Beside her $18 million townhome at 153 Franklin St., she also owns three units at 155 Franklin St. totaling near $30 million. In 2014, Swift purchased an $19.95 million penthouse duplex at 155 Franklin St. from “Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson. Later on, she purchased another $9.75 million unit in the same building.
Other notable residents of the charming brick building include Orlando Bloom, comedian Aziz Ansari, former New York Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh, and Steven Soderbergh. Now another unit, on the fourth floor of 155 Franklin, has sold for $9.99 million. While the space was intended to serve as a rental, the buyer reportedly fell in love with the unit and purchased it on the spot crowning them the title of Taylor’s swift’s new neighbor.
