(NEW YORK, NEW YORK)— Julie Wainwright, CEO of luxury consignment store the RealReal, purchased a pricey condo in the Woolworth Tower for $6.75 million, the New York Post reports.

The Woolworth building was the tallest skyscraper in New York from 1913 to 1930, when it was eclipsed by the Empire State building. It had originally housed office buildings and commercial space, until its upper floors were converted to residential space in 2012. Its legendary tenants include Nicola Tesla and the Manhattan Project.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo is on the 34thfloor of the iconic neo-Gothic building, which features a host of upscale amenities like a swimming pool. Sotheby’s International Realty listed the building.

Wainwright founded The RealReal in 2011, as a place where passionate vintage shoppers could easily find gently-used second hand luxury items in an easy-to-navigate online store. Its first brick-and-mortar location opened in Soho in 2017. Its flagship store is now one of three in the US, with another location on the Upper East Side and another in West Hollywood, CA.
