Gigi and Bella Have Been Sneakily Investing In NYC Real Estate- Here’s What The Duo Has Been Up To For The Last Two Years
Word on the street is that the Hadid sisters have been really secretive as of late. The sisters, being a significant part of the modeling industry, have had their fair share of controversies. But, which celebrity hasn’t, right?
ELLE | Supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella have managed to keep their NYC apartments hidden until now
Gimme Shelter recently broke a story on the supermodel sisters. In the exclusive piece, the magazine revealed that over the last two years, Bella and Gigi Hadid have been secretly investing in properties in Manhattan. And, they have dropped some serious coin into the market!
It is a wonder how their purchases have gone unreported for so long. Yes, living a life of fame isn’t easy. One often does start craving privacy. But, it is unusual for celebrity homes to go unknown for this long. Since 2018, the duo has collectively poured about $12 million into Manhattan real estate, without so much as a buzz up until now.
Gigi’s Hush-Hush Purchase
6sqft | Gigi Hadid’s beautiful NoHo apartment
The first silent purchase reported was conducted in 2018, under Gigi’s name. The model spent almost $6 million in a townhouse in NoHo. It is quite noteworthy that this is the only property designed by Anna Selldorf, which has a townhouse.
Sitting on an area of 2,955 square feet, the magnificent apartment features three bedrooms and 3-and-a-half bathrooms. The townhouse’s design and amenities are enough for anyone to fall in love with it. Its 770 square foot secluded balcony comes complete with a cozy fireplace and a kitchen. The master suite, above that, features a large walk-in closet, heated floors, and a spa-like marble bathroom. The living area is designed with an open floor plan and sits below the master suite.
Before this, in 2016, Gigi had purchased another unit in the same building. The apartment is known to house two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. This purchase put a dent worth $3.97 million in Gigi’s wallet. Rumors suggest that the model is planning on combining the unit with her townhouse soon.
Bella’s Hush Hush Purchase

On the other hand, Bella Hadid opted for a renovated penthouse in SoHo, which she took off of the hands of Kaspar Basse in 2018 for $6.1 million. The luxurious unit sits on an area of 2,180 square feet. It also houses two bedrooms and 2-and-a-half bathrooms. The building, initially constructed in 1877, had not been converted into condominiums until 2016. Due to this, the building still has a lot of its original elements, like brick barrel-vaulted ceilings.
Keeping the modern market in mind, the building was substantially upgraded to include custom lights and a 100-bottle wine cellar. On top of that, the master suite contains a whole wall of glass-fronted windows. Moreover, the private roof deck also offers enviable outdoor space.
