looks like Justin has worked on at least three scripts this year: (Rock of Ages, Zoolander 2, and Neighborhood watch), so he’s been working.

  42. Patricia says:

    I think she’s like Jess Simpson – more than happy to pay for a companion/sperm donor.

    This guy seems like a douche and I don’t think his career is going anywhere. Ever. Working or not.

    It will be interesting to see where their “Mutual Plan B” goes.

  43. Heine says:

    An apartment with a hotel staff? Yes please! That would be awesome if I had enough money.

    I think she bought this to live in maybe while the other apartments are renovated. It’s possible that she will just flip them and then sell them for an obscene price like she did that house in LA.

    He’s not a gigolo or a kept man. He’s a multi-millionaire on his own. He may not have Aniston’s megamillions but there are very few people in this world who have her kind of wealth.

    And I don’t believe Kaiser is privy to all of their finances. Kaiser ‘noting’ anything about a celebrity is speculation, not fact.

    There is nothing weird about a man moving in with a woman, especially if she has a nicer place. I know my friends who have decided to live with their significant other moved to whichever partner had the better living situation.

  44. Violet says:


    Yup, I totally get the gigolo vibe from Justin. Jen’s gotten him signed up with CAA, introduced him to all sorts of Hollywood hotshots, plus treated him to luxury vacations and sweet digs.

    His bank balance is a mere fraction of Jen’s, who’s worth about $110 million. According to, Justin is worth about half as much as Jen’s latest apartment. By Hollywood standards, he’s practically a pauper so I’m sure Jen’s footing the bills; Justin simply can’t afford to keep up with her extravagant lifestyle.

    I can just imagine the conversation that took place before Jen called her realtor ~

    Justin: Baby, I love Gramercy Park.
    Jen: OK, lemme grab my checkbook.

    Best. Sugar. Mama. EVER.

  45. Cheyenne says:

    Heine: There is nothing weird about a man moving in with a woman, especially if she has a nicer place.

    I have no problem with that at all, as long as he’s splitting the expenses 50/50.

    If he’s not, give him the old heave-ho. Nobody needs a parasite hanging around the house.

  46. Camille says:

    Of course she was getting papped every day around that time in NYC, she had that movie that she directed to promote.
    And when her next movie comes out- in February she’ll be seen everywhere again. This woman has a pattern that she ALWAYS does.

    As for her getting a new apartment, whoop-dee-doo. How is that interesting or even news worthy. :roll:

  47. blonde on the dock says:

    @Cheyenne: as if Kaiser knows what her financial arrangement is with this guy! It’s possible he actually cares for her and pays his own way. I’m not getting a gigilo vibe. The guy does well enough on his own.

  48. dahlia1947 says:

    It must be nice to be u Miss Aniston! I’m envious!!! I hope she bought those properties for investment purposes and not cause she wants to play house with this dude..

  49. Heine says:

    Camille: Every celebrity has that pattern. Every. Single. One.

    Why? Because they are contractually obligated to publicize their film/tv show/whatever. What is an easy way to do it that helps everyone? Get yourself papped.

    When the paps sell the pictures, they get money.

    When the blogs/magazines post them they get hits (and more advertising).

    Whatever project the actor is currently working on is mentioned in every story the blog/magazine writes about the new pictures, so the project gets ‘free’ publicity for months before it premieres. It’s a win-win-win situation for everyone.

    And everyone does it. This is not a pattern exclusive to Aniston.

  50. truthful says:

    its sad, she could do better-but I guess she’s happy.

    HE needs to dress like a man and not a tween/20 yo old.

    he looks stupid

  51. N.D. says:

    I don’t get why he has to pay for her whims really. If she isn’t ready to really downsize to the level he can afford to maintain then it’s her responsibility to cough up the dough. It’s not like she has this generous lifestyle because he demands it, it’s HER lifestyle and it’s only fair that she finances it. So – no gigolo wibes on that account.

    He does seem happy to use her connections (CAA signing) and paricipate in publicity but it still doesn’t mean that’s his only motivation. It’s totally possible she’s pushing it on him because she thinks he deserves it and wants the best for him etc.

  52. ladybert62 says:

    I dont understand why someone would spend mega bucks for a place and then spend the next five years rennovating it and then sell it – if I recall that is what ms. aniston has done in the past.

    It is not something I would do but then I dont have her time or money!

  53. Jayna says:

    I saw her in an interview recently and she said made it seem like she would still live in California a big portion of the time because she said it is where the work is. She called herself bicoastal.

  54. Monica says:

    Even if she renovates- hopefully she can make a profit like she did with her other house ( which everyone said would not make nearly what she even bought it for)
    Real estate is great if you have the money for it. Congrats to her.

  55. Cheyenne** Gigilo,all the way.I hope she docked his pay for not holding the umbrella over her head.That or she wanted to find out if her hat really was waterproof.

  56. Cheyenne says:

    blonde on the dock: .I’m not getting a gigilo vibe. The guy does well enough on his own.

    He’s doing well enough on his own and he’s doing even better living off her.

    As long as he’s living with her, taking up half the space and eating up half the food, he can pay half the expenses. If he’s paying anything less — and you know damn well he’s paying a lot less — he’s a user and a taker. Also known as a gigolo.

  57. Cheyenne says:

    @ladybert: In a seller’s market, buying a house, renovating it and then reselling it is a good way to make a sh*tload of loot. A lot of people did just that before the housing market went bust. Buy it for a mil, make a mil’s worth of renovations and sell it for $3 mil. Profit: $1 mil.

