Actress Renee Zellweger has quietly paid $2,200,000 to buy a commercial condominium unit on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report that Zellweger’s East Coast Group closed on April 16 on the 1,266-square-foot unit in the building on 82nd Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, according to public records. The sale was recorded 10 days later.

Zellweger’s planned use for the condo unit in the 82nd Street building is unclear. Public records show that the actress owns at least three other properties, including a house on Egypt Lane in East Hampton, N.Y. that she purchased through her trust in spring 2003 for $2,150,000, a house on Cotton Road in Pomfret, Conn. that she purchased in late 2004 for $1,320,000, and a 39-acre tract in Union County, Tenn. that she purchased in May 2005 for $70,000, according to public records.

She also famously was the brief owner of a 6,410-square-foot house on Bellagio Road in Los Angeles’ Bel-Air area, which she purchased in 2002 for $6.8 million and then sold the following year for exactly $7 million to actress Debra Messing, according to public records and news accounts.
