Mark Wahlberg rented Central Park West condo goes from $7M to $16.5M in four years:Welcome to unit 26C at 15 Central Park West, arguably the best inium project known to man. The 2,761 square-foot three-bedroom on the 26th floor just sold for $16.5 million. Mark Wahlberg lived there. ARod almost just rented it. And it was sold in six weeks to a glamorous woman from Monaco. That's not the half of it. There are so many bold-faced names involved with this unit, we wonder if any apartment in this building doesn't have a celebrity attached to it. Already home to Denzel Washington and Sting, the building continues to break its own records. The square-foot price for this apartment comes to $5,976, the most expensive yet for a mid-level floor. Rented by actor Mark Wahlberg for $32,000 in 2009, the home was owned by real estate super-lawyer Warren Estis. It sold after six weeks on the market by Ken Deutsch, who started his own Madison Ave. boutique brokerage two years ago. Yankee slugger and real estate lover Alex Rodriguez even bid on the place, as a rental. ARod was allegedly paying about $35,000 for an apartment on an upper floor in the building when he vacated the apartment because the owner wished to sell the unit. For 26C, he offered $37,000 for the first year and $39,000 for the second. But new owners both wanted a little more, around $40,000. ARod decided not go up the few grand to stay in the building, and looked to purchase an apartment elsewhere. (Neither Rodriguez nor his agent Adam Modlin could be reached for comment, but the Daily News learned the price of the rental was not a factor. The slugger decided it was time to buy.) The current tenant, who was already renting from the new owner, will pay 38,000 for the first year and 40,000 for the second year.

Linda Hamilton’s Says Hasta La Vista to Her $5.495 Million mansion:As James Cameron’s “Titanic” sinks its way into another gazillion dollars during its current 3D run in theaters, multiple entertainment news outlets have looked back at Mr. Cameron’s movies over the years. Known as much for his control freak tendencies, as for his innovations in equipment and technology, and his directorial and writing skills, James Cameron has managed to become the wealthiest man in Hollywood, and has written, directed, and co-produced the two highest grossing films in Hollywood history, “Titanic” and “Avatar”. Back in the early 80s, when he was just a special effects guy trying to transition into directing, he sold a script for $1 to a small production company, in exchange for the right to direct it. That film, called, “The Terminator” would go on to establish him as a writer/director of note, and would introduce the world to Sarah Connor, as portrayed by actress Linda Hamilton. Ms. Hamilton would go on to become Mr. Cameron’s wife, and to enjoy a successful career as an actress. She most recently appeared on the last two seasons of “Chuck”. She and Mr. Cameron ultimately divorced, and she moved into their Malibu home. This March, she placed that home on the market. The 4,754 square foot, $5.495 million mansion, includes five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a waterfall, a pool surrounded by boulders, a two-bedroom guesthouse, a six-car garage, high ceilings, terra cotta floors, multiple fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, a massive sunlit kitchen, an outdoor patio, extensive lawns, and easy access to the beach. The mansion is gorgeous, and with its illustrious pedigree, it is only a matter of time before someone snatches it up.