  58. fddfhfdhf says:

    Her daily photo ops with the Eddie Munster look alike and short Justin conveintly took place exactly when Brad called his life before Angelina boring and was promoting Moneyball. The daily photo ops ended as soon as Brad’s promotion ended. hmmmmmmmm

    Watch, once their terrible movie comes out and bombs they will break up. Jen can’t keep a man to safe her life.

  59. v adams says:

    Bitch get out of ma city. Damn! 9 million dollars. When there are people on the street looking for a home to live in. Seriously I have to see a woman with a child sitting in Atlantic Terminal with her child begging for food. I have given her some information on shelters, but they sometimes cannot let her live there because they are full. See Jennifer because of your 9 milli, and buying up property that could benefit someone’s will to live. You need servants. I swear if I see those freaks near OWS, saying they support the cause. I will throw potatoes at their face. Sorry they bother me.

  60. blonde on the dock says:

    If he’s paying anything less — and you know damn well he’s paying a lot less — he’s a user and a taker. Also known as a gigolo.

    Cheyenne: I don’t know that he’s paying any less and either do you. Lol.

  61. Jess says:

    Maybe she should consider building villas for refugees instead and have them name after her. She’d make a lot of people happy! It’s annoying how Angie gets bashed for having an expensive purse but when Jen buys a 9 mil condo, people say oh, it’s an investment.

  62. cat says:

    Um… she has a LOT of money. What does it matter if he pays his ‘share’ if it’s considered HER apartment. I don’t get it. It’s very old school. I’m curious why she bought another apartment – maybe to keep the paparazzi guessing ? But I’m sure they have a comfortable arrangement and I don’t think she’s getting taken advantage of, in any way. She’s probably like, ‘listen hon, I have an obscene amount of money, so let’s just say as far as this apartment(s), I’ll take care of it.’

    More power to her in that regard! (Would you be saying the same thing if the gender roles were reversed, I might ask?)

  63. Camille says:

    Jess: Yep. Aniston is perfect and can do NO wrong. Didn’t you know that?

  64. Svetlana says:

    @cat Dontcha know, if a man picks up the tab, he’s being chivalrous. But a woman paying for a man? We can’t have that.

    The aparment’s in her name, she pays for it. No messy dividing if things head south. She wants it, can afford it, good for her. If she only dated men who were her financial equal, I’m sure she’d get dogged, too.

    And thanks, y’all. I thought for a second we wouldn’t have a post about Aniston that didn’t try to shame her not being Angelina. Because JA should be rescuing all the homeless people of NYC. Look, at least she’s not Johnny Depp, and complaining about taxes.

    Anyway, the apartment looks fab. Except whoever owned it first appears to have vomitted toile and shabby chic EVERYWHERE.

  65. Mac says:

    Justin Theroux is a misogynist with a track record of deceit, and that’s probably just the tip of the iceberg.

    The fact that he’s only bought her a gaudy looking gold pimp ring and some kitchen utensils leaves me with the impression he’s not worth anywhere close to $4 Million.

  66. Amanda says:

    Why on earth does she need three condos in the same city?

  67. crtb says:

    I hate that she is obviously dressing just like him…it screams of desperation.

    Really? Why? I love when couples dress alike. Brad Pitt does it all the time.

  68. crtb says:

    NYC is one of the most expensive cities in the world. 9 million is nothing to pay for an apartment. Many celeberties have paid much more for their places. Alec Baldwin just paid 11 million for his new place in the village. People ask why does she need 3 place in Manhattan. Why does Sarah Jessica Parker need 3 houses in the Hamptons? Because they can.

  69. Katherine says:

    . . . leaves me with the impression he’s not worth anywhere close to $4 Million.

    The $4 million is a myth. No one knows what this guy is worth. They’re just trying to make him look more successful than he is by suggesting he got big fees for directing or scriptwriting. But he’s not at that level yet.

  70. Addie says:

    @Wildone & Niv observing their chemistry/interaction and behaviour while with their partner, just like any other celeb couples.
    Although Justin wasn’t a famous actor, he still was an actor who attended events with his then girlfriend Heidi.
    Now he is photographed with Jen, I personally see a huge difference, in a good way.

    Funny a lot of people use pics as a basis for saying that celeb x seems happier now that he is with celeb y rather than celeb z by simply OBSERVING, but the same can’t be said about Justin, Jen and Heidi.


  71. kira says:

    Investment property? For what? The horrifying possibility that her mega-fortune will dip below the 150 million mark? Oh NO!–how will she ever cope? She might need to clip coupons…so tragic.

    It makes me laugh how rich people are always thinking of making more. She promotes bottled water, perfume, buys real estate investments, and makes so many crap movies which pay big bucks. Yet, it’s not enough? Go figure.

  72. anonymous says:

    Gigilo or not, I don’t blame Justin Theroux women do the same thing. His other girl friend simply did not have the Hollywood connections JA has. Example, we would never have known who Justin Theroux is if he didn’t hook up with Jennifer Aniston.

  73. Lampen says:

    Thanks , I’ve just been searching for information approximately this subject for a long time and yours is the greatest I have came upon so far. However, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you positive concerning the supply?|What i don’t realize is actually how you’re now not actually a lot more neatly-favored than you might be right now. You are very intelligent.
