Zayn Malik Sells NYC Penthouse Blocks from Gigi Hadid's Apartment at a Loss for $9.45 Million
Zayn Malik has reportedly offloaded his New York City penthouse for $9.45 million.
PEOPLE reported in August 2019 that the founding One Direction member had listed his New York City home, located in Soho, for $10.8 million. According to Business Insider, he dropped the price to $10.2 million a few months later, and eventually closed a deal in December. The Real Deal first reported the sale.
City property records show Malik, 26, first purchased the nearly 3,600-square-foot condo in March 2018, shortly after he confirmed his break-up with on-and-off girlfriend supermodel Gigi Hadid, 24, via Twitter. The New York Observer noted at the time that he had purchased it for $10.62 million, meaning the recent sale was a $1.3 million loss for the singer.
The sprawling bachelor pad is located just a stone's throw away from Hadid's own downtown apartment, so the purchase left fans speculating that the pair may rekindle their more than two-year romance. Based on social media posts, the two did get back together for a time in December 2019. Hadid posted on Instagram about cooking with Malik's mom's recipe, which his mom then reposted on her own Instagram Story.
N.Y.C.-based Dallien Realty listed Malik's four-bedroom, four-bathroom property with agent Amanda Hudson. According to the Dallien listing, the apartment is, "positioned like a crown jewel…in the heart of SoHo's Cast Iron Historic District."
Listed as "Penthouse A," the apartment is designed as a loft, with a staircase leading up to a sprawling, 932-square-foot private roof terrace, perfect for entertaining. Photos of the stunning space can be seen on StreetEasy.
Initial news of the listing last year came days after Hadid was spotted out with The Bachelorette's Tyler Cameron, 26. Cameron, who finished second on Hannah Brown's recent season, was seen with the model at Soho House in Brooklyn in a photo that surfaced on Twitter.

Just one night later, Cameron and Hadid hung out again, this time at Frames Bowling Lounge in New York City, PEOPLE confirmed. According to a source, they enjoyed a few hours of bowling in the lounge's VIP suite with some friends, followed by an hour of karaoke. Cameron then missed a court appearance in Palm Beach, Florida, one day after the bowling date.
