Two she owns two other townhouses and a studio in the neighborhood
Fashion Designer Cynthia Rowley has quite the penchant for West Village properties. In addition to the three she already owns in the neighborhood, Rowley has now added a fourth to her roster with the purchase of a townhouse at 394 Bleecker Street, the Observer reports.
Rowley spent $8.9 million on the 19-foot wide townhouse which stands three-stories tall and was built in 1901. The designer plans to use the ground floor for her company, and will rent out the upper floors after renovations.
Rowley has lived at a townhouse on Perry Street since 2004 along with her husband and two children. The house was engulfed in controversy early last year however, when the fashion designer tried to add a penthouse addition to the house. In doing so, construction workers allegedly damaged the landmarked townhouse next door, and the residents there sued Rowley over the matter.
In addition to the Perry Street house, Rowley also owns a three-story property on Morton Street, which she purchased in 2014, and then converted into her offices. And finally, there’s her studio at 367 Bleecker Street—seems like she never wants to leave the neighborhood.
