Fashion mogul drops $25 million on mod loft.


Elie Tahari must like the fit of Rupert Murdoch and Wendy Deng’s 141 Prince Street pad. Sources close to the fashion magnate say he’s buying the 9,300-square-foot triplex loft—asking price $28 million—that Murdoch bought six years ago. Another source says Tahari’s paying about $25 million for the Christian Liaigre– designed lair. There’s a screening room, a gym, an enclosed sunroom where Murdoch liked to read the Sunday papers, a dining room that’s hosted Ariel Sharon, and a 2,700-square-foot roof deck where Russell Crowe attended a barbecue. “Everything was expensively done because we thought we would be here forever,” Deng told the Times. (Last year, the Murdochs bought a $44 million Fifth Avenue penthouse formerly owned by Laurance S. Rockefeller.) Tahari, who was unavailable for comment, currently lives in the Trump International Hotel and Tower. Murdoch declined to comment.
