While former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort rests his head in a federal prison in Pennsylvania — or, possibly within the next few weeks, the jail complex on Rikers Island — apartment hunters can pick up one of his old pads, a swanky SoHo loft, for a cool $3.66 million.
The apartment is one of five New York properties in Manafort’s roughly $22 million New York real estate portfolio — testaments to the former foreign lobbyist’s high-flying lifestyle — that the government seized as part of a deal with prosecutors in which he pleaded guilty to two conspiracy charges.
The article goes on to state the following:
The fourth-floor loft at 29 Howard St. in SoHo is the only one of the five properties that the US Marshals Service has put out on the market so far. Feds alleged that he scored the property in 2012 with money he made lobbying for pro-Russian groups in Ukraine.
According to testimony last year in Manafort’s federal case in Virginia, Manafort had told his daughter and son-in-law to act as if they had been living in the condo — but it was actually being rented out through AirBnb for over a year.
The loft also came up in the most recent indictment against Manafort, in which the Manhattan District Attorney has accused him of residential mortgage fraud and other charges.
Manafort may be staying in protective isolation on Rikers when he is brought back to New York to face the state charges. Neither the Manhattan DA nor defense attorneys for Manafort responded to requests for comment.
The other properties seized from Manafort are a 5,574-square-foot mansion in the Hamptons that features 10 bedrooms, a tennis court and a putting green that could go for $8.9 million, according to a Zillow estimate.
