Media billionaire Sean Parker, of Naptster fame, has acquired, for an undisclosed amount, the five-story townhouse at 36 West 10th Street, in Greenwich Village. Parker also currently owns the five-story townhouse at 38 West 10th Street and the three-story townhouse at 40 West 10th Street. He plans to combine the three properties into a single-family mansion, the New York Post reported.

The first rendering has been revealed of the seven-story, six-unit mixed-use project planned at 34 East 13th Street, located on the corner of University Place in Greenwich Village. A rendering posted to the construction site was spotted by EV Grieve. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 22,995 square feet. It will include 2,135 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by six full-floor residential units on the second through seventh floors. The apartments, which will be condominiums, should average a spacious 2,881 square feet apiece. There will be private residential storage in the cellar, and the top-floor unit will have a private roof terrace. Ranger Properties is the developer, and Morris Adjmi’s Financial District-based Morris Adjmi Architects is designing.
