Kirsten Dunst’s Former Manhattan Penthouse Hits the Market for $7 Million

Two years after she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Power of the Dog, Kirsten Dunst is making her long-awaited return to the silver screen in the upcoming A24 action thriller Civil War. And just like that, the actress’s former New York City penthouse is back on the market.

Asking just shy of $7 million, the industrial-chic apartment at 533 Canal Street is perched on top of a pre-war co-op in lower Manhattan’s Hudson Square neighborhood. The Hollywood star, whose proverbial big break was the 1994 horror film Interview with the Vampire, splashed out a cool $3 million for the eighth-floor aerie back in 2007, The New York Post first reported. She sold up in 2018 for a profitable $4.4 million, and the apartment later had a brief stint as a $12,500-per-month rental.

Dunst’s former home features oversized arched windows, soaring 11-foot ceilings, wide-plank hardwood flooring, and tons of exposed brick, and, according to the listing, which is held by Laura Weinkam of Corcoran, the two-bedroom, two-bath apartment recently underwent a top-to-bottom renovation.

Among the abode’s newer features is an open chef’s kitchen equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, glossy marble countertops, and custom blue cabinets. Other highlights include the primary suite, which has been totally redone and sports a custom-designed wardrobe that leads to a windowed walk-in closet. There’s also an ensuite bathroom, kitted out with a free-standing, vintage soaking tub, a separate shower stall, custom mosaic tiled floors, and a towel warmer.

The secondary bedroom, separated from the living room by sliding glass and brass panels, is currently configured as a library, but guests can still be accommodated with a Murphy bed that’s cleverly tucked within a wall of built-ins. Nearby is the second bathroom.

The boutique building, which was originally built in 1911, has a history as the former venue for the infamous Canal Zone party of 1978. Conceptualized by Stan Peskett, Michael Holman, and Fab 5 Freddy, the shindig was held at Peskett’s 5,000-square-foot loft and was attended by the late Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was an unknown graffiti artist at the time.

In the years since, the co-op, also known by its alternate address of 477 Washington Street, has attracted a fair share of other well-known celebrities. Most notably, it hosted former R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe and director Gus Van Sant. Ex-brothers-in-law Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix were also reported to have shared an apartment in the building, which sold in 2020 for $3.1 million.
