Grammy-winning musician advertises $8.25 million glass condo in Manhattan


Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer Philip Lawrence and his fashion designer wife, Urbana Chappa Lawrence, bid farewell to West End Avenue, after launching their glass-fronted apartment on New York’s thoroughfare on the market for $8.25 million.

Mr Lawrence, 41, has won eight Grammy awards including Album of the Year and Song of the Year for his work with Bruno Mars.


Spanning more than 3,000 square feet, the four-bedroom condo has been in the couple’s hands since they bought it in 2019 for nearly $7.6 million, property records show.

“It was important for us to choose a location with a view from where we could see the city skyline and the Hudson River, so we did just that,” Ms. Chappa Lawrence told Mansion Global through d ‘a representative. “Our view of the Hudson River and the Empire State Building is magical.”

Located between West 59th and West 60th streets, the light-flooded home was “pole-friendly”, according to the listing with Maria Daou of Coldwell Banker Warburg, which put the home on the market earlier in January.

“My clients have brought their own style and flair to this amazing apartment,” Ms. Daou said.

Loaded with bespoke furniture, wallpaper and lighting, and with a lacquered ceiling in the great room, “it really is a jewel box in the sky,” she added.

The property also features a custom-designed Italian kitchen by Jeffrey Beers with a wine fridge, a master suite with a large walk-in closet and bathroom, as well as high-tech automation and security systems.

“Our favorite part of the house is our great room, which was completely customized by our amazing designers Patrick Dragonette and Charles Tucker, from Los Angeles,” said Ms. Chappa Lawrence. “From this room we had an amazing vacation watching the snowfall.”

“As Carrie Bradshaw would say, ‘Women come to New York for two things: labels and love.’ Well, we came to this city for the view and for the love – and whoever grabs this house will have the same feelings,” she said.
