Director Rob Marshall and his partner, producer John DeLuca, are two of the hardest-working men in show business, taking on artistic productions for stage and screen. So don’t you think they deserve a nice, new home to spend some of that hard-won down time together?
They thought so, apparently. The talented fellas have secured a splendidly appointed co-op at 16 East 11th Street in the heart of Greenwich Village. The 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit in the circa 1900 townhome is one of 17 units in the five-story brick building.
They paid $4.364 million and took possession in July — though the couple might be spending these sweltering summer days out in Sagaponack, where they have owned a beach home in the Hamptons enclave since 2004.
In addition to being within striking distance of the East Village, West Village, Soho and Gramercy Park, Marshall and De Luca have clearly opted for old-school downtown NYC living.
The co-op doesn’t come cheap, however, with more than $3,100 per month in maintenance fees. Of course, with Tony and Emmy nominations galore adding to his Oscar-winning directorial turn in the hit movie “Chicago,” Marshall has earned the rights — and the dough — to pay the co-op freight.
