Level Global Founder Moving On Down(town)

Jul 11 2014 | 6:20am ET

After nearly a decade on the Upper East Side, in one of Manhattan’s most exclusive buildings, Level Global Investors co-founder David Ganek is moving to a Soho landmark.

Ganek and his wife, novelist Danielle, have paid $28 million for a penthouse in Lafayette Street’s Puck Building. The couple is set to list their current home in 740 Park Avenue—seeking about $44 million, according to the New York Observer.

The Ganeks have been considering a move downtown for several years, the Observer reports. Their new home is smaller than the old, with three bedrooms compared to five. But the 6,000-square-foot apartment—one of only six at the Puck Building—does have vaulted ceilings and outdoor space.

The Ganek’s duplex at 740 Park was once the home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The couple recently completed renovated the space, which features a state-of-the-art kitchen, staff quarters and large entertaining spaces—including one with a huge custom-made bronze bar.
