Producer Bob Shaye Spends Big in New York

Word on the Big Apple real estate street is that producer and New Line Cinema founder Bob Shaye dropped nearly $13 million on a four bedroom and 4.5 bathroom duplex penthouse in a brand new boutique building just outside the lower Manhattan access to the Holland Tunnel at the northern tip of the famously high-priced Tribeca neighborhood. Floor plans included with online listings show the lower level of the 3,100-square-foot aerie has head-roomy 11-foot ceilings and vast walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors that open to a nearly 1,500-square-foot wrap-around terrace. A glass-walled gallery links the 600-square-foot living room to a combination dining room and open chef’s kitchen fitted with white matte lacquer cabinets and slab marble countertops. A powder room and small staff bedroom and bath are tucked discreetly behind the kitchen, while two good-sized guest bedrooms with walk-in closets and en suite bathrooms share the upper floor with a commodious corner master suite complete with two huge walk-in closets, marble-walled bathroom, and unimpeded views that sweep across the Hudson River.

Shaye, who produced the “Nightmare on Elm Street” franchise and the Oscar-hoovering “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, maintains a bicoastal property portfolio: a pied-a-terre on 1.15 acres in Beverly Hills, owned since 1999 when it was bought for just under $500,00; an oceanfront compound in the Hamptons, acquired in early 2004 for $5 million; and two full-floor condominiums, one directly on top of the other, in a posh apartment house on New York’s Central Park West that combined span about 3,000 square feet.
