Nicole Richie and Joel Madden have paid $999,999 for a two-bedroom condominium unit in New York City's Bowery.  We're a bit late to the party on this one, but we wanted to weigh in on the couple's long-rumored purchase of the condo unit, which we now know is at 199 Bowery in Manhattan. The New York Post's Page Six column on March 6 went nuts in breaking the news of the celeb couple's purchase in the Bowery, but we have a few details that we can add as well.  First off, records show that Nicole and Joel purchased the unit through their Brass Knuckles Properties LLC corporation, which is a different entity than the CNR Trust that Nicole has used in the past to own property in Los Angeles. Records show that Madden and Richie went to contract to purchase the unit on October 15, with the deal closing on December 10. The transaction was quietly recorded with city officials on December 28. The couple's new, approximately 1,000-square-foot 11th-floor apartment in the Bowery 'is very simple, nothing high-design,' a real-estate broker told Page Six. Features in the unit include two baths, a kitchen with stainless steel GE Profile appliances, black granite counters and Shaker maple cabinetry, according to listing information. The unit is in the 12-story Nolita Place condominium building, which was constructed in 2001. We were not as quick on this particular transaction, but we've been very much on the ball in the past with Richie's other real estate. On December 29, we broke the story of Richie's CNR Trust having quietly sold her condo unit in the Empire West building in West Hollywood, Calif. for $2,250,000. And we also had broken the story on September 28 of the $1,200,000 amount that Nicole's adoptive father, musician Lionel Richie, had paid to purchase a 2,274-square-foot town house in Los Angeles' Century City area as a residence for his daughter and her current dude and baby daddy. Most recently, our friends over at the Real Estalker just reported on Monday that Nicole and Joel are preparing to put the Bowery apartment back on the market. So stay tuned -- Nicole and Joel's real estate adventure appears far from over. Check out an online listing sheet -- complete with photos -- for what appears to be the unit here.
