vi lived at the Park Millennium until he decided to head downtown. Kevin Winter/Getty Images for iHeartMediaKuperberg completed major updates upon buying the unit.“It was a pied--terre before,” Schier explained. “They completely redid and gut renovated the apartment,” included adding African wenge wood floors, solid oak doors and woodwork details throughout the library and living room. There’s a fireplace in the library, which is also where a rather special guitar is hung.“Jon Bon Jovi and the rest of the band signed the guitar as a congratulations gift for the owner,” Schier said.“We’re currently in discussions about whether we’ll be including that in the sale!”Bon Jovi, however, wasn’t the only famous face in the Park Millennium—Regis Philbin and Howard Stern both own apartments in the buildi
ng, and the buyer of this unit will be “sharing a floor with Liam
Neeson,” Schier said.Just a casual Bon Jovi guitar.

refrigerator.Actually, Bon Jovi definitely would have appreciated that, considering he recently made the foray into the world of wine—he launched his own ros, named Diving Into Hampton Water, along with his son and French winemaker Gerard Bertrand, in February.It’s a shame Bon Jovi never had the chance to stock a wine fridge like this with the pink drink. Alas, he continued his indecisive real estate shopping spree, upgrading to a far more expansive home.St. Charles of New York redid the very blue kitchens.

Bon Jovi eventually accepted $34 million for the Mercer Street duplex in 2015, shortly before he doled out $12.88 million for a 10-room spread at 150 Charles Street in the West Village, where he joined the likes of Irina Shayk and Ben Stiller.Alas, that still wasn’t the perfect home, and Bon Jovi tossed it back onto the market for $17.25 million in June 2017; he ended up taking a $15 million offer in early 2018.Bon Jovi must have liked the neighborhood, as he’s staying put in the West Village, at least for now. He paid a hefty $18.94 million for an apartment at 155 West 11th Street, in the Greenwich Lane complex, where he’ll be in the company of fellow residents like Michael
Kors, Toni Garrn and Tamara Mellon.
