Victoria's Secret model Emma Heming is the latest celebrity buyer in the Broadway Hollywood building in Los Angeles' Hollywood area, paying an undisclosed amount -- but probably less than $700,000 -- with her then-fiance, party promoter/DJ/nightclub guru Brent Bolthouse for a unit in the building that she no longer occupies.In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the purchase by the now-split Heming and Bolthouse, which closed on July 31 and which was recorded on August 31. As we have noted in the past, the Broadway Hollywood building, which is at 1645 N. Vine St. / 6310 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, is a 10-story, former department store that is right on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with units ranging in size from 931 square feet to more than 2,000 square feet. Check out thebuilding's website here.
Other celebrity buyers in the building have included actorDanny Masterson, and actressCharlize Theron. Records show that Heming and Bolthouse purchased a sixth-floor unit, meaning that the unit is just down the hall from Masterson. It's unclear what will happen to the unit now that Heming and Bolthouse are no more, but one thing is clear: Heming won't be living there. With their split, she moved back to New York City. In fact, the New York Post's fine celebrity real estate columnist (and our longtime pal)Braden Keil exclusively reportedback on November 15 that Heming had paid $1.85 million for a two-bedroom, 1,500-square-foot condominium unit on 17th Street in Manhattan's Chelsea area. We haven't been able to find more details on that purchase in public records yet, but when we do, we'll of course report them here. One final note: Bolthouse clearly has a penchant for fine architecture. He openly informs the world on hisMySpace pagethat he bought and refurbished a house that was designed by celebrated architect John Lautner that is known as the Pollin home. Sure enough, records show that Bolthouse paid $975,000 in 2004 for the 1,342-square-foot house, which is in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills. (The address for that house as shown in public records is different -- by just a slight amount -- from the address for the house that is shown on various Lautner-related websites.) Recall that Lautner (1911-1994) was the architect who also had designed the oceanfront house at 22426 Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, Calif. that actress Courteney Cox and her actor husband David Arquette had owned through their Bring It Trust from 2001 until selling it earlier this year for $27,250,000.
