This apartment in the Chelsea Mercantile Building has had more than its fair share of power dwellers. Designer Marc Jacobs (pictured) just moved out after living here for more than a year while he readied his townhouse at the Superior Ink building. (He was reportedly paying $20,000 a month.) His landlord was the former New York Ranger and current Montreal Canadien Scott Gomez, who paid $3.2 million for the property four years ago. But before Jacobs, Gomez had another prominent tenant: Stephen Levinson, an executive producer of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, In Treatment, and the recently wrapped Entourage (which, rumor has it, will soon be reincarnated as a movie). Levinson’s business partner is Mark Wahlberg, with whom he shares a much-blogged-about bromance, so it’s safe to assume that other members of their Hollywood entourage hung out a lot here, too.
